Constructing a crowdsourced linked open knowledge base of Chinese history

Sturgeon, Donald (2021) 'Constructing a crowdsourced linked open knowledge base of Chinese history.', 2021 Pacific Neighborhood Consortium Annual Conference and Joint Meetings (PNC) Taipei, Taiwan, 28-30 Sept 2021.


This paper introduces a crowdsourced approach to knowledge base construction for historical data based upon annotation of historical source materials. Building on an existing digital library of premodern Chinese texts and adapting techniques from other annotation and knowledge base projects, this lays the groundwork for a scalable, sustainable, linked open repository of data covering around 3000 years of recorded Chinese history.
