First Public Working Draft: Accessible Name and Description Computation 1.2

11 July 2019 | Archive

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Accessible Name and Description Computation 1.2. This document describes how user agents determine the names and descriptions of accessible objects from web content languages. This information is in turn exposed through accessibility APIs so that assistive technologies can identify these objects and present their names or descriptions to users. Documenting the algorithm through which names and descriptions are to be determined promotes interoperable exposure of these properties among different accessibility APIs and helps to ensure that this information appears in a manner consistent with author intent.

Upcoming: W3C Workshop on Data Models for Transportation

11 June 2019 | Archive

W3C Data Models for Transportation Workshop page banner imageW3C announced today a Workshop on Data Models for Transportation, 12-13 September 2019, in Palo Alto, CA, USA. The event is hosted by Uber.

The primary goal of the workshop is to bring together data architects, product owners/managers, business development, corporate strategy and innovation from the various industries and sectors that will be the future of transportation.

Expected topics of discussion include:

  • Profiles, an ontology for drivers, passengers, delivery recipients.
  • Vehicle data – on-board (VSS) and in-cloud ontology (VSSo)
  • Trip information – handling addition modes of transportation besides vehicle eg rail, urban air mobility, plane and potentially for data collected while traversing the route, observations from cameras and sensors.
  • Vehicle service ledger representing repairs, replacement and aftermarket parts, tires, oil changes and other maintenance
  • Fueling and charging records to track a vehicles’ efficiency
  • Accessibility — Identifying accessibility-related considerations for ontologies, including for driver and passenger profiles, and vehicle data; as well as user interface aspects of consent and charging records; also how accessibility intersects with privacy or other considerations.
  • Privacy & consent – data considerations for the capture and representation of usage limits and consent grants.
  • metadata – A session on standards for dataset modeling, provenance, and policies for data access. relevant existing or proposed ontologies (sampling methodology, consent capture and accompanying policy language representation)
  • Anonymization and broader distribution of information for Federated Learning to improve AI behind autonomous vehicle efforts and other research
  • Business cases and need for open, inter-operable standards in transportation space

For more information on the workshop, please see the workshop details and submission instructions. Expressions of interest and position statements are due by 12 July 2019.
