ShiCo – Exploring Shifting Concepts Through Time in Digitized Newspapers.

ShiCo is a tool for visualizing semantic shifts in certain concepts over an extended period of time. “Concept” here means a set of terms which are semantically related to a central subject term. ShiCo uses a set of semantic models (word2vec) spanning a number of years to explore how concepts change over time – words related to a given concept at time t=0 may differ from the words related to the same concept at time t=n.
