Classifying News and Social Media for Visualization
Using a semi-supervised machine learning and visual analytic workflow to simplify the creation of document classifiers
As we recently discussed at the 23rd International Conference on Information Visualisation, one challenge with visualizing unstructured sources like news and social media is getting the right data. To remedy these problems, we created a subsystem to help domain experts who lack data science knowledge so they can easily build better classifiers once and only occasionally maintain them.
