How does Amithings deal with Information

We understand the Information as a set of data with a meaning. In Amithings, the Information is an entity oriented to serve a specific purpose. We give it a practical sense of general utility. It’s been a long time since we are in the era of Information and we are still dealing with data. The concept of data loses relevance to make room for Information. There is no place for meaningless data. All Information is very well defined and represented by the context in which it is inserted and by their set of Meta Information (properties, attributes, methods, triggers, events, statistics, etc.), no matter its size. Being the smallest unit in Amithings, the Information comes organized in sets of Information, only to facilitate their understanding and manipulation. Here are a few examples of sets of Information: Television network schedule Species of spiders that inhabit the island of Madagascar Boiling point of chemical compounds Paragraphs of a book McDonalds restaurants in the world Episodes of House Books of Nietzsche Moons of the Solar System Films of Christopher Nolan Technical specifications of a product line All mobile devices A list with all true type fonts Sets of Information are organized in the form of tables, with two or more dimensions. So, they have headers, columns, rows, and cells. Each set of Information has a unique identifier known as Web Id, which allows us to access it individually. The same applies to each of their cells, which are also Information and can be accessed individually too. As a kind of Web Database, Amithings introduces some changes in the way of dealing with Information: Tables stores Information instead of data. Each individual row, column or cell, group of columns, group of cells and the own Information has its own meta information (attributes, properties, events, methods, triggers, statistics), and it can be retrieved by a Web Id, a unique...
What is Amithings

What is Amithings

Amithings is a service designed to promote a strong integration between the real and the virtual world with minimal effort. Based on seven principles, which are Structure, Organization, Completeness, Standardization, Centralization, Security and Realiability, Amithings has as main objectives the democratization of Information and Knowledge, decision making and aid for research and development of new technologies. The main concept behind Amithings comes from a structure that is present in relational databases: Tables. They give to the Information two of the seven principles, which are Structure and Organization. By dealing directly with Information, instead of data, Amithings stands one step of the Knowledge, removing from the equation the time and resources we would normally spend on storing, selecting, combining, processing and transforming data. Technically, Amithings can be compared to a Web Database, providing Information in several ways for humans, applications and machines. Let’s try an example: Why this public table is not available in JSON, XML, XLS, CSV and all kind of formats and patterns? Amithings wants to solve this problem, becoming a source of Information we can trust to do all the things we want....
