Nici is currently interested in the implications that machine learning has on User Experience and how it changes the implementation of User Interfaces for the future. As a UI Engineer, Nici has formulated efficient and performant client-side solutions that quickly visualize large amounts of data history to allow the user to make critical decisions based on those visualizations. Nici believe supervised learning tasks, given the desired inputs and outputs, allows interfaces to deliver a higher degree of visual analytics that reveals patterns discovered deep in the historical data. These learning signals allow the interface to learn general rules that map to specific visual representations of the data revealing more targeted analysis models.
