The National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities announced seven recipients of Digital Implementation Grants yesterday, including Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS).
Berkeley Prosopography Services, led by Laurie Pearce and Niek Veldhuis, was originally developed as part of a 2009 NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant. Patrick Schmitz, from Research IT, was responsible for the architecture and early development work. Berkeley Prosopography Services is notable for its corpus-agnostic architecture that ensures reusability of technical components to solve comparable problems across corpora, its modeling of probabilistic assertions for disambiguation, and its workspace environments that support and encourage individual and collaborative exploration, and authority tracking.
