Abstract

Personage is an important kind of entities in study of history. Comprehensive understanding of personage biographies is beneficial for researching into historical events. This article introduces the development of a text retrieval and mining system for Taiwanese historical people - Taiwan Biographical Database (TBDB). It describes the characteristics of personages in TBDB, highlights the system architecture and preliminary achievement of TBDB, and proposes a method to recognize named entities in the personage biographies, specifically poetry societies, which achieves the recall rate 96% and the precision rate 65%. Finally, this article elaborates on the lessons learned through the creation of TBDB, and the future plans.
