“From Semantic metadata to an ontology-based legal decision support system for data sharing”

Abstract: With the increasing availability of open datasets, data sharing becomes an evidence, in particular in the research domain. The FAIR principles have provided some guidelines to facilitate data sharing. They strongly recommend the use of semantic, machine processable and standard metatada. Nevertheless, these metadata are not sufficient to check if the data sharing is compatible with data sharing regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other regulations about AI-based data analysis, or even the anticipation of inappropriate reuses of data. In the first part of my talk I will illustrate the advantages and limitations of semantic metadata. Then I will expose a research line based on collaborations with lawyers to design a rule-based and ontology-based support system that could guide data producers in their decision to share data according tho regulations and preferences.

Series Description

The IAOA [2] has created ESAO [1], a new educational effort directed towards topics of Applied Ontology, primarily established basics and foundations.

The series is inspired by the Interdisciplinary Schools on Applied Ontology (ISAO) [3] (whose next edition will be held in 2023). ESAO is complementary in format and its overall approach. The goal is to provide a combination of an archive of educational material (e.g., short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.
