We do not think current form of computing, data-data flow is optimal for human society. It should be a common interest for all the human society to create an existence using the power of IT to support individual human information processing ability, that is, reception, recognition, memory, integration, analysis and expression of the information. Among the technical metabolism, that is, new divices, new representation techniques arising every year based on that interest, we strongly recognize the importance of a persistence layer mainly responsible for memory, in other words, an IT that keeps stablly existing throught individual human lifecycle. What is called PDS today is very close to this. And it had better be implemented in the abstracted layer 'Cloud' or Web API (as opposed to 'Client'), which is relatively free from the metabolism. Such IT for the human society, should not be put under the control of single corporate or individual, but be shared and co-created using the knowledge of many individual or corporate entities. For that to happen, that cloud technology should be open to all the corporates, organizations and individulals over the world. Our mission is to develop and keep evolving such software and grow and nourish the application ecosystem based on it.
Our goal is to form the World scale Web of PDS's. Preferrablly with our PDS implementation 'Personium' playing significant role just as a web server implementation 'Apache' did when forming WWW (World Wide Web)
It will be a demo of the use case where the recorded data of the meal managed by the individual is controlled publicly / unpublished according to the disclosure request from the company.
UnitManager is a GUI tool that helps you manage the unit cells of Personium.
HomeApp is a Personium-based "Personal Data Store(PDS)" management application.
PCUI is the CLI version of HomeApp that helps you manage a Personium-based cell.
This demo explains the basics of OData and WebDAV by allowing you to send an instant request and verify the response. These two REST-based protocols are international standards widely used in various area. More than 90% of personium APIs are based on these two protocols. Therefore, developing applications for Personium is similar to developing any other OData/WebDAV based applications.
For the Personium community, people and companies belonging to the following companies participate in various activities.
