Yucheng Jin 金昱成

Yucheng Jin is a Research Assistant Professor affiliated with the HCI-RecSys Group led by Dr. Li Chen at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). He is also a member of PI (Positive Intelligence) Lab. Before joining HKBU, he was a senior UX designer at Lenovo Research. He earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). During his Ph.D. study, he was a member of the HCI Augment Group, and was supervised by Dr. Katrien Verbert and Dr. Nava Tintarev. He has published more than 20 papers in the leading conferences and journals of Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence (e.g., CHI, CSCW, IUI, RecSys, CIKM, UMUAI) and held more than ten patents. In addition, he regularly serves as the program committee member for ACM RecSys and ACM IUI conferences.

Research Interests

portrait

His research is situated in the long-standing quest to "Augmenting human intellect." He studies how humans interact or collaborate with AI systems in two major application domains: human health & well-being, music recommendation and generation, and augmented creativity. His research interests include the following topics:

  • Human-AI Interaction and Collaboration
  • UX of Recommender Systems (e.g., trust, explanation, personalization, and user control)
  • Music and Augmented Creativity
  • Human Health and Well-being
