Digital technologies are becoming integral to our daily lives. They promise huge benefits to society, but the data they create carries the potential for abuse.
COEL is a hierarchical taxonomy of everyday human life events, comprised of a Knowledge Base, Data Model, and Methodology. It aims to be a roadmap for collecting and handling personal data that protects the interests of both individuals and businesses.
