Interactive machine learning for user-innovation toolkits : an action design research approach

  title={Interactive machine learning for user-innovation toolkits : an action design research approach},
  author={Francisco Bernardo},
Machine learning offers great potential to developers and end users in the creative industries. However, to better support creative software developers' needs and empower them as machine learning users and innovators, the usability of and developer experience with machine learning tools must be considered and better understood. This thesis asks the following research questions: How can we apply a user-centred approach to the design of developer tools for rapid prototyping with Interactive… 


User-Centred Design Actions for Lightweight Evaluation of an Interactive Machine Learning Toolkit
This work introduces a framework for user-centred design actions that was developed within the context of an European Union innovation project, RAPID-MIX, and describes how these actions used to uncover conceptual and technical limitations of the toolkit.
User Innovation in the music software industry: the case of Sibelius
The case illustrates the importance of a multifaceted approach in creating sustainable community engagement, as a means of integrating the community into wider R&D processes of the firm.
A Review of User Interface Design for Interactive Machine Learning
A structural and behavioural model of a generalised IML system is proposed and a solution principles for building effective interfaces for IML are identified, identified strands of user interface research key to unlocking more efficient and productive non-expert interactive machine learning applications.
Designing for effective end-user interaction with machine learning
This dissertation work aims to advance the understanding of how to design effective end-user interaction with interactive machine learning systems by investigating new techniques that move beyond naïve or ad-hoc approaches and balance the needs of both end-users and machine learning algorithms.
Grounding Interactive Machine Learning Tool Design in How Non-Experts Actually Build Models
This work investigated how non-experts build ML solutions for themselves in real life and suggested that, while challenging, making ML easy and robust should both be important goals of designing novice-facing ML tools.
User toolkits for innovation
Pioneering applications in areas ranging from the development of custom integrated circuits to theDevelopment of custom foods show that user toolkits for innovation can be much more effective than traditional, manufacturer-based development methods.
Design Principles for Tools to Support Creative Thinking
A set of “design principles” are developed to guide the development of new creativity support tools – that is, tools that enable people to express themselves creatively and to develop as creative thinkers to be not only more productive, but more innovative.
From User-Centered to Adoption-Centered Design: A Case Study of an HCI Research Innovation Becoming a Product
A case study of how an HCI research innovation goes through the process of transitioning from a university project to a revenue-generating startup financed by venture capital and raises questions about how the novelty and research contributions of HCI innovations with respect to their potential for commercial impact are evaluated.
Rapid Contextual Design: A How-To Guide to Key Techniques for User-Centered Design
This handbook introduces Rapid CD, a fast-paced, adaptive form of Contextual Design, a hands-on guide for anyone who needs practical guidance on how to use the Contextual design process and adapt it to tactical projects with tight timelines and resources.
Quantifying the Creativity Support of Digital Tools through the Creativity Support Index
The Creativity Support Index (CSI) is a psychometric survey designed for evaluating the ability of a creativity support tool to assist a user engaged in creative work, and how the CSI scores can help target design improvements.
