Any news and updates of general interest to CTWG members
Neil Thomson has a background in business intelligence and analytics market. At ToIP he has been involved with the Inputs and Semantics WG (soon to become the Data Representation or Data Modeling WG). He notes that terminology is a constant battle in these areas.
He noted that there is a lot of talk about data containers, but most of the world is dealing with streaming data where data is "in a pipe".
ACTION: Drummond Reedto work withNicky Hickmanon an outreach message for this coming Wednesday's All-Member Meeting for a Mental Models Task Force to focus on leveraging mental models within and outside ToIP.
Rieks Joosten is looking at changing the definitions of some of the CTWG terms that will result in the need to update the tool. He hopes to get those revisions sorted out this week.
Rieks said that the documentation of the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 is coming along.
One open issue is how the glossary generator can be configured to produce different human-readable glossary documents. Rieks said that once we have a way of doing that, then we can not only generate different representations of a glossary, but also be able to produce dictionaries, which can present multiple definitions of the same term.
ACTION: Rieks Joosten to update Sid Haniff with any revisions to the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 documentation that would affect development.
Drummond brought up the pending "customers" of the Terminology Toolbox 2.0, specifically the ACDC glossary and the ToIP Technology Architecture Specification glossary.
Neil Thomson discussed the need to be able to see examples of how a term is used.
Rieks shared screenshot #1 (below) to show examples of how a Markdown document can be marked up to include links to definitions inline—and soon including pop-ups.
Neil and Drummond agreed that the Technology Architecture Task Force will work closely with the CTWG and the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 team to ensure that the glossary is a full test of the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 team.
We also discussed how the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 could be used by other orgs like the Decentralized Identity Foundation. Rieks noted that it would be ideal if folks from DIF would like to contribute new tools to the Toolbox.
We agreed that the highest priority for the Terminology Toolbox 2.0 is to convert terms wikis into human-readable glossaries.
Sid noted that currently several of the terms wikis are using slightly different formats in their terms wiki pages (e.g., different headings).
Rieks hoped that the tool framework could add new scraping tools.
The second priority is to create different forms of human-readable
The third priority is the "term-ref resolution tool" (TRRT). Rieks showed an example of how the TRRT works.
