3:30pm Workshop - Semantic value and Discovery - OB Challenges (3)
Location: Main Room
Chair: Bert Jehoul

4. Open Discovery

Key challenge: How to discover people, competencies, resources, service providers, etc. based on the data generated through Open Recognition while preserving the anonymity?

Statement: Search of talents is mainly confined within silos where participants are not in control of their data. Open Discovery means that it is possible to expose one’s data publicly and anonymously, independently from service providers, so that a variety of services, including services unknown to the data owner, can search the data to provide services.

 8. Semantic value

Key challenge: How can we write criteria that contain semantic information, so they can be processed by computers to provide meaningful information to humans?

Statement: Today, the criteria field in Open Badges is simple text and is created by the issuer. The semantic value is nil.

Open Recognition Networks — OB Challenges (4)
Location: Breakout Session Room
Key challenge: how to make learners, individuals and citizens the builders of Open Recognition Networks? Statement: Current recognition systems are structured around the individual. In contrast, Open Recognition Networks are structured around a shared community space and common context of goals and badges, where social understanding can develop and grow. Open Recognition Networks can be a place where badges and endorsements are created and understood. They can serve as an interface between a community and web services that server that community. Questions: How do people construct their identity in relation to others in a community? How can we build meaningful visual representations from Open Badges, Open Endorsements and other verifiable claims that are more meaningful because they exist in a community? How can these representations enable reflection and action? How do they contribute to one’s identity construction? How do they facilitate the emergence of bottom-up recognition...
