Call for Participation in Civic Technology Community Group

The Civic Technology Community Group has been launched:

Artificial intelligence is already having a big impact across domains, including government services. Users will soon be able to ask natural-language questions and engage in multimodal dialogues about large-scale public-sector financial, accounting, and budgetary data while receiving responses which include language, mathematics, charts, diagrams, figures, and graphs.

This Community Group will bring together those interested in civic technology, open government, and artificial intelligence to share and discuss how to ensure that the Web is well-suited for these applications.

Initial topics of interest may include chatbot interoperability, responsive design (e.g., to handle dynamic responses from chatbots), notification models (e.g., when there are updates to backing data), the sharing of chatbot responses on the Web, and the role of linked data in connecting artificial intelligence to the Web.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2023-04-04 by Adam Sobieski. The following people supported its creation: Adam Sobieski, Kim Duffy, Daniel Hern├índez, Tibor Katelbach, Ravinder Singh, Eric Sembrat. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
