On 9 November, Jan Voskuil had the honor to participate in the 90-minute Industry Panel at the ER 2023 conference in Lisbon, together with Magda Cocco (head of ICT practice at Vieira de Almeida, a Portuguese law firm), Walid Saba (Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Experiential AI at Northeastern University), and Mike Bennett (technical director at OMG and originator of the FIBO ontology, the widely used standards repository for financial industry concepts and definitions).
It was great to confront so many wonderful ideas from different perspectives with each other. In this blog post, Jan summarizes some of the major points and add a bit of extra perspective. First, however, a big thank you to Giancarlo Guizzardi and Jose Borbinha for organizing this edition of the ER-conference. It was the first time Jan attended this conference, but certainly not the last.
