Currently the hub’s main project is the Inter-Parliamentary Open Data Cloud, which aims to build a platform to access legislative documents from multiple jurisdictions. Machine-learning techniques are used to create automated translations of bills and laws, so legislation from multiple countries can be viewed in a single language. Dashboards will enable users to get quick and easy access to relevant topics (see the video).
While the hub engages ‘open data publishing parliaments’ in the Cloud project, it also seeks to promote standards and good practices to those parliaments that aim to publish open data. It does so in cooperation with the other thematic and regional hubs.
