Been is interested in helping humans to communicate with complex machine learning models: not only by building tools (and tools to criticize them), but also studying their nature, compared to humans. Quanta magazine (written by John Pavlus) is a great description of what I do and why.

She believes the language that humans and machines communicate must be human-centered--higher-level, human-friendly concepts--so that it can make sense to everyone , regardless of how much they know about ML.

She gave keynote at ICLR 2022 (blog post, video TBD), ECML 2020 and at the G20 meeting in Argentina in 2018. One of my work TCAV received UNESCO Netexplo award, was featured at Google I/O 19' and in Brian Christian's book on The Alignment Problem.
