Projects

ADAPT Centre

Overview: We currently work on two closely-related projects. The first is the GDPR Project, and involves its regulatory compliance, documentation, modelling, and analyses. The second is the Privacy Project, and deals with privacy in general, and therefore extends to privacy policies. We also work on the Ethics side of things, with our work on the Ethics Canvas.

GDPR

project page

Our work involves analysing the GDPR to create a Consent & Data Management Model (CDMM). Our goal is to enable a semantic analysis and representatino of the GDPR, and to provide the mechanism for its documentation towards regulatory compliance.

Privacy Policy Metadata

project page

The work with privacy is closely aligned with the GDPR project given the similarity in domains and requirements of both approaches. We mainly focus on privacy related representation of metadata and use-cases.
