Toward visualizing subjective uncertainty : a conceptual framework addressing perceived uncertainty through action randomness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Uncertainty is usually technically defined with associated metrics by visualization researchers. Next to this rather objective description, there is a subjective notion to uncertainty considering human experiences eliciting a response to the perceived uncertainty. This article aims to complement the default technical notion with a subjective perspective of uncertainty as we experienced. As a starting point, we introduce a conceptual framework aiming to explain the consequential life-cycle of subjective uncertainty in relation with visualization methods. The framework is illustrated by a case in which the redundancy of logged game play behavior is visualized to assist the discovery of subjective uncertainty. Our preliminary results show that visualizing the Shannon entropy of categorical action labels can be a promising method to probe subjective uncertainty.
