Interactive Corpora Visualization for 60 Years of AI Research
Proceedings of the NeurIPS 2021 Competitions and Demonstrations Track, PMLR 176:278-282, 2022.
Research in artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for over six decades. In that time, it has experienced rich growth, with on and off interest, as researchers tackle this problem from different angles using inspiration from various fields. However, it is difficult to see an overview of the journey that research in AI has taken in its lifespan. We created a visualization we call “60 Years of AI” that explores a (biased) selection of the most influential publications that have shaped the field. Our visualization shows similar works clustered together throughout time and allows users to input abstracts of new ideas to see where their ideas position in the landscape of the ever-growing field of AI.
