Inaugural lecture by Jürgen Bernard, 04.04.2022

You are warmly invited to the inaugural lecture of Prof. Jürgen Bernard:

Interacting with Data

Prof. Jürgen Bernard will briefly provide an overview of key aspects of data analysis, before he will guide the audience through a design space for addressing data analysis challenges using a collaborative and human-centered design methodology. The key idea is to incorporate both the strengths of humans and machines to tackle complex data analysis challenges. In the main part of his talk, Jürgen Bernard will present a series of human-in-the-loop solutions in different application domains, each involving interactive and visual data analysis systems, enabling users to make sense from data, gain undiscovered knowledge, and make informed decisions.

Jürgen Bernard received his Ph.D. Degree in 2015, when he was with Fraunhofer IGD. Starting in 2016, he was a Post-doc researcher at TU Darmstadt, leading the Visual-Interactive Machine Learning efforts. In 2019, he became a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. His career awards include the Hugo-Geiger Prize for excellent Ph.D. theses in 2016, the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine in 2017, and the EuroVis Young researcher Researcher Award in 2021. 

The inaugural lecture is public and will take place in the Aula of the University of Zurich (KOL G-201, Rämistrasse 71, 8006 Zurich) on Monday, 4 April 2022, at 5pm. No reservation is needed.
