About Andrew:

Andrew Anderson

Andrew is currently pursuing his PhD in Computer Science. He was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland, moving to the USA in 2005 with his family. For his undergraduate career, he attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX, graduating with a double-major in Mathematics and Computer Science.

At Oregon State University, his major advisor is Dr. Margaret Burnett , and his minor advisor for statistics is Katie. Andrew collaborates with many teams, working on the eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) project, from user-study to interface design. As AI becomes more pervasive through society, making decisions on our behalf, they should be able to explain these decisions effectively. What should these explanations look like? What kinds of explanations are best for who? These are some of the goals of the project.
