Calculemus-Flint is a method and a language for making legal texts machine-readable and comprehensible for people. An extensible open-source development platform, a toolbox that is continuously developed further in order to keep the fast-moving digital world abiding to human norms. The goal of the Calculemus-Flint project is to create explicit human and machine-readable specifications based on laws and other rulings and make this method applicable on a large scale so public service can be improved. The most important elements of the method are the following:
- Interpretation of juridical sources using the wording from the source.
- Interpretation is aimed at describing legally correct acts, the conditions that that acts need to adhere to and the results of that acts
- Maximal separation of concern, separating juridical sources from interpretation and from applying that interpretation for answering a normative question.
- Interpretations should be comprehensible for people with different backgrounds, including juridical people, government and business service people, IT-people and stakeholders.
- A detailed reference to the source.
