Hi Manu,

The new version looks much better IMHO.

I've been doing research into AI technologies. I've found a distinction
between specialised AI and general purpose AI; which therefore leads me to
simplify the considerations by simply framing available services as 'apps'.

It's most likely AI will continue to be produced in a modular fashion,
where particular services perform particular tasks. In-So-Doing, a
consideration in how a multitude of AI Bots may be interoperable or
accumulatively used for humans is amongst my considerations.

It is likely that the multitude of these services have enterprise
requirements. Therefore the cost of deployment in a fully decentralised
manner (like desktop computers) is unlikely to be practical; yet, those
sharing data with AI services most likely do not want their data used for
Generalised AI purposes.

Now Therefore;

I was unsure as to whether we've addressed these sorts of use-cases. I
consider the unique nature of Linked-Data for application upon these sorts
of services; and In this way,

The 'issuer' may be the human (perhaps via delegation) approving data to be
used for a specified purpose (with specified constraints) by a service;
where it seems likely that a marketplace of services are becoming available.

Stakeholders are seemingly interested in defining solutions for this

Hi all,

Based on Wendy's feedback since W3C TPAC 2016:


A new version of the Verifiable Claims Charter Proposal for W3M has been
prepared with the following changes:

* The Problem Statement and Goals section has been moved into to a
  Charter Motivations document.
* The dates have been adjusted to provide a less aggressive timeline to
  get to CR.
* The chairs and staff contact participation have been marked "TBD".
* A diff-marked version based on the previous charter approved by the
  Verifiable Claims Task Force has been generated.

The new charter can be viewed here:


A diff-marked copy is here:


W3M-specific landing page for next Wednesday's meeting is here:


Please let me know if there are any concerns or issues with the prepared
