 1/ Introducing the #Data With Direction Specification (#DWDS) v0.9.0. 

 The definitive @Xalgorithms resource. 

 #DataWithDirection #DWD #RulesasData #RaD #InternetofRules #IoR 

 https://xalgorithms.org/white-paper 

 --- 

 2/ DWDS #RuleSchema is a concise #data model at the core of the Data With Direction specification. #DWDS  

 DWDS #RuleMaker, #RuleTaker and #RuleReserve are the three functional parts of a data-processing pipeline for sifting out IS + RULE --> OUGHT relations.  

 https://doi.org/10.1109/TVCG.2016.2603178 

 --- 

 3/ @Xalgorithms Alliance participants are creating three reference implementations (developer / operator / modeller) on distinct platforms. 

 --- 

 4/ The world lacked a scalable and efficient way to communicate obligation, permission or encouragement from 'rule-makers' (including you) to 'rule-takers' (including you). 

 --- 

 5/ We noticed that data expressing MUST, MAY and SHOULD, their various negatives and synonyms, comprise a class of data with intrinsic directionality. These terms even have their own standards: 

 https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp14  

 https://www.iso.org/sites/directives/current/part2/index.xhtml#_idTextAnchor078  

 So we optimized a way for data-with-direction to be discovered and transmitted over the Internet in a form directly usable by non-specialized humans and machines, for any purpose, in any language. #DWDS 

 --- 

 6/ #DWDS enables a wide diversity of potential use cases. Early collaborations involve cross-border trade, @Xalgo4Trade, monetary system integrity (#ERA), and dynamic indexed pricing, etc. All use cases and functional components together constitute an emergent #InternetofRules -- a name proposed by @jrpotvin in 2016 https://vimeo.com/173809271
