Integrating the Management of Personal Data Protection and Open Science with Research Ethics
Dave Lewis | Joss Moorkens | Kaniz Fatema
Proceedings of the First ACL Workshop on Ethics in Natural Language Processing

We examine the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the push from research funders to provide open access research data on the current practices in Language Technology Research. We analyse the challenges that arise and the opportunities to address many of them through the use of existing open data practices. We discuss the impact of this also on current practice in research ethics.

Open Data Vocabularies for Assigning Usage Rights to Data Resources from Translation Projects
David Lewis | Kaniz Fatema | Alfredo Maldonado | Brian Walshe | Arturo Calvo
Proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'16)

An assessment of the intellectual property requirements for data used in machine-aided translation is provided based on a recent EC-funded legal review. This is compared against the capabilities offered by current linked open data standards from the W3C for publishing and sharing translation memories from translation projects, and proposals for adequately addressing the intellectual property needs of stakeholders in translation projects using open data vocabularies are suggested.
