Data courtesy of Neuroflocks.com. A quick word cloud showing what the Biomedical and Life Science community in Toronto is talking about. The word cloud was generated from the titles of all the biomed events happening in Toronto this January 2016.

Word Clouds are generally considered bad practice for visualizing text data (just think about how much word length can bias its appearance in the cloud). However, they are pretty fun and they give you a quick idea of the frequency of individual words.

There is plenty of websites offering wordcloud generation for free. I generally prefer websites that offer some degree on the parameters (stop words, max number of words , shape ...). I have used this word cloud generator to generate the image above.
