Standardizing a niche Information

Standardizing a niche Information

In Amithings, standardization means building a model to accommodate the different niches Information in a way they can be easily handled. The standardization should become the most important feature of Amithings in obtaining Knowledge. Its direct consequence is the economy of resources of all kinds. Let’s take as an example from the smartphone industry. There are many smartphone models available in the planet. What about the thousands e-commerce sites storing the same product details, such as photos, titles and specifications? If there was a list of all existing smartphones, properly standardized, in accordance with the seven principles of Amithings, we would have a large reduction in data storage and duplicate information, because e-commerces no longer need to store product details in their databases, but rather a reference for them. Of course, we would require the cooperation of the mobile devices industry. We realize that the standardization can cause a large reduction in data storage. Other direct benefits are the uniformity and consistency of Information available among different e-commerce sites. We know the huge effort required to standardize each niche Information. It would be like to create a social network exclusively for books, another for animals, another for movies, and so on....
The seven principles of Amithings

The seven principles of Amithings

Amithings is being constructed based on these seven principles: 1. Structure – The rules and Meta Information that will give shape, size and consistency to the Information. 2. Organization – Information distributed within an area prepared to accommodate it, in order to facilitate their location and identification. 3. Completeness – Relates to the integrality and totality of the Information, a responsibility of the Maintainer which is very important for the acquisition of Knowledge. 4. Standardization – Key feature for obtaining implicit Knowledge, representing a role in reducing costs with technology. Imposes uniformity to different niches Information, removes duplicate Information, assists in obtaining and handling Information. Combined with Centralization, it causes huge reduction in duplication and replication of Information. Encouraged by Amithings, Standardization depends on the cooperation of the market/industry. 5. Centralization – A single source of indexing Information will allow us to locate it quickly and securely. A good example of Centralization would be consulting the meaning of a word in the official dictionary of the language. 6. Security – An aspect that should be provided by Amithings to ensure the inviolability of Information by unauthorized people or machines. 7. Reliability – An Information is reliable when provided by an official source (Maintainer).  ...
A world where everything is connected

A world where everything is connected

Imagine a world where all sources of Information are structured, organized, complete, standardized, centralized, secure and reliable. Don’t be fooled, this is not the perfect world, but it can connect everything to everything with a minimum effort, a scenario conducive to great unprecedented merger in history: the real world with the virtual. In our attempts to virtualize the real world, we put everything we consider important on the Internet. We do this in a disorderly manner, unstructured and decentralized. To impose a minimum of order amid the chaos of the Internet, we need search engines, discovery engines, catalogs of information, blogs, forums, business listings, maps, complex algorithms, and many resources of all kinds. However, the Information on the Web are not always secure, reliable, or complete. The Internet has grown cluttered. For us humans, it is not problem to deal with this reality. We are adaptable, we’re growing, learning and even having fun with it. But what about machines? We cannot simply plugging them on the network, it is not safe. See the example of the intelligent refrigerator. Although we believe that Internet is growing “exponentially”, it seems to be moving slowly. We say this by comparing what we do today with what it could be done. Find patterns and Knowledge in the midst of chaos is a costly task, requires time, high investments in education and research, it is reserved for few, and too often it makes us incur errors. The Zurich Axioms, in particular the Major Axiom 5 (On patterns) says: “Chaos is not dangerous until it begins to look orderly.”. When we bring Order to the Information,...
