LEARN MORE | "Concept Cloud" is now "Galaxy"
Concept Cloud is now Galaxy. While the feature has not changed, all references to it will reflect its new name and icon.
Traditional word clouds
A word cloud is a two-dimensional visualization of text data, where the size of each word it contains indicates its frequency in the dataset. Words are placed next to each other as it is generated for aesthetic, rather than functional, effect.
Why Galaxy is different
The Galaxy feature provides much more than a traditional word cloud. It’s comprised of 150 dimensions of associations between concepts. Word cloud frequency can mislead, as there are words which are common in basic expression that don’t actually confer analytic value. Instead, Galaxy prioritizes the concepts that are more prevalent in your data set than would be expected to appear in the underlying language. Each concept is alongside its most closely associated concepts, and seven of the largest clusters of conversation are highlighted in different colors for at-a-glance insight.
Try it: click and drag any concept, and as you move your cursor, the Galaxy spins to help you visualize its 150 dimensions. Letting go of the concept flattens the view as if it were under a pane of glass, so you can perform quadrant analysis in two dimensions.
LEARN MORE | "Compare Concepts" is now "Volume"
Volume, formerly known as Compare Concepts, identifies the relative volume of individual concepts contained in the project dataset, with and without breakdowns by metadata field. The feature has been renamed to reflect its core analyses and value.
The feature name change (and updated icon) is now reflected in the navigation menu:
LEARN MORE | "Score Drivers" is now "Drivers"
While the feature has not changed, all references to it will reflect its new name. There is no change to the get concept/score_driver API endpoint.
LEARN MORE | "Compare Concepts" is now "Volume"
Account selection on the Projects List page is retained when refreshing the page, after deleting a project, or clicking the “Return to projects list” link.
LEARN MORE | Filter Pane: All filter options are collapsed by default
Filter options are now collapsed by default in the filter panel, to make it easier to hone in on a desired filter option. Once a filter option is in use, it will remain expanded to provide visual confirmation of the current filter’s state.
With no filter applied
With “Overall score” filter applied
LEARN MORE | Concept Details Pane: When the concept search term changes, scroll position is reset
When the concept search term changes, the scroll position is reset to the top of the Top Related Concepts and Matching Documents sections.
LEARN MORE | Concept Details Pane: Delete a saved concept
You can now delete a saved concept through the Concept Detail Pane in any Daylight feature.
LEARN MORE | Concept Details Pane: Downloading matching documents includes each document's sentiment
Each document’s sentiment (Positive, Negative, or Neutral) is now provided when downloading matching documents from the Concept Detail pane.
LEARN MORE | Volume and Sentiment: Concept lists show sortable fields and current sort order
The Volume and Sentiment concept lists now designate any column that is sortable with a double grayed-out arrow. The current sort order is shown via an up (ascending) or down (descending) arrow. To change the sort order, simply click on one of the sortable column’s headers.
LEARN MORE | Drivers: Scatterplot y-axis is now Average Score
The Drivers feature in Daylight understands words and phrases and correlates them to scores, so teams can quickly implement fixes and improvements. Now, the y-axis of the scatterplot provides a clearer picture of what’s happening: concepts are plotted at their individual average scores, versus the dashed line representing the overall average score of the dataset.
Concepts with a higher average score than the overall average score are in blue. Concepts with a lower average score than the overall average score are in red. Selecting or hovering over a concept provides an updated tooltip, displaying the concept’s difference from the overall average score.
LEARN MORE | Drivers: Feature configuration now located in the left pane
To provide greater focus on the scatterplot visualization, the Drivers feature configuration options are now located in the left pane below the Filter options.
LEARN MORE | New version of the API client is released to PyPI
Please use the command pip install luminoso-api to access the latest version. The command from luminoso_api import LuminosoClient will provide the v5 API by default. You can still explicitly request the client for either API version using from luminoso_api.v4_client import LuminosoClient or from luminoso_api.v5_client import LuminosoClient. The new version will automatically pull forward your old API tokens when connecting to daylight.luminoso.com.
LEARN MORE | Drivers: Search-as-you-type now properly filters results
String fields with many values are displayed as search-as-you-type filters. In the example below, typing “I” within the Brew Name field brings up the desired value “IPA”. Clicking on that “IPA” value will now properly filter the Drivers results, rather than displaying an error.
