This week’s Skype meeting with the team was dedicated to the first insights based on the data collection. The team is already making so much progress! More and more researchers are joining the team as we discover more leads that need our attention.
For example, with the data that we collect about the Annex neighborhood, we can research specific cases in wartime police records. Information about whose bike was stolen and which neighbors got into a fight will be added to our database. When it is in there, AI will make sense of it…. hopefully. I think everybody is anxiously looking forward to this part of research.
I know I should not be too enthusiastic about it, but we might be one step closer to another part of the investigation: the kopgeldbriefjes. Will we find links to some to these in the police reports? Will we be able to link names to this procedure? Now that I’m writing this I really want to start digging into these police archives!
