ScholarOctopus is a set of tools/pages that help explore academic literature. Currently, ScholarOctopus is a collection of pointers to 7000 papers from 34 Computer Vision and Machine Learning conferences (CVPR/ICCV/NIPS/ICML/ECCV/BMVC) between 2006 and 2014.


The first visualization I wrote for this data is to compute bigram tfidf vectors and embed them with t-SNE in 2D. The visualization can be found here. The page contains a few more links to stats and some pointer data.

If you'd like to write your own visualization "view" of the data, I warmly welcome additional contributions, likely in form of another .html file, or a patch to the current main file render/index.html.

The Data Collection Scripts / Data Stats Compute / etc.

Currently private. Might release in the future.
