TOPICKS: VISUALIZING ELABORATE TOPIC MODELS FOR USER COMPREHENSION

Topicks is a means to visualize topic modeling outputs. The interactive visualization of topic models is a promising approach to summarizing large sets of textual data. Incorporating a radial layout, users can view the relationships between topics, terms and the corpus as a whole. Interacting with topic and term nodes, as well as a related bar chart, provides the user with various ways to manipulate the visualization and explore the data.
