Trend Analysis

The Discovery Analytics Lab is aimed at discovering interesting trends in evolutionary data, especially, text corpus. This involves identification of important topics and studying their evolutionary characteristics: how does a new topic emerge, merge with other ideas or spawn new sub-concepts, or simply vanish away. The discovery analytics research group is interested in understanding the influential properties of the scientific literature and how the literature inspires the content of many successive research efforts in a particular field. The outcomes of this effort will be useful to the scientific communities in analyzing trend and predicting future direction.
