As such he presents eFLINT, a language that can be used to formalize norms from a large variety of sources. The resulting specifications are executable and supports automatic case assessment, i.e. does this actor adhere to the established norms?
Meanwhile, Marineterrein in Amsterdam buzzing with sensors collecting all sorts of data. Marineterrein is a ‘Living Lab’, testing ideas that contribute to a sustainable, future proof city. Tom van Arman works here and would love to see an ‘app store for data sets’. He teamed up with AMdEX in a usecase, to see how the collected data could be made accessible to third parties, such as businesses, artists, local authorities, journalists and residents. In his presentation (pdf), he gives very tangible and compelling examples of what how AMdEX could make a difference.
Water safety through data
One of the organisations who collect data at Marineterrein, is KWR who are researching water safety. Marineterrein is a popular open water swimming site in the city. KWR checks the water for traces of e-coli bacteria. “With a real-time flow of data in place, KWR could produce float lines with led lights in the swimming area. If the water is safe, they’d be blue. Do the sensors identify a peak in e-coli, then the floaties could turn red”, explains Tom.
Marineterrein sets a few hands-on criteria for usage of its collected data. “These conditions depend on the data they’re interested in. If a journalist applies for data to publish about those, they’d need to be a member of our Marineterrein community, as well as be a subscriber to AMdEX. Artists may be interested in sound data that Sensemakers has collected. If they want to use those sounds, they should comply with crediting the collectors for their work. When AMdEX has verified the application to these conditions, they supply a link to the requested data.”
