VIDEO: Document Mining with the Overview Prototype

We’ve now completed one major story with Overview, and released the prototype system. But what, exactly, does Overview do? If you’re into buzzwords, you could say that Overview does semantic visualization and hierarchical clustering of large document sets, of course! Or, you could just watch this video of Overview in action on two document sets: 1,500 press releases scraped from the web, and 4,500 pages of declassified documents from the U.S. Department of State.

We’ll be making more videos in the future to help folks install and use Overview. Meanwhile, if you’d like to try Overview now, please see the installation instructions.
