SeeSaw - A semantic visual computational platform

SeeSaw. A new tool that analyzes and visualizes comments for readers, who can connect to the comments in real time, at-a-glance.

SeeSaw is a semantic, visual, computational platform. The tool mines, sorts, visualizes, and put content into context, helping readers and authors see their community. It adds value to content that is already associated with a publication.

Motivation: On web sites as well as blogs, readers’ comments are presented as lists. Readers have to scroll through these lists to get an idea of other people’s reactions. Given the presentation format, readers just may not reach the comment that could pique their curiosity before they move on to another site.
