Towards Natural Language Empowered Interactive Data Analysis

Turkay, C. ORCID: 0000-0001-6788-251X and Henkin, R. (2018). Towards Natural Language Empowered Interactive Data Analysis. Poster presented at the EuroVis 2018 20th EG/VGTC Conference on Visualization, 04 - 08 June 2018, Brno, Czech Republic.


The recent advances in natural language based interaction methodologies offer promising avenues to enhance the interactive processes within the human-machine dialogue of visual analytics. We envisage \textit{Multimodal Data Analytics} as a novel approach for conducting data analysis that builds on the strengths of visual analytics and natural language as an expressive interaction channel. We investigate the potential enhancements from such a multimodal approach and discusses the preliminary outline for a structured methodology to study the role of natural language in data analytics. Our approach builds on a simple model of human machine dialogue for interactive data analysis which we then propose to instantiate as visual analytics workflows -- representations to study and operationalise interactive data analysis routines empowered by natural language interaction.
