MIRACLE pilot is officially over – we are not standard

  At 31st July 2016, the MIRACLE pilot project co-funded by the European Union, has officially come to an end. We, the MIRACLE consortium partners, had very busy, highly interesting and fruitful 30 months, where we particularly achieved to show that machine-readable and interoperable age ratings are not a figment of the future, but can be implemented in a very feasible and economic manner. Plus, they show a great amount of added value for all stakeholders along the value chain of the current value web. Starting from this insight, it’s no big surprise that we as a project consortium agreed on continuing our work on the MIRACLE specification and its advantages in practice. For this to happen, we have formed MIRACLE’s Sustainability ...

How to implement MIRACLE? Implementation Strategy Reports published standard

While it might look easy to develop a common data model for age labels, things are getting more serious when it comes to implementing such a specification as MIRACLE in your existing data infrastructure and services. Five partners of the MIRACLE consortium currently have the task of implementing MIRACLE. To document the decision-making progress as well as the context factors of each system they were asked to provide Implementation Strategy Reports. The reports from BBFC, NICAM, PEGI, FSM and NCBI are now finalized and provide a look into potential implementation approaches in great detail. Have fun reading! BBFC_MIRACLE-ImplementationStrategyReport FSM_MIRACLE-ImplementationStrategyReport NCBI_MIRACLE-ImplementationStrategyReport NICAM_MIRACLE-ImplementationStrategyReport PEGI_MIRACLE-ImplementationStrategyReport (17th Jan 2015: Updated versions of the reports from PEGI and NCBI.)

MIRACLE version 1.0 published standard

The MIRACLE project partners are happy to announce that version 1.0 of MIRACLE’s data model has been published as of today. This will serve as the specification that currently gets implemented in five different age classification contexts and will be basis for applications that are able to process MIRACLE data. During the last weeks, we worked in all comments received during the public consultation and extended the scope aspects of the specification significantly. We tried to think of all relevant future aspects at this point in time already, to have a future-proof model with version 1.0 already. However, several iterative steps are planned to optimise this version when and where needed. So we appreciate all comments from the perspective of experts ...

MIRACLE specification: Public consultation running standard

To consider views and comments from data and metadata experts as well as industry players in the field of age classification, the MIRACLE consortium conducts a public consultation on version 0.93 of the MIRACLE specification. The consultation has started on 25 June 2014 and runs for 4 weeks. You will find all relevant documents both on the MIRACLE website and on the W3C community group site. All interested stakeholders are invited to comment on the proposed specification.  Right after the end of the consultation phase, the project members will discuss all comments received. If comments result in changes of the data model, we will publish the respective version 1.0 shortly after. Feel free to dive into the proposal and don’t hesitate to comment on the specification. ...

Public consultation on MIRACLE’s data model about to start standard

To consider views and comments from data and metadata experts as well as industry players in the field of age classification, the MIRACLE consortium will conduct a public consultation on version 1.0 of the MIRACLE specification. The consultation will start in mid-June 2014 and runs for 4 weeks. You will find all relevant documents both on the MIRACLE website and on the W3C community group site. All interested stakeholders are invited to comment on the data model proposal. Right after the end of the consultation phase, the project members will convene and discuss all comments received. If comments result in changes of the data model, we will publish the respective version 1.1 shortly after that project meeting. Feel free to dive in to the ...

First draft for a data model proposal standard

During the project’s kick-off meeting on 10 April 2014 in Brussels, the consortium partners agreed on a first draft of a MIRACLE data specification. We will bring the current version – which basically builds on the proposal of the CEO Coalition’s Task Force on Machine-Readability and Interoperability – into shape, resulting in a very short an concise technical specification document as well as a more extensive documentation paper including policy considerations. Once we have finally agreed on these tow papers, we will publish those docs on this website as well on the W3C platform and invite all interested stakeholder to participate in the public consultation. “See” you soon!
