Abstract

We describe the way to get benefit from broad cultural trends through the quantitative analysis of a vast digital book collection representing the digested history of humanity. Our research work has revealed that appropriately comparing the occurrence patterns of words in some periods of human literature can help us to accurately determine the semantic similarity between these words by means of computers without requiring human intervention. Preliminary results seem to be promising.
