Visual Analysis of Financial News Articles
Project Description

The amount of information in text format such as emails, news articles, memos, and blogs grows explosively each year. How to handle these tremendous text documents is a major challenge facing big companies like Microsoft and IBM. We have built a 1.5 gigabyte corpus of 333,289 news articles published between 2004 and 2006 related to six major topics: Microsoft, Sony, NYSE, Merk, China, and Verizon. In this project, we will develop novel visual analytical techniques to analyze these financial news articles
