You can click on each node, they are links!

This is an automatically generated graph containing all pages on my websites, along with the connections calculated using sentence embeddings. If you're interested, you can read the source code.

How is this thing generated?

Explained non-technically

  1. Using an AI-esque tool, I'm generating a mathematical representation of what each page on my site contains, in terms of contents
  2. I'm laying out each page on a graph, so that it is placed close to pages with similar contents and far away from pages with different contents. E.x. programming-related stuff will be grouped together, far away from something travel-related.
  3. I'm drawing links between pages which are the closest. This also generates the "related posts" section at the bottom of each page. The drawn links only serve aesthetic purposes.

The gory technical details

  1. All of the posts are fed through an embeddings generator, I'm using the Sentence Transformers Python library.
  2. The embeddings are passed to UMAP, a dimensionality reduction algorithm, which takes in multi-dimensional embeddings and projects it down to a 2D representation, which can be drawn as a graph. The projection is done so that the high-level "structure" of the data is preserved (at least that's what the UMAP paper states, I'm not data scientist to argue with the experts).
  3. I'm connecting each post with its top 2 nearest posts (using more clutters up the map).
  4. graphviz renders the graph and outputs it as an SVG file.

A much better description on Simon Willison's blog.

Future plans

  1. Make this thing look more "map-alike", whatever that might mean.
  2. Experiment with text clusterisation & dimensionality reduction algorithms, such as:
    • tSNE
    • K-means clustering
    • UMAP
    • Latent Dirichlet allocation
    • DBSCAN
  3. Add #tags. Automatically assign posts to categories with cosine distances.
  4. Introduce color-coding and other visual markers, allowing viewers to make sense of the data based on different metrics:
    • Post tags
    • Links to/from other posts
    • Links outside (to the netsphere)
    • Other connections generated by NLP
  5. Check out KagiSearch/vectordb
  6. Color gradients with Python
