Augmented Intelligence: data-driven, human-aware
The Visual Data Analysis Lab is part of the Biosystems department of the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering at KU Leuven, Belgium. The lab supports domain experts and lay users to make sense of large and/or complex datasets. Using a visual analytics approach, automated analysis techniques are combined with interactive data visualization to enable reasoning and hypothesis generation.
The methodology is particularly well-fit for the discovery of unexpected phenomena in large and dynamic datasets; it is the best approach for tackling open problems for which no clear solutions seem to exist, and even the questions are unknown.
By applying visual design, interactive data visualisation and machine learning to agricultural and other data, the lab hopes to contribute to tackling current challenges in agriculture and climate, such as biodiversity, sustainability and robustness.
