Big Data and Politics: A Tool for Exploring Electoral Programs

Before an election, the citizens are flooded with information coming from media and political parties. However, access to the "raw" proposals is a tricky task, since they are drowned in heavy and scattered programs. We have used Big Data and Natural Language Processing for gathering those programs in a centralized tool. It enables to search for particular terms and to access related parts of the programs. The tool also displays some insights and statistics about word usage through parties and time.
