Subject: OASIS HumanMarkup TC announcement
I would like to extend the announcement of our recently formed OASIS
HumanMarkup Technical Committee, to all interested participants and parties.
It build upon the previous work done as HumanMarkup.org.
The HumanMarkup TC is set forth to develop the HumanML and associated
specifications. HumanML is designed to represent human characteristics
through XML. The aim is to enhance the fidelity of human communication.
HumanML is set forth to be an XML Schema and RDF Schema specification,
containing sets of modules which frame and embed contextual human
characteristics including physical, cultural, social, kinesic,
psychological, and intentional features within conveyed information. Other
efforts within the scope of the HumanMarkup TC include messaging, style,
alternate schemas, constraint mechanisms, object models, and repository
systems, which will address the overall concerns of both representing and
amalgamating human information within data.
Examples of human characteristics include emotions, physical descriptors,
proxemics, kinesics, haptics, intentions, and attitude. Applications of
HumanML include agents of various types, AI systems, virtual reality,
psychotherapy, online negotiations, facilitations, dialogue, and conflict
