A Partially Supervised Metric Multidimensional Scaling Algorithm for Textual Data Visualization

This video was recorded at 7th International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis, Ljubljana 2007. Multidimensional Scaling Algorithms (MDS) allow us to visualize high dimensional object relationships in an intuitive way. An interesting application of the MDS algorithms is the visualization of the semantic relations among documents or terms in textual databases. However, the MDS algorithms proposed in the literature exhibit a low discriminant power. The unsupervised nature of the algorithms and the 'curse of dimensionality' favor the overlapping among different topics in the map. This problem can be overcome considering that many textual collections provide frequently a categorization for a small subset of documents. In this paper we define new semi-supervised measures that reflect better... Show More
