How to Manage Output Uncertainty: Targeting the Actual End User Problem in Interactions with AI

Zelun Tony Zhang, Heinrich Hußmann
2021 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces  
To enable effective management of output uncertainty, we believe it is necessary to focus on truly human-centered AI designs that keep the human in an active role of control.  ...  Transparency and explainability should therefore not be the end goals, as such a focus tends to place the human into a passive supervisory role in what is in reality an algorithm-centered system design  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) under the LuFo VI-1 program, project KIEZ4-0.  ...

Incorporating user values into climate services

Wendy S. Parker, Greg Lusk
2019 Bulletin of The American Meteorological Society - (BAMS)  
What numerical value should be assigned to this parameter in the model? In some cases, there is substantial uncertainty about which option will give the most accurate results.  ...  Yet often there is significant uncertainty about which information sources are most accurate, especially in the case of model projections (Collins 2017) .  ...

A Vision for Numerical Weather Prediction in 2030 [article]

Tim Palmer
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this essay, I outline a personal vision of how I think Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) should evolve in the years leading up to 2030 and hence what it should look like in 2030.  ...  Here I want to focus on how NWP can better help save lives from increasingly extreme weather in those parts of the world where society is most vulnerable.  ...  This work was supported by the European Research Council Advanced Grant ITHACA, 741112.  ...

2016 Integrated Groundwater Management  
This chapter provides an overview of uncertainty in models and in the definition of a problem to model, highlights approaches to communicating and using predictions of uncertain outcomes and summarises  ...  It is intended to raise awareness of how alternative models and hence uncertainty can be explored in order to facilitate the integration of these techniques with groundwater management.  ...  In these cases, it is considered good practice to present "the modeller's estimate of the representative uncertainty given what is known about the system, the type of prediction(s), and the modeller's  ...

User responses to imperfect forecasts: Findings from an experiment with Kentucky wheat farmers

Yoko Kusunose, Lala Ma, David Van Sanford
2019 Weather, Climate, and Society  
We do this in the context of a very specific management choice-the timing and amount of nitrogen that Kentucky farmers apply to their wheat in early spring-in response to randomly generated 6-to-10-day  ...  We find that forecasts provide economically significant value to decision-makers only when they depart dramatically from what is normally expected.  ...  We are deeply appreciative of Matt Dixon and Rezaul Mahmood, who shared their time and expertise in helping us to understand the meteorological literature and the local precipitation data.  ...
