Ross-Talbot is co-chair of RuleML, a new XML/RDF standards initiative for Web-based rule interchange and processing. As Enigmatec's chief scientist Ross-Talbot will continue to drive RuleML forward while working closely with CTO Duncan Johnston-Watt to shape the future technology direction of Enigmatec Corporation.
