PixPlot is a simple library for visualizing 2D TSNE maps of large image collections in a performant WebGL viewer. A single command line utility prepares an input directory of images for viewing in an interactive environment.
Beyond Imitation fuses expertise in machine learning, dance practice, and particle physics to create open-source tools for the research of experimental dance.
Neural Neighbors allows users to browser visual tropes within 20,000 images from Yale University’s Meserve-Kunhardt collection. This visualizer uses approximate nearest neighbors to cluster image vectors pulled from the penultimate layer of an Inception convolutional neural network trained on ImageNet 2012.
Intertext identifies and visualizes instances of text reuse (imitation, adaptations, and plagiarisms) in large text collections. The algorithm used to identify text reuse minhashes all n-word windows from all input documents, allowing even consumer-grade hardware to efficiently identify text reuse with minimal RAM requirements.
Ensemble helps users identify metadata in Yale Drama playbills since the 1920’s. Built on the Scribe framework developed by Zooniverse and the New York Public Library, Ensemble features several custom views for filtering, marking, and transcribing playbill records.
Transcribe helps users hand-key historic Cherokee-language documents. Built on Iowa University’s Scribe plugin for Omeka, Transcribe includes a number of plugins for authentication and paginated record displays.
Designed in response to media documentation of student activism in New Haven, Yale Voices offers Yale community members a safe place for archiving topical media. Users can share their materials with community members, but records are shielded from non-university members by Yale’s central CAS system.
