Members of the OASIS Classification of Everyday Living (COEL) TC  have recently approved a Special Majority Ballot  to advance Classification of Everyday Living Version 1.0 as a Candidate OASIS Standard (COS). The COS now enters a 60-day public review period in preparation for a member ballot to consider its approval as an OASIS Standard.
Classification of Everyday Living Version 1.0
Candidate OASIS Standard 01
18 October 2018
The OASIS COEL specification provides a privacy-by-design framework for the collection and processing of behavioural data. It is uniquely suited to the transparent use of dynamic data for personalised digital services, IoT applications where devices are collecting information about identifiable individuals and the coding of behavioural data in identity solutions. The specification pseudonymises personal data at source and maintains a separation of different data types with clearly defined roles & responsibilities for all actors. All behavioural data are defined as event-based packets. Every packet is connected directly to an individual and can contain a summary of the consent they provided for the processing of the data. A combination of a taxonomy of all human behaviours (the COEL model) and the event-based protocol provide a universal template for data portability. Simple interface specifications enforce the separation of roles and provide system-level interoperability.
The TC received 5 Statements of Use from Activinsights, Coelition, Fujitsu, OpenConsent, and University of Exeter .
