Using the Bible Knowedgebase for Information Integration

Presented March 26 at BibleTech:2011

In 2009 I reported at BibleTech on the Bible Knowledgebase (BK), a machine-readable collection of semantically-organized data about people, places, and things in the Bible. This talk will describe how the BK now functions as an essential information resource for Logos, tying together information across the software. In addition, I'll discuss the continued work on the data over the last two years, including building a database of Biblical Events, adding unnamed entities to the database, and coordinating information about these entities with the Logos Controlled Vocabulary. I'll also present prototypes for visualizing BK data to enhance discovery and exploration in the Biblical text.
