End of year roundup

30 Dec

Its been a busy 2010 for the MusicNet project and we’ve made great progress. Our Alignment Tool is now becoming more mature and the latest code is showing significant increases in task speed, making the workflow much more efficient. We expect to be able to release Beta 2 in the new year, so keep checking back for more details.

Alignment Progress (Work Package 4)

The performance and usability improvements to our Alignment Tool (Work Package 2) have had a dramatic effect on our overall alignment progress. We are now at 56% complete, which places us firmly on target to complete the entire dataset before the proposed deadline (end of March 2011).

Codex/User Portal (Work Package 6.2)

Work has also begun on the MusicNet Codex, which aims to be a single source of search for Musicologists to find information and links into our datapartners catalogs. Although this is in the very early beta stages, it is functional and we are adding more composers as and when they are aligned.

Visit the beta of the MusicNet Codex:

The Codex publicly demonstrates for the first time the outputs of the Alignment Tool and shows the integration with the LinkedBrainz project (read about our meetup with the LinkedBrainz project).

Please feel free to leave any feedback on the Codex in the comments.

Linked Data (Work Package 5)

Work is underway to convert the output of the Alignment Tool into usable Linked Data. In the New Year we plan to release our proposed URI Scheme (Work Package 3) and also expose an early version of our data/alignment as Linked Data.
