One of the new releases at ILTA was Hypergraph from Recommind, a visualisation tool designed to make it easier to identify relevant information from the mass.
When you have large volumes of data, it is hard to draw quick conclusions from lists which must themselves be read and which speedily become part of the problem rather than part of the solution. Visualisation gives a quick review to data strategists – what stands
out, what is relevant to what we know, what supports or contradicts existing theories and what lurks in the data which we did not know about? Graphical representations of data can speed up the process of discovering these things.
Recommind’s web page about Hypergraph is here and there is a Hypergraph video here. Visualisation is by definition hard to explain – its whole point turns on things you look at. Videos are helpful, but, even better, you could ask Recommind to show you Hypergraph.
