Accomplishment: Built out model for configurable, extensible rules engine for disambiguation engine
Developed and implemented a model for abstract configurable rules for the Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS). This model has application to other projects as well. Presented this model to Project Bamboo workshop as a design pattern for allowing humanist researchers to control and configure reusable services.
Need to move from a proof of concept to a set of reusable services. Establishes model for building useful services in support of humanities research, following strategic model for campus IT. Demonstrates useful IT service for core use-case in humanities research.
Direct impact on campus partners and academic project partners at various universities. Indirect impact on project bamboo partners.
Aligns to campus strategic direction to provide support for research and teaching, using reusable web-services on common service platforms.
