News: Summarization and Visualization

News: Summarization and Visualization (CITRIS* i4Science Lecture Series) by Laurent El Ghaoui.

I don’t know that I agree with the point: “Yet we can’t do without news!”

As much noise as is in the news, I think I could read about how it comes out a year later and not have missed much. 😉

Do watch this lecture as it is very interesting in that it counts and visualizes words in ways you might not expect. Great way to explore text resources.

There is a argument against normalization for search purposes.

For extra credit: How would you test a search engine to see how normalization was affecting its results?
