• Cluster Analysis and Information Visualization

    Here’s a session proposal by Christopher Green:

    “I am trying to extract, empirically, “schools of thought” in psychology at the turn of the 20th century. I am doing this by computing the (cosine) similarities between all the articles in runs of psychology journals from the era, and then doing a kind of cluster analysis. The results, thus far, are interesting, but very numerically dense. I would like to talk about ways to convert these kinds of results into graphical representations that will be more intuitive and appealing to audiences who do not understand (or particularly want to understand) the math behind them.”
