Hi, I'm Fred Hohman
I'm a Research Scientist at Apple
I design and develop interactive interfaces to help people understand machine learning models and 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. My dissertation on interactive interfaces for interpretability won the ACM SIGCHI Outstanding Dissertation Award and was supported by a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship.
I have collaborated with designers, developers, artists, and scientists while working at Apple, Microsoft Research, NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, and Pacific Northwest National Lab.
