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....
How does Amithings deal with Information

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...
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).  ...
