This visualization shows all talks and symposia as of September 18, 2023, which will be held at the European Philosophy of Science Association’s conference in Belgrade. I’ve downloaded all the abstracts, encoded them using a language model, and arranged them according to their semantic similarity, using machine learning techniques. The emerging clusters show the main thematic groupings of contributions.

While I hope you enjoy exploring the map, please don’t take it too seriously: The layout algorithm creates many distortions and makes tradeoffs that might misplace the one or other contribution.

If you find this technology interesting, feel free to drop by at our symposium, Framing Digital Philosophy of Science, on Saturday. We will discuss what this and similar techniques can do for the philosophy of science. test
