Let’s use this topic to provide feedback and add any comments or thoughts to the summary we at OKFN made of the workshop with Latin American communities at RightsCon Costa Rica.
- Inclusive Language – Leave behind legal jargon (or make an effort to translate it into simpler and more inclusive words that could be understood by everyone everywhere).
- Broader Agreement – The consensus around the Open Definition should be broader, even if the definition itself doesn’t change that much.
- Ethics / Use Purpose – There’s a tension between protecting the commons without restricting them. Participants really stressed the meaning of “application to any purpose”
- AI – There’s a big concern with artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. While machine readability needs to be guaranteed, there is also a need to better define what is meant by “computer”, and if there are cases in which this requirement might not be valid.
- Clarification – Deepen the focus on attribution, remuneration, and non-discrimination, assessing each word’s meaning for the actual times, diverse cultures and languages.
