I am Asma Ghandeharioun, currently a PhD candidate at Affective Computing group, MIT Media Lab. I am fortunate to have Roz as my advisor and a great source of inspiration. I have had research experiences at Google Research, Microsoft Research, and EPFL, many of which turned into long-term exciting collaborations.
Towards Human-Centered Optimality Criteria
Building a system that is optimal from a human-centered point of view is challenging. There are many variables that influence the problem definition itself let alone its solution. In my research, I have approached this problem from three perspectives by aiming to build systems that: 1) better interpret humans; 2) are better interpreted by humans; 3) augment humans' capabilities.
