Minsuk Kahng 강민석

Hi, I'm a Research Scientist at Google in the People + AI Research (PAIR) team, part of the Responsible AI group.

My research aims to empower researchers and practitioners to gain insights from interactive data visualization, enabling them to responsibly develop AI systems. To achieve this goal, I build novel visual analytics tools that help these people explore large datasets for AI.

At Google, I develop interactive data visualization tools for the development of large language models (LLMs). These tools have been successfully deployed in Google engineers' workflows to interpret the behavior of LLMs, discover bias and errors, and improve their datasets.

Before joining Google, I was an Assistant Professor at Oregon State University. I received my Ph.D. from Georgia Tech, advised by Polo Chau, and was recognized by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, a Google PhD Fellowship, and a Georgia Tech Dissertation Award.

Areas of expertise: Data Visualization, Visual Analytics, Explainable AI, Human-Computer Interaction

Minsuk Kahng is a Research Scientist at Google in the People + AI Research (PAIR) team. His research focuses on building visual analytics tools for helping practitioners responsibly develop and interactively interpret machine learning systems for large datasets. He combines human-centered interactive methods and data-driven scalable techniques at the intersection of Data Visualization, Explainable AI, Human-Computer Interaction, and Data Science. Kahng's research has led to deployed technologies (e.g., LLM Comprator for Google, ActiVis for Facebook) and open-sourced tools (e.g., GAN Lab developed with Google). His research has been recognized by pretious awards, including Google PhD Fellowship and NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and supported by NSF, DARPA, Google, and NAVER. Prior to Google, Kahng was an Assistant Professor at Oregon State University, leading the Data Interaction and Visualization Lab. He received his Ph.D. from Georgia Tech with a Dissertation Award and received his Master's and Bachelor's degrees from Seoul National University in South Korea.
