Towards a Domain-Agnostic Computable Policy Tool

Policies are often crucial for decision-making in a wide range of domains. Typically they are written in natural language, which leaves room for different individual interpretations. In contrast, computable policies offer standardization for the structures that encode information, which can help decrease ambiguity and variability of interpretations. Sadly, the majority of computable policy frameworks are domain-specific or require tailored customization, limiting potential applications of this technology. For this reason, we propose ADAPT, a domain-agnostic policy tool that leverages domain knowledge, expressed in knowledge graphs, and employs W3C standards in semantics and provenance to enable the construction, visualization, and management of computable policies that include domain knowledge to reduce terminology inconsistencies, and augment the policy evaluation process.
