MERIT – Machine-based Extraction of Relations in Text

evernote_atlasMERIT is a collaborative project with Antal van den Bosch, Airborne Museum ‚Hartenstein‘ and Bevrijdingsmuseum Groesbeek to apply Natural Language Processing methods for the analysis of historical primary sources of the end of the Second World War. MERIT is driven by 1) the idea to use software to semi-automatically aggregate sources for multi-perspective analysis of particular events. 2) we will apply methods developed in computational folklore research to identify and compare narrative building blocks in a large number of texts.
