- cloud platforms controls almost every aspect of their users' lives
Private Cyberspace turns the existing Cloud Control Flow UPSIDE DOWN, by letting the user control application through infrastructure.
Making Private Cyberspace affordable and attractive to all 8 billion on earth requires a PARADIGM SHIFT in economies of scale:
- from achieving economies of scale through Centralisation (cloud platforms growing as many users as possible). It is about a few planning what might be efficient FOR OTHERS in the future.
- into achieving economies of scale through Collaboration (private cyberspaces working together as much as possible). It is about many deciding what is efficient FOR THEMSELVES in real-time.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier to RELIABLE infrastructure by leveraging community idle capacities (e.g. unused disks, bored retirees), reusing broken devices (e.g. laptops with faulty screens & keyboards) and taking over data income from the Cloud.
- Cloud Platform lowers cost by SHARING platform resources between many platform users.
- Private Cyberspace lowers cost by AGGREGATING the resources of many cyberspace owners.
Currently most people can only collaborate via cloud platforms, with private cyberspace everyone can collaborate directly and benefit from network effects that were only available cloud platforms before.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier by leveraging community idle capacities (e.g. unused disks, bored retirees), reusing broken devices (e.g. laptops with faulty screens & keyboards) and taking over data income from the Cloud.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier to private cyberspace ownership by aggregating surplus resources from others and taking over data income from the Cloud. Everyone now have RELIABLE infrastructure to operate at any scale, no matter their wealth.
- Cloud Platforms make impacts based solely on the platform's interests (e.g. valuation or profit).
- Private Cyberspaces can make impacts based on their owners' many different interests..
- Cloud Platform rewards its user based on proprietary platform ALGORITHMS.
- Private Cyberspace rewards its owners based on MUTUALLY perceived value.
A major dilemma with selling your data is the lack of privacy, the more data you sell the less privacy you have. So your data income was essentially limited by how much privacy you are willing to lose.
Private Dataspace solves this income dilemma by letting you sell your data without losing your privacy with the world's first deployment of homomorphic encryption at population scale.
Private Dataspace uses a novel 2 step data exchange process to not just protect owner privacy but also to ensure maximum return on owner data.
If someone uses your personal data and infrastructure built with your tax dollars to generate massive profits from their AI models, may be they should give you some money in return ?
Instead of money, now that you have you own Private Cyberspace with compute power, may be they can:
- Let your cyberspace run the software performing the inferencing and training with your data ?
- Let you cyberspace use the resulting models that were trained with your data ?
- Let your cyberspace access other data they were used with along with your data in training their model ?
Once you have collected some data into your own private cyberspace, you can OPTIONALLY work other cyberspaces in a safe and synergistic manner to solve the most difficult problems facing humankind.
From the wifi signals on the street to the barcodes on a bottle of milk, you can donate or sell the the data you have collected in your Private Cyberspace immediately on collection or on a later date.
Selling DATA in your Private Cyberspace redirects the funds originally going to the Cloud Platforms to you, however Private Cyberspace also let you sell INSIGHTS by processing your data yourself and then selling the resulting insight, which is substantially safer than exposing your data to others.
You can also use your Private Cyberspace to receive data anonymously, from a pothole on the road in front to an active shooter in the building, from an ambulance coming up behind you to proving you are somewhere else at a certain time in courts ... the possibilities are endless.
Innovation sets Human Intelligence apart from Artificial Intelligence, innovation needs compute and data to thrive, restricting the compute and data to dozens of companies worldwide is directly restricting the ability of the rest of us to innovate.
No matter how smart the staff are at the Cloud Platforms (Apple, Google, Open AI etc.), the diversity introduced through the participation of the rest of the world will result in MORE and BETTER innovations.
Most importantly, those innovations will be carried out under the DIRECTIONS of billions of citizens instead of dozens of board members.
Private Cyberspace provides instant compute power to MANY so their digital lives are no longer dependent on the compute power from a FEW (e.g. Apple, Google, ChatGPT etc.).
analysing detailed data deeply (previously not possible on cloud platforms due to privacy reasons)
- cloud platforms know more about users than the users themselves
interacting directly with people safely (previously you need to go through cloud platforms)
Each person can have one or more Private Cyberspaces and each Private Cyberspace can operate under one or more aliases.
Unlike Cloud Platforms which attempt to identify you and target you even across applications and sites, Private Cyberspace encourages you to have different identities for different purposes. Fine grain control allows you to tune each alias for different groups of people and different types of applications.
PRIVATE alias is used to collect raw data privately on your phone and sharing them at your own time and through your own means, there is no interaction with any exchange. In fact, since the Console will not "phone home" to application providers under GUEST alias, you will need to check for new software updates manually, it will not check itself. Basically you are using the Console to built your information assets "off the grid".
GUEST aliases are used for interacting anonymously with exchanges. You will start to see more information (like the name of the local government area you are currently in) and be able to.
Private Cyberspace enables you to EXCHANGE surplus compute power with others in the community e.g. use the others' laptops when they are asleep or backup your data to the unused capacities on their hard disks.
Private Cyberspace enables you to purchase compute power using the data income from the information ASSET you have collected e.g. external data like WiFi signal strengths on the street or personal data like the barcode on the drink you purchased.
Private Cyberspace's barrier to entry for people without a smart phone is approximately AU$39 (WiFi is sufficient no need for mobile SIM), making a nationwide Virtual Vaccine program substantially cheaper than the never ending costs to taxpayers of real vaccines.
