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.
