AbstractIn order to see how political speech has changed over time in the United States, I created a data visualization project that takes speeches made by U.S. politicians and shows the usage of popular topics and the words in those topics. My project focuses solely on the 21st century and uses a flower design to represent each topic. Using transcripts of political speeches, along with natural language processing and topic modeling tools, I was able to create a visual representation of what politicians talk about in the U.S. and how those topics have changed.
