What it does
The system monitors semantic changes in a text stream, in this case in the Twitter feeds of several US Presidential candidates. The application displays anomaly scores in the stream calculated by the HTM, giving the user an indication of unusual topic changes detected in the stream. The user can then inspect the actual text in the stream using the UI to investigate the anomalies found.
