Hi, I'm Fred Hohman
I'm a Research Scientist at Apple
I research how to enable machine learning interpretability at scale and for everyone, by designing and developing interactive interfaces to help people confidently understand data-driven systems. Besides building tools, I also create data visualizations and write interactive articles to simply communicate complex ideas.
I received my PhD from Georgia Tech where I worked with Polo Chau and Alex Endert as a member of the Polo Club of Data Science. My research was supported by a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship.
I have collaborated with designers, developers, and scientists while working at Apple, Microsoft Research, NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, and Pacific Northwest National Lab.
