Last week was the Free Software and Open Source Symposium 2012, hosted and organized by Seneca @ York + CDOT. In the spirit of openness, here is a bird’s eye view of noospheer’s components. (Click for full size)
Breakdown ‘The system’ is designed as an open source solution stack, intended to put to rest 4 important problems in computer science:
- Integration ~ merging data from many disparate sources, while retaining the integrity of each original source.
- Distribution ~ efficiently spreading this federated set of information across a potentially infinite number of web-enabled devices.
- Privacy ~ using emulated quantum cryptographic schemes to provide data security better than the current state of the art.
- Visualization ~ making intuitive sense, in-browser, out of complex data; so all users can ask advanced questions and get insightful answers [note: we further intend to make the network fully accessible to those with special needs].
