Description

The BiographySampo data was created by extracting knowledge from the underlying biographical texts, some \num{13 100} short biographies published by the Finnish Literature Society, using language technology. After this, the data was enriched by linking it to several external biographical databases, Wikidata, collection databases of memory organizations, semantic web data services etc.

The core data in BiographySampo comes from biographical databases created in projects carried out by the Biographical Centre of the Finnish Literature Society in co-operation with several learned societies: the Finnish Historical Society, The Finnish Economic History Association, and the Finnish Society of Church History.
