Hello everyone. After having experienced two problems both as an end user trying to self-track or a software developer trying to make sense of my data, I’m exploring the idea of a platform that functions as a data hub for our self-data. By having all necessary integrations it will collect data from measuring devices/sources and provide all these data through an API to any developers that want to consume and analyse them.
Problems to solve:
- end user owns all the data in one place
- end user determines which app has what access to to what data
- developers/scientists can focus on building software only consuming ready data through the API
- device/source makers can focus on building the best way to collect data
I’m trying to avoid reinventing the wheel, so I would be grateful if you could enlighten me if something similar exists, or I could build on, or collaborate with. From what I’ve seen now, all efforts that aggregate data for some reason want to also provide the value out of it (visualisation, advices etc) instead of enabling all the developers out there to come up with their own solutions - like Apple did with the AppStore and opened their iPhone I/O to developers to figure out what to do with it.
Thank you in advance!
