Constructing a crowdsourced linked open knowledge base of Chinese history

Paper presented at Pacific Neighborhood Consortium Conference 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.
