What You'll Want to Know!

ISO/IEC 10779:2020 Information technology — Office equipment — Accessibility guidelines for older persons and persons with disabilities
Technical Committee: ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 28 Office equipment
"This document specifies accessibility guidelines to be considered when planning, developing and designing electrophotographic copying machines, page printers and multi-function devices. These guidelines are intended to improve accessibility required when primarily older persons, persons with disabilities and persons with temporary disabilities (hereafter referred to as older persons and persons with disabilities) use office equipment."

ISO 9241-110:2020 Ergonomics of human-system interaction — Part 110: Interaction principles
Technical Committee: ISO/TC 159/SC 4 Ergonomics of human-system interaction
"This document describes principles for interaction between a user and a system that are formulated in general terms (i.e. independent of situations of use, application, environment or technology). This document provides a framework for applying those interaction principles and the general design recommendations for interactive systems. While this document is applicable to all types of interactive systems, it does not cover the specifics of every application domain (e.g. safety critical systems, collaborative work, artificial intelligence features). […] This document focuses on interaction principles related to the design of interactions between user and interactive system. ISO 9241-112 provides further guidance on the presentation of information."

ISO/IEC TR 24028:2020 Information technology — Artificial intelligence — Overview of trustworthiness in artificial intelligence
Technical Committee: ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 Artificial intelligence
"This document surveys topics related to trustworthiness in AI systems, including the following: approaches to establish trust in AI systems through transparency, explainability, controllability, etc.; engineering pitfalls and typical associated threats and risks to AI systems, along with possible mitigation techniques and methods; and approaches to assess and achieve availability, resiliency, reliability, accuracy, safety, security and privacy of AI systems. The specification of levels of trustworthiness for AI systems is out of the scope of this document."

W3C: Call for Review: JSON-LD 1.1 Specifications are W3C Proposed Recommendations
"The JSON-LD Working Group has published three Proposed Recommendations and a Working Group Note: 
•    JSON-LD 1.1 defines a JSON-based expression of Linked Data graphs. The syntax is designed to easily integrate into deployed systems that already use JSON, and provides a smooth upgrade path from JSON to JSON-LD. It enables the creation of more easily interoperable Web services, the ability to store Linked Data in JSON-based storage engines, and brings more meaningful data to Web services and APIs.
•    JSON-LD 1.1 Processing Algorithms and API defines an Application Programming Interface (API) for developers implementing a set of algorithms for programmatic transformations of JSON-LD documents.
•    JSON-LD 1.1 Framing allows developers to query a JSON-LD document’s contained graph, by example, and reshape output into a specific JSON tree layout.
•    Streaming JSON-LD discusses the processing of JSON-LD in a streaming manner. Concretely, a set of guidelines is introduced for efficiently serializing and deserializing JSON-LD in a streaming way. These guidelines are encapsulated in a JSON-LD streaming document form, and a streaming RDF form. These forms, when they are detected, allow implementations to apply streaming optimizations.
Comments on the Proposed Recommendations are welcome through 18 June 2020."
