Correlation Explanation Preview
A “real” blog update will be some time coming. In the meantime, there are some pretty pictures from preliminary results if you click around here.
The picture below is a cool result where our method took results from survey questions (like “Are you the life of the party?”) and automatically discovered that there should be five traits that explain the correlations between how people answered questions. It turns out that the result perfectly matched the “big 5” personality traits. We also got cool (preliminary) results using data from DNA, gene expression, and human language.
