Mining Shifting Concepts Through Time (ShiCo)
Word vector text mining change and continuity in conceptual history
A visualization that shows how the meaning we attach to a given concept shifts over time.
ShiCo is a tool for visualizing time shifting concepts. We refer to a concept as the set of words which are related to a given seed word. ShiCo uses a set of semantic models (word2vec) spanning a number of years to explore how concepts change over time -- words related to a given concept at time t=0 may differ from the words related to the same concept at time t=n.
