    Featured Project: JudaicaLink

    Wed, Mar 1, 2017

    JudaicaLink is a project of our research group that has been established in 2013. The original goal was the creation of data representation from online encyclopediae.

    Since the publication of the first data versions of encyclopediae, the project had been quite dormant. Now, in the context of our FID Judaica project, JudaicaLink got a new mission statement to create a rich knowledge graph for the domain of Jewish studies.

    For starters, the whole technical setup has been changed to become more stable and better manageable. Furthermore, the project moved to a new and more powerful server.
