Welcome! I am Wesley Hanwen Deng. I am an incoming Ph.D. student at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently holding Research Assistant positions at the School of Information, UC Berkeley under Niloufar Salehi, and HCII under Haiyi Zhu, Ken Holstein, and Steven Wu.
My current research interests are Human-centered Machine Learning (ML), Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and, more broadly, Human-AI Interaction. Below are my on-going projects. If any of them resonates with you, feel free to reach out through email or twitter!
🤖💬 As low machine translation quality disproportionately impacts vulnerable communities like immigrants, how could we better communicate the machine translation qualities to the end users through a Slack Chatbot?
𝐖🌏 How could we facilitate public deliberation of ML-based system deployment in Wikipedia community when stakeholders have competing values?
🤝🙏 Current ML "Fairness Toolkits" are designed for use by lone developers rather than collaborative teams. How could we catalyze collaborations among industrial practitioners with diverse professional backgrounds?
