To understand the depth of the infographics in this post, you have to start by swallowing a somewhat odd concept: Jamieson has developed analytical algorithms that actually reason through space. Just like you might place a point on a 2-D or 3-D grid, Jamieson actually arranges traits of a beer--from very specific text descriptions he’s scraped from reviews, like “grapefruity” or “piney,” to very hard, scientific measurements of maltiness and bitterness--into six simultaneous dimensions. From the proximity of all these diverse data points, Jamieson can reason complex relationships of the beers based upon a multitude of interrelated criteria at once.

This is so incredibly detailed. Wow. The man is an artiste with data!!

i like it!

Truly an app that can be useful
