Survey: Towards GIPO federation roadmap - how can GIPO be useful for you?

By: Kasia Jakimowicz

Join our survey: http://bit.ly/1WMYtJX

GIPO aims to provide an automated tool able to decode, contextualise and analyse thousands of pieces of data around a wide set of Internet governance topics. As a final product, the GIPO Observatory Tool will be able to seamlessly provide powerful insights into Internet searches related to cyber security, jurisdiction, e-commerce and several other important Internet related issues. Currently, the project is in the first beta testing phase and second “iteration” of a four-part software development plan that would have the Observatory Tool ready for public use as early as 2016.

GIPO adopts federated approach. The goal is to overcome the fragmentation and complexity of information but GIPO does not aim to centralize all this information by replacing the existing spaces. Instead, it is meant to be complementary and federated to them. GIPO is designed as a service to both final users and ,for most, to other observatories that can use the automated tool to get the information for further curation. In this respect the issue of degree of  interoperability is of a major importance. 

GIPO federation roadmap is aimed at analysis of the possible scenarios of collaboration between GIPO and other initiatives. The results of the analysis will be published by the end of 2015.

If you think your project / initiative can cooperate with GIPO either as a user or an info provider, please fill-in the survey form to add your organisation to the list.

Thank you for collaboration!
