Saturday, 20:00 UTC
Duration: 60 minutes (plus Q&A)
This event will not be recorded.
The panel discussion will be broken into 3 sections:
Introduction (5 minutes): Brief Introduction of Panelists and their involvement in OSM, as quantified in existing work. This includes a very brief overview of paid-editing in OSM and how the scale has increased in recent years, along with the adoption of AI-assisted mapping, and any new datasets made available. This will be positioned within the results of the OSMF 2021 Community Survey and briefly discuss the distinction between corporations as data consumers and corporations as data producers.
Formal Panelist Introductions (5-8 minutes each). Each speaker will have a few minutes to describe their company’s involvement in and use of OSM.
Moderated Discussion (40 - 60 minutes). The audience will have the chance to pose questions in a separate chat / shared document and the moderator will collate questions and ask the panelists. Example questions to the panelists include:
The list of panel participants has yet to be finalized.
The panel will be moderated by Jennings Anderson, an OSM researcher who has written about and continues to research the involvement of corporations in OSM.
