Linked Jazz Now Part of Semantic Lab at Pratt
Linked Jazz joins our other LOD projects under the umbrella of the Semantic Lab at Pratt. As we continue to expand the Linked Jazz semantic work in new directions, you can follow our progress at semlab.io.
Revealing the Relationships of the Jazz Community
Linked Jazz is a research project investigating the application of Linked Open Data technologies to digital cultural heritage materials. Our goals are:
- To uncover meaningful connections between documents and data related to the personal and professional lives of jazz artists, and
- To develop broadly applicable tools and methods for working with Linked Open Data.
The project draws on jazz history materials in digital format to expose relationships between musicians and reveal their community network. New modes of connecting cultural data have the potential to open up new and unprecedented avenues of research and community engagement.
