The field of machine learning has produced many techniques for performing data analysis, but researchers outside the field face substantial challenges applying them to their data. Divvy is an application for applying unsupervised machine learning techniques (clustering and dimensionality reduction) to the data analysis process. Divvy provides a novel UI that allows researchers to tighten the action-perception loop of changing algorithm parameters and seeing a visualization of the result. Machine learning researchers can use Divvy to publish easy to use reference implementations of their algorithms, which helps the machine learning field have a greater impact on research practices elsewhere.
