About Me

Dakuo Wang is an Associate Professor at Northeastern University, jointly appointed at Khoury College of Computer Sciences and the College of Arts, Media and Design. His research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI) and artificial intelligence (AI), with a focus on the exploration, development, and evaluation of human-centered AI (HCAI) systems. The overarching goal is to democratize AI for every person and every organization, so that they can access their own AI and collaborate with these real-world AI systems (human-AI collaboration).

Before joining Northeastern, Dakuo was a Senior Staff Member at IBM Research, Principal Investigator at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, and a Visiting Scholar at Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence. He got his Ph.D. from the University of California Irvine (advisor: Judith Olson and Gary Olson). He has worked as a designer, researcher, and engineer in the U.S., China, and France. He serves in organizing committees, program committees, and editorial boards for a variety of venues, and ACM has recognized him as an ACM Distinguished Speaker.

I am falling behind in updating my own publications; Google Scholar does a better job than I do.
