Polis Opinion Matrix
- comments * participants = a sparse matrix of votes
- Consider an excel table
- The resulting sparse matrix, and metadata, are available in the export
- The matrix is said to be sparse because it will (very likely) not be complete — ie., most participants will not vote on most comments.
- 👾 Algorithms and 🔬 Analysis are run on the matrix
- There is no natural language processing involved in the clustering
