What: SIS: Singluar Information Systems
When: Wednesday 20th, 14h
I’m Cédrik Béler, permanent researcher at ENIT/LGP in Tarbes and I’m visiting RMOD for 2 weeks so as to work on a research project called SIS (Singular Information Systems).
The goal of SIS is to provide efficient and secure ways of exchanging information. The simple yet powerful idea is that having a single (unique) information system for each singular entity should enhance dramatically information exchange in the digital society. SIS dedicated to persons are the cornerstone of the project but the concepts also apply to organizations and (smart) objects.
A SIS can store every possible bits of information the owner wants to capitalize and process during his whole life according to a high level of privacy and control. If privacy is guaranteed, the owner can have trust in his system and therefore take advantage of it at their full potential. Each information that is exchanged with others SIS (information transaction) is done according to contracts and update are pushed seamlessly (when a connection is established). Each SIS possesses local versions of the information set that are shared with other SIS. It keeps a (synchronized) list of persons, organizations and objects with whom he shares/exchanges information.
To make use of SIS, lots of services could be developed, whether there are internal or external, commercial or not. Internal services run only private information (private inference, smart assistance, life capitalization, personal planning…) and external services provide means of interactions with other SIS (collaboration, collective planning, trade, meeting, …).
The short term objective of the project is to prototype a SIS applied in the context of an association, and in particular to volley-ball. Personal SIS will be set up for players, managers, referees, parents… Organizational SIS will be set up for teams, club, departmental and regional league, … The functionalities that should be developed are the storage of personal information as the facilities to exchange them with other entities (a SMS server will be used with an API). Collaborative tools should be developed too to help planning, survey as meeting note taking.
