A smartphone app for understanding copyright on research data

11 Mar 2015

I very much enjoyed the discussion at yesterday's meeting.  In case you have an interest, the attached article describes a smartphone app (built by Richard Hosking, my PhD student) that reasons over copyright affordances and responsibilities that are attached to data files you might want to use or even combine.

(it uses the Carneades defeasible reasoner at the backend, from the legal-computation community)

    Thank you, Mark. This too is very interesting and a phone app like this is
    something in which I know RDA would be interested. This is something else
    the IG should consider and perhaps you would be interested in forming a WG
    on it.
    More later,
