Gravity.com Interest Graph Engine

Gravity calculates Interest Graphs for each user, so that they can enjoy dynamic experiences tailored to their interests on sites using Gravity Personalization.


How it works: We calculate what's interesting on the web in real-time. As new content is published across the web or shared on the social web, Gravity crawls, indexes and semantically analyzes each web page, tweet, status update or post. Gravity organizes structured and unstructured content by interest, so that we can calculate trending topics or surface the most viral stories about any topic on demand. Finally, we deliver personalized recommendations to each user based on the topics they engage with most and what's exciting right now.

CALO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CALO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

CALO was an artificial intelligence project funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)[1] under its Personalized Assistant that Learns (PAL) program. Its five-year contract brought together 300+ researchers from 25 of the top university and commercial research institutions, with the goal of building a new generation of cognitive assistants that can reason, learn from experience, be told what to do, explain what they are doing, reflect on their experience, and respond robustly to surprise. SRI International was the lead integrator responsible for coordinating the effort to produce an assistant that can live with and learn from its users, provide value to them, and then pass a yearly evaluation that measures how well the system has learned to do its job.

A Personal Network, as unique as you - Personal

A Personal Network, as unique as you - Personal | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

Green, 40, said Personal enables individuals to own, control access to and benefit from their personal information now bouncing around the digital world.

Personal will do this through online vaults called "gems," where you can store and share information such as how to work your television or contact the local emergency room — both of which would be useful for your babysitter. Other gems have more commercial value to the owner, such as what clothes you buy, what wines you drink and what kinds of electronics you purchase.

“The real magic on the commercial side is information on what you plan to do or purchase, which is the altar at which all things digital worships,” Green said.

Personal has contracts — developed with the help of the former director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office — to prevent companies or anyone else from sharing your gems with others. Even if Personal were acquired, the new owners would be prohibited from exploiting the data.

There are more than 100 gems with more than 3,000 fields of data. The car gem contains your vehicle identification number, your tire pressure and the date when your next oil change is due. The food preferences gem includes allergies, religious and dietary restrictions, and whether you like spicy — or not. Imagine choreographing your dinner party with that kind of precision.

You can share gems with family, friends, employees or colleagues. Where Personal hopes to make its money is if you mon­etize your data (Personal doesn’t like the word “sell”) through commercial activities with companies that want to buy it. Personal wants to be your “agent,” collecting a 10 percent fee on the compensation you receive each time you monetize your data.

So if I were a user of Personal, I could fill in the data fields in my gem on travel preferences for my trip to Stockholm this summer. I would release the information to Stockholm hotels, which could compete for my business based on my preferences for a clubby hotel bar, delicious breakfasts, a king-size bed and access to running trails. If a hotel gave me a discount or cash payment, Personal would collect a 10 percent fee.

Personal can’t stop companies and others from scavenging data by tracking your online activities. It does, however, “give you the tools to monetize your data, but only if you want to,” Green said.

About TeleHash

TeleHash is a new wire protocol for exchanging JSON in a real-time and fully decentralized manner, enabling applications to connect directly and participate as servers on the edge of the network. It is designed to efficiently route and distribute small bits of data in order for applications to discover each other directly or in relation to events around piece of shared content. The core benefits of TeleHash over other similar platforms and protocols is that it is both generic (not tied to any specific application or content structures) and is radically decentralized with no servers or points of central control.

Interest Graph - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interest Graph - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

The Interest Graph refers to the specific and varied interests that form one’s personal identity, and the attempt to connect people based on those interests. On an individual scale, this means the different things one person is interested in—be it jogging, celebrity gossip, or animal rights—that make up their likes and dislikes, and what has more meaning to them over someone else. On a broader scale, it’s the way those interests form unspoken relationships with others who share them, and expand to create a network of like-minded people.


Contrary to the Social Graph, which subsists of the network of people you know personally,[1] the Interest Graph consists of the network of people who share interest with you, but who you don’t necessarily know personally.[2] While the Social Graph, which was popularized by Facebook, has been touted by Mark Zuckerberg as making it so that “groups and applications can achieve enormous growth”,[3] others are starting to question its limitations in connecting people in a meaningful way.

Meet Siri’s Less Popular Sister: Trap.it

Meet Siri’s Less Popular Sister: Trap.it | Digital Memory | Scoop.it
Trap.it looks at 100,000 blogs, Twitter feeds, and publishers. It’s not SEO garbage, Nothhaft said, and uses human curators to make sure the content that they are serving up is good.

“Without high quality content, there isn’t much to consume. These days, people don’t make the distinction between newspaper, magazine, and social. We just want it in a compelling format and want to be able to share it and socialize around it.” Nothhaft said.

“It will build an interest model and rate more content as I go. It searches the Web on my behalf. Every morning, I get an email briefing of relevant articles,” Nothhaft said.

What is The Interest Graph? Scoop.it CEO Guillaume Decugis Shares Insights

What is The Interest Graph? Scoop.it CEO Guillaume Decugis Shares Insights | Digital Memory | Scoop.it
We differ first by the format we’re using, which is great for what I call “serious content” (which by no means imply superior in my mind, but which is clearly different from women shoe picture or fuck yeah blogs): TED Talks, blog posts, ideas, long form articles, infographics, Slideshare presentations, etc.
The other aspect is precisely the “interest graph” component: Scoop.it is built with a topic-centric model, where users follow topics – not people. This makes it easier for experts of a particular topic to develop an audience and for anyone to follow their interests by getting signal without noise. These two components have been key in getting the traction we’re enjoying now, which probably makes Scoop.it one of the largest community of curators in the prosumer segment.

What is happening at Delicious?

What is happening at Delicious? | Digital Memory | Scoop.it
”We are going to restart innovation on the Delicious brand.” So the idea is to use an existing one, rather than “creating a new brand from scratch” to push through new ideas — lots of little ones. “I know how hard it is to build a brand, so this is an interesting experiment.”

He didn’t elaborate on what, exactly, those new services might be, but another project he is working on, Zeen, may point to what he might mean. Zeen, which has yet to go live, will be a way for people to create their own “beautiful magazines,” according to its site — that sounds a little like Yahoo’s Livestand attempt and Flipboard. Hurley notes that his company’s 40 developers are currently spread across three places, China (Beijing), New Zealand and San Mateo.

This does not mean, though, that they are planning to scrap what Delicious is already doing: they have recently launched a Mandarin version of Delicious, for example.

Charts from the American Time Use Survey

If this "average day" does not sound like a typical day in your household, it is because these numbers are for all persons in the U.S. age 15 and over, and for all days of the week combined. The information can be further analyzed by age, sex, employment status, day of the week, or presence and age of household children. Looking at information for certain groups in the population provides a more accurate picture of how each group spends its time. For example, the chart above shows how employed persons ages 25 to 54, who live in households with children under 18, spent their time on an average workday. These individuals spent an average of 8.6 hours working or in work-related activities, 7.6 hours sleeping, 2.6 hours doing leisure and sports activities, and 1.2 hours caring for others, including children.

Singly - interface to self data

Singly has standardized authorization. No matter the OAuth version or the subtleties for the services we support, the only authorization you’ll think about is the way Singly does it.

 

Singly is an open personal data platform.

Our mission is to empower people to own their story – to secure it, see it and share it in ways never before possible.

We aim to deliver truly personalized computing; to foster the development of an ecosystem that unlocks the creative potential of developers who make the web the innovative platform it is; and to provide genuine, lasting value for real people, putting each of us at the center of the web.

We value openness, integrity and the freedom that comes with communicating transparently, and through the act of creation. We ♥ node.js, sunlight, TCP over UDP, vegetables, good beer and music.

Our story literally began at the Field of Dreams in Iowa, surrounded by large (grain) silos, and a conversation around what it looks like if personal data had a better field to play on. Our journey is underway, with the belief that “if we build it, they will come”.
