Web Standards to Enable an Accessible and Inclusive Internet of Things (IoT)

Web Standards to Enable an Accessible and Inclusive Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to have an unprecedented impact on our daily lives. In particular, “smart environments” will change how we interact with our surrounding and with each other, including at home, in public spaces, and at the work place. This provides an opportunity to ensure equal access for people with disabilities. For example, operating doors, windows, and physical objects through voice makes such environments more accessible to people with physical disabilities and inclusive to many more. Yet there are still many challenges to address, without which the Internet of Things (IoT) threatens to be more of a disabler than an enabler. In particular, the current lack of interoperability makes it hard for assistive technologies to easily tap into IoT systems. Web standards could extend the open web platform to resolve many of these issues, much as it did on the traditional internet. This Web of Things (WoT) provides a robust application layer for innovation to thrive on the underlying Internet of Things (IoT).

Formalizing (web) standards: an application of test and proof

Formalizing (web) standards: an application of test and proof

While our formalization tries to stay as close as possible to the description in the standard, it is not obvious that it complies to it. To show this compliance, we first selected all relevant test cases from the official DOM compliance test suite [12], i. e., the test suite used by web browser vendors to show that their DOM imple- mentation complies to the standard. These test cases are written in JavaScript, which is embedded into the DOM document under test. We then automatically translated these tests into higher-order logic (HOL) to symbolically execute (the test cases can be “evaluated” by Isabelle’s simplifier using a set of simplifier rules optimized for code generation) them on our model of the DOM. For example, consider the following test case (the left-hand site shows the official specifi- cation in JavaScript, the right-hand site our formalization in Isabelle/HOL):

Advertisers want to engage with viewers who are engaged with content, not with users who may have left a web page open accidentally. Each site should have a policy and technical methodology to determine which traffic is generated by real humans. The site methodology should cover how they determine suspect fraudulent traffic, and then flag, investigate and remove it.

Work-in-Progress: Leveraging Cloud Computing and Web Standards to Support Learning Objectives in Multiple Classrooms

Work-in-Progress: Leveraging Cloud Computing and Web Standards to Support Learning Objectives in Multiple Classrooms

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Cloud Computing is, “a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources.” These resources are designed to be managed quickly and easily with minimal effort by either the provider or by the user. Such an approach to computing is broadly of interest, but while the potential application in education is exciting, it does provide some cause for concern. If change is implemented improperly, the impact on learning could be catastrophic. At the same time, if these technologies are not actively studied, the opportunities that they can afford can also be missed, and that too can be catastrophic given significant needs in workforce development for the new knowledge economy.

Joint Industry Committee for Web Standards JICWEBS DTSG. UK Good Practice Principles for the Trading of Digital Display Advertising

The UK 1 Good Practice Principles (‘the Principles’) have been drafted by a cross- industry group called the Digital Trading Standards Group (DTSG) 2 for review and adoption by www.jicwebs.org. The intention of the Principles is to significantly reduce the risk of the misplacement of display advertising on digital media properties, uphold brand safety and protect the integrity of digital advertising. The work of the DTSG also reflects a common goal: that digital display advertising should not support inappropriate or illegal content or services.

A Corpus Representation Format for Linguistic Web Services: The D-SPIN Text Corpus Format and its Relationship with ISO Standards

A Corpus Representation Format for Linguistic Web Services: The D-SPIN Text Corpus Format and its Relationship with ISO Standards

In the framework of the preparation of linguistic web services for corpus processing, the need for a representation format was felt, which supports interoperability between different web services in a corpus processing pipeline, but also provides a well-defined interface to both, legacy tools and their data formats and upcoming international standards. We present the D-SPIN text corpus format, TCF, which was designed for this purpose. It is a stand-off XML format, inspired by the philosophy of the emerging standards LAF (Linguistic Annotation Framework) and its “instances” MAF for morpho-syntactic annotation and SynAF for syntactic annotation. Tools for the exchange with existing (best practice) formats are available, and a converter from MAF to TCF is being tested in spring 2010. We describe the usage scenario where TCF is embedded and the properties and architecture of TCF. We also give examples of TCF encoded data and describe the aspects of syntactic and semantic interoperability already addressed.

English Language Standards. English Language Standards

The Standards set requirements not only for English language arts (ELA) but also for literacy in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects. Just as students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, so too must the Standards specify the literacy skills and understandings required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines. Literacy standards for grade 6 and above are predicated on teachers of ELA, history/social studies, science, and technical subjects using their content area expertise to help students meet the particular challenges of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language in their respective fields. It is important to note that the 6–12 literacy standards in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects are not meant to replace content standards in those areas but rather to supplement them. States may incorporate these standards into their standards for those subjects or adopt them as content area literacy standards.

As students gain this knowledge and these skills, they gain in their ability to apply the knowledge and skills in the visual arts to their widening personal worlds.

APPENDIX A STANDARDS AND STANDARDS-SETTING ORGANIZATIONS. A.1 The Importance of Standards

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), part of the U.S. Commerce Department, issues standards and guidelines for use by U.S. government departments and agencies. These standards and guidelines are issued in the form of Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). NIST develops FIPS when there are compelling federal government requirements such as for security and interoper- ability and there are no acceptable industry standards or solutions.

Development of a Web Based GIS Application for Spatial Natural Resources Information System Using Effective Open Source Software and Standards

Development of a Web Based GIS Application for Spatial Natural Resources Information System Using Effective Open Source Software and Standards

MapServer is template based. When first executed in response to a web request, it reads a configuration file (called the map file) that describes the layers and other components of the map. It then draws and saves the map. Next, it reads one or more HTML template files that are identified in the map file. Each template consists of con- ventional HTML markup tags and special MapServer substitution strings. These strings are used, for example, to specify the paths to the map image that MapServer has created, to identify which layers are to be rendered, and to specify zoom level and direction. MapServer substi- tutes current values for these strings and then sends the data stream to the web server, which then forwards it to the browser. When a requester changes any form ele- ments on the page (by changing zoom direction or zoom value, for example) and clicks the submit button, Map- Server receives a request from the web server with these new values. Then the cycle starts again. MapServer auto- matically performs several tasks when generating a map. It labels features and prevents collisions between neigh- bouring labels. It provides for the use of both bitmapped and TrueType fonts. Label sizes can be fixed or confi- gured to scale with the scale of the map. The option to not print labels for specified map scale ranges is also pro- vided. The Chameleon, a highly customizable and adapt- able environment for deploying and managing Web map- ping applications is used to design and Graphic User In- terface of WebGIS.

Standards and Regulations

Standards and Regulations

Some countries with close trade relationships to the US, e.g. Canada, Australia and Mexico are currently revising their organic legislation, and it can be assumed that NOP is taken into consideration for these revisions in order to achieve bilateral agreements in future. Although the EU Regulation and US NOP are the strongest poles to influence national standards on organic production also other countries passed already or are elaborating legislation on organic production which are not necessarily in line with the EU or US system, e.g. Japan. It is quite likely that despite the harmonization activities initiated by IFOAM, FAO and UNCTAD, trading organic products will be become even more complicate the next years

Standards for Excellence

Good teaching of mathematics is dynamic, and the Standards need to respond to developing knowledge about the field. In keeping with this, the AAMT Council, at its January 2006 meeting, decided that the Standards document should be thoroughly reviewed during 2006. A revised version will then be able to be adopted from 2007 for several years.
