Engaging in Co-Creation Robot Research with Researchers around the World

By News

The Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) Frontier Research Center is dedicated to providing freedom of mobility for all. To that end, it is engaged in research into robots that live in harmony with people. The Frontier Research Center has adopted co-creation research, which is a collaborative approach to research whereby researchers around the world are free to participate as they choose. Here, we ask researchers Yuuka Hashiguchi and Yasukata Yokochi why Toyota has chosen a co-creation approach to developing robots, and we also hear about the latest results of their research.

Maestros is a webinar series developed for industry leaders to share stories and relevant content about intellectual property, patents and innovation.

With the increasing use of third-party open source software components, libraries and frameworks in building modern applications, the importance of managing open source software license obligations has never been higher. In the second episode of this series, you will understand why organizations such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Toshiba are adopting a standard for managing open source license compliance. Our guest speaker, Martin Callinan, will show you the requirements to conform, where you can get support and how to use a benefit from conforming to the standard.

How OpenChain Became The International Standard for Compliance @ FOSSBackstage

By News

This talk explored the process of building and deploying the first Linux Foundation ISO standard in fourteen years in collaboration with the Joint Development Foundation. It explained why the evolution from de facto industry standard to formal standardization was important for open source compliance in the context of areas like sale, procurement and M&A. An equal amount of time was spent providing a guide to the journey itself, as the lessons learned are applicable to all projects building out specifications or code that seek worldwide, lasting adoption across multiple industries. The standardization process was framed in the context of timely engagement, with SPDX queued to be the second Joint Development Foundation PAS submission behind OpenChain, and everyone involved ready to support more projects undertaking a similar journey in the months and years ahead. In practical terms, it allows the audience to come away with a clear understanding of how we will take open source and standards to the next level.

Three hours. Three important discussions.

First Hour: Our Specification Work Group will work on an optional security support document for OpenChain ISO 5230. This will take the form of an explanatory document illustrating OpenChain usage in the context of security.

Second Hour: Our Education Work Group will work on finalizing the OpenChain online course. The focus will be on merging all remaining comments with the current document. We will also be locking down the “Supplier Education Pack” containing basic supplier education, OpenChain introduction, and our reference training material.

Third Hour: We will review the current “state of the union” in open source automation based on the experience and knowledge of the OpenChain Reference Tooling Work Group. We aim to identity the “pain points” for interoperability between various open source tools for open source compliance.
