W3C Web & Machine Learning Workshop page banner image W3C announced today a Workshop on Web & Machine Learning, 24-25 March 2020, in Berlin, Germany. The event is hosted by Microsoft.

The primary goal of the workshop is to bring together providers of Machine Learning tools and frameworks with Web platform practitioners to enrich the Open Web Platform with better foundations for machine learning.

The secondary goals of the workshop are as follows:

  • Understand how machine learning fits into the Web technology stack,
  • Understand how browser-based machine learning fits into the machine learning ecosystem,
  • Explore the impact of machine learning technologies on Web browsers and Web applications,
  • Evaluate the opportunities for standardization around machine learning APIs and formats.

Expected topics of discussion include:

  • Dedicated machine learning APIs for browsers as explored by the Machine Learning for the Web Community Group
  • Integration of browser-provided data sources in machine learning workflows
  • Layering and interoperability of machine learning APIs with other computing APIs (e.g. WebGPU, WebAssembly)
  • Domain-specific machine learning APIs
  • Interchange format for machine learning models on the Web
  • Client- and cloud-based machine learning interactions
  • On-device machine learning training in browsers
  • Risks and benefits of browser-based machine learning on privacy, security, accessibility
  • Using machine learning primitives to help improve accessibility of Web pages and applications
  • Machine learning frameworks for the Web
  • Machine learning hardware accelerators

Attendance is free for all invited participants and is open to the public, whether or not W3C members. For more information on the workshop, please see the 麻将游戏胜利界面:workshop details and submission instructions.

Registration is available online due by 21 February 2020.

WCAG-EM Report Tool: Accessibility Evaluation Report Generator is Updated

23 January 2020 | Archive

The Accessibility Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has published an updated version of WCAG-EM Report Tool: Website Accessibility Evaluation Report Generator. The tool helps you generate website accessibility evaluation reports according to Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM). WCAG-EM is an informative W3C Working Group Note. It describes an approach for evaluating how websites, including web applications and websites for mobile devices, conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). We welcome feedback on this version of the WCAG-EM Report Tool and suggestions for improvements for the next version.

Updated Candidate Recommendation: Identifiers for WebRTC’s Statistics API

14 January 2020 | Archive

The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group invites implementation of its updated Candidate Recommendation of Identifiers for WebRTC’s Statistics API. This document defines a set of WebIDL objects that allow access to the statistical information about a RTCPeerConnection. These objects are returned from the getStats API that is specified in [WEBRTC].

Comments are welcome by 21 February 2020.

W3C Advisory Committee Elects Technical Architecture Group

13 January 2020 | Archive

W3C TAG logoThe W3C Advisory Committee has elected the following people to the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG): Rossen Atanassov (Microsoft Corporation), David Baron (Mozilla Foundation) and Kenneth Rohde Christiansen (Intel Corporation). They join co-Chair Tim Berners-Lee and continuing participants, Daniel Appelquist (Samsung Electronics; co-Chair), Hadley Beeman (W3C Invited Expert), Alice Boxhall (Google), Peter Linss (W3C Invited Expert; co-Chair), Sangwhan Moon (Odd Concepts), and Theresa O’Connor (Apple, Inc.). Yves Lafon continues as staff contact. Many thanks to Lukasz Olejnik (W3C Invited Expert) whose term ends at the end of this month.

The TAG is a special group within the W3C, chartered under the W3C Process Document, with stewardship of the Web architecture. The mission of the TAG is to build consensus around principles of Web architecture and to interpret and clarify these principles when necessary, to resolve issues involving general Web architecture brought to the TAG, and to help coordinate cross-technology architecture developments inside and outside W3C. The elected Members of the TAG participate as individual contributors and not representatives of their organizations. TAG participants use their best judgment to find the best solutions for the Web, not just for any particular network, technology, vendor, or user. Learn more about the 麻将游戏胜利界面:TAG.
