Building a digital law pipeline for machine-executable legislation

Nalantis and Verses are partners in FlyingForward 2020, a consortium funded by the European Commission and working on a new urban air mobility ecosystem and aligning it within the spatial data infrastructure of cities. We are applying natural language understanding AI to automatically deconstruct human written legislation into meaningful semantic code and integrate this code with an open geospatial digital infrastructure based on spatial web standards. Currently, a vast amount of manpower and labeled training data for machine learning purposes is still needed to code this. Our methodology creates plug-and-play machine-executable algorithms that can be applied to the autonomous space.
