Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities - Release of the MySQL-based implementation of the CTS protocol
In a project called "A Library of a Billion Words", we needed an implementation of the CTS-protocol that is capable of handling a text collection containing at least 1 billion words. Because the existing solutions did not work for this scale or were still in development I started a reimplementation of the CTS protocol using methods that MySQL provides. Last year we published a paper that introduced a prototype with the core functionalities but without being compliant with the specifications of CTS.
The purpose of this talk is to describe and evaluate the MySQL based implementation now that it is fulfilling the specifications version 5.0 and mark it as finished and ready to use.
Further information, online instances of CTS for all described datasets and binaries can be accessed via the projects web-site (www.urncts.de).
This time we meet in the library of the Seminar für Deutsche Philologie, Jacob-Grimm-Haus, Käte-Hamburger-Weg 3, 37073 Göttingen. We´re looking forward to the talk and discussions.
