The aim of Muninn is to take archives of the first world war, extract the written data using massive amounts of computing power and turn the resulting information into semi-structured databases for further research. I'd like to swap ideas with a few of you on: * Using some of the current tools to ensure the link-ability of some of the archival sources used. * How do we make Dublin Core work properly for complex documents? * Neat strategies to separate layers of evidence from belief as well as really novel data-quality problems. * Some tags that we use in production to speed up reasoning, encode ambiguity and some common-sense linkages.
