PID Kernel Information WG

Group details

TAB Liaison: 
Larry Lannom
WGs Producing deliverables (~6-12 months after RDA endorsement)
 

As has been discussed in several awareness raising sessions with the RDA community at RDA Plenaries 7 and 8 in special sessions carried out in the Data Fabric IG and at two extracurricular RDA events, there is a gap to realization of the power of the combined RDA Recommendations (PID Information Types Recommendation and Data Type Registry Recommendation). This gap, described in more detail below, is in coming to consensus around what makes up PID Kernel Information. By convening interested parties in the RDA community to define PID Kernel Information, and having a PID Kernel Information Recommendation a complementary recommendation in the RDA recommendation suite will allow adopters of the core RDA recommendations (PIT Data Types and Data Type Registry) to take full advantage of the unique power that these recommendations have when combined.

This WG aims to converge through a series of discussions and a narrowing process on the smallest number possible of versions (or profiles) of PID Kernel Information (1 is ideal but not likely).  These versions/profiles will be the primary output of the WG. 

The group has most recently started to assemble a coherent set of guiding principles that further define the purpose and key requirements underlying the whole concept of PID Kernel Information. Any profiles must adhere to these principles. They also shape the possible infrastructure that can support Kernel Information and facilitate user interaction, filtering, decision-making and other actions.

Call on January 18, 13:00 UTC

Dear all,
as discussed at our last call, we will have our next regular call
tomorrow at 13:00 UTC. Our intention was to use this to discuss a first
outline of a recommendation. Unfortunately, I have multiple successive
meetings tomorrow and resolving all scheduling conflicts has proven
impossible so I will not be able to attend tomorrow's call.
Beth, are you available tomorrow and can you or anyone else take over?
Otherwise I'd suggest to cancel the call.
I also know that I still have some action items regarding the principles

Next Kernel Information VC: January 4, 2018, 12:00 UTC

Dear all,
we will meet again on Thursday, January 4, 2018, 12:00 UTC.
Call details to follow (I'm assuming we can use the IU Zoom again?).
Please also think about whether we can use that timeslot for a 2-weekly
regular call until P11. We should discuss and decide at the call.
Best, Tobias

Fwd: Form submission from: 11th Plenary Group Session Application Form

Dear all,
I have just handed in the session proposal for the PID Kernel
Information meeting at P11, based on the Google docs draft. Thanks to
those who provided comments and additions to the draft. We can figure
out the details of the presentations etc. in the weeks before the plenary.
Best, Tobias

Kernel Information P11 session proposal

Hi,
I've updated the session proposal document according to what we
discussed; the focus is on presenting our recommendations and getting
feedback, less on discussing new contents (with the exception of the
"next steps" point).
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BfrsbsNUX4SK8GYIvcx2sf-MgfeVkqsRGty8...
So now we know what we are up to. Good start for 2018 I'd say. :-)
Unless I see any changes, I will submit this end of the week.

Re: [pid-kernel-info-wg] An initial needs assessment for the PID Kernel

mark,
thanks for the thinking through that you've done. Your analysis raises numerous critical questions and offers an important perspective. One point of clarification at fundamental level:
Your treatise equates a PID to a Boundary Object (as in, a PID "IS A" Boundary Object). I'd equate a Boundary Object to a Data Object (as defined in the Khan data object architecture). In latter case, the PID names a BO or DO but is not itself a BO or DO.
