Why I like the Poster Competitions ! Please organise in the State of the Map 2018 again !

Posted by ImreSamu on 23 January 2018 in English (English)

Some reasons:

  • I like visualizations, arts, and maps!
  • I have enjoyed the Sotm-eu 2014 Poster Competition
  • I have printed some of them ( color A2 size) - and reusing all the times the best posters!
    • I put on the walls in the local Foss4g/OpenSource conferences - and the visitors like it!!!
      • This is a core of our "Tile Based OSM presentation"! ( and a Minimal Viable Marketing )

So please organize a "Poster Competitions" in the State of the Map 2018 again!

I need new posters for our marketing actions! :)

Rules for Robot/A.I. Mappers

Posted by ImreSamu on 6 October 2016 in English (English)

background:

Robot Mappers , machine-learning and artificial intelligence (“robot”) techniques ; http://mike.teczno.com/notes/openstreetmap-at-a-crossroads.html

Maybe, in the future we need some ethical suggestions, like

  • "Robot mappers must be designed to assist humanity" meaning human autonomy needs to be respected.
  • "Robot mappers must be transparent" meaning that humans should know and be able to understand how they work.
  • "Robot mappers must maximize efficiencies without destroying the dignity of people".
  • "Robot mappers must be designed for intelligent privacy" meaning that it earns trust through guarding their information.
  • "Robot mappers must have algorithmic accountability so that humans can undo unintended harm".
  • "Robot mappers must guard against bias" so that they must not discriminate people.

based on Satya Nadella's A.I. laws

ps. I added this to the OSM Wiki:Talk:Automated Edits code of conduct

iD Editor - Translation QA tools, Determine Duplicate Elements, Export translated presets to CSV

Posted by ImreSamu on 19 November 2014 in English (English)

I have created a working prototype ( https://gist.github.com/ImreSamu/18fd1a419e514642ed4b ) for

Detecting duplicate translations.

Export presets to CSV ( example hungarian output imported to google sheets :

I think it is very useful for me and the small hungarian community for detecting translations problems, and errors.

I have created a proposal for a similar service for helping translators: https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/2448

some new languages examples:
