Integrated Userware for the Intelligent, Intuitive, and Trust-Enhancing Management of the User's Personal Information Sphere in Digital and Social Environments (
Start date: Nov 1, 2010, End date: Oct 31, 2013 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description Integrating data in personal and business sphere by a single, user-controlled point of access. The use and disclosure of personal information for private and business life is a major trend in information society. Advantages like enhancing social contacts, personalising services and products compromise with notable privacy risks arising from the user’s loss of control over their personal data and digital footprints. Large amounts of scattered personal data lead to information overload, disorientation and loss of aims at integrating all personal data in a personal sphere by a single, user-controlled point of access: the userware. This tool will run on the user’s devices, and rely on scalable peer-to-peer communication in order to avoid external storage of personal data as far as possible and to enhance data portability. External services (e.g. web-communities, enterprise systems) will be integrated via gateways. Communication to individuals and services will make use of digital faces, i.e. user data selected for a particular purpose and context.
