One of KMi's teams has been generating live, interactive visualizations, revealing the structure of the first televised UK election debate between the three main party leaders. The Hypermedia Discourse group's Compendium and Cohere tools have been used to generate the maps, which are then open to anyone to support/challenge the leaders' claims, make new connections to other resources, or add new evidence. The maps are now being analysed to see what they reveal about the way in which the debate is conducted, with some preliminary results being published on the blog. More details and coverage from other Open University channels in the links below...
