Big Data : digital data from analogue Bridge. Distributed, total bridge data via sites worldwide with add/read APIs
Pity one can't add pictures to comments, but maybe that's not a bad thing these days! Here's my first attempt at an infographic on the basic concept of gathering, storing and serving of the global dataset of played hands. Comments enabled. https://drive.google.com/file/d ...
An Elo Rating System for Bridge
@Ping Hu, I'm convinced by your decision to base ratings primarily on partnership results per board. Partnership ratings fit in perfectly with the partnership ethos of bridge and that the most basic, reducible unit of measurable performance is not a collection of boards (a session), but the boards ...

Is it not within the remit (i.e. responsibility) of the self-appointed global body, the WBF, to figure out with its NBOs a common, global grading sytem, with migration paths, and then help as many NBOs transition to it?

Alan, part of the global superset of bridge data would be additional automated (or auto validation of manual) data entry. The human Vugraph operator as we now it is on borrowed time - or should be - if we want to widen and deepen the data collected from played bridge hands: tourney ...

New bridge software: Complete Bridge Database
Is it possible to see a demo of this, but not on my own system? For example, a YouTube (or other) video showing all the main/unique/interesting features would be sufficient.

ELK and others like it sound absolutely great for data processing, visualisations etc. To enable that future the "bridge world" needs complete, free access to all bridge data. All bridge data generated from people actually playing, should be open source, whoever it is uploaded to initially. Those 3rd party companies ...

Hi Ambrose, certainly! If a few of us are remain interested I think we'll have organically formed a de facto initiating group and we can see how things go from there :)
Pianola and Club Websites
"Here's an example of a Pianola website: http://site.pianola.net/duplicate-lite" That URL now points to a Bridgewebs website.
Plea to BBO software developers
Looking at this from an outsider's view who plays bridge but has not developed a bridge collection system, I'd have thought a central (distrubuted) platform would be best (not necessarily BBO) which has useful APIs that can accept and output streaming bid, card & metadata from a variety of ...
