Attribution vs association
A valid question when writing provenance in responsibility view and process view is. Should we attribute contributors from entities, isn’t that what the activities are showing? In this blog post we explore the different options.
Specially with roles it may seem unnecessary to also declare wasAttributedTo statements.
It is true that you can conclude from:
wasAttributed(ex:entity, ex:agent) then there was some activity X such that:
wasGeneratedBy(ex:entity, X) wasAssociatedWith(X, ex:entity) This conclusion follows from the constraint on agents and the definition of wasAttributedTo.
