Applied to information, those signals will be the most frequent words found. Many 'one world' makes a tag cloud. To understand something, we use a combination of signals: a sentence made of several verbs, nouns, adjectives...The meaning will augment as more words are combined together."

We have algorithms to produce expression clouds from a set of highly relevant conversations taking place in social media communities.
