We’ve published a number of pages explaining the theoretical background of Perspectives. More is to follow. Currently, we provide the following:
- Philosophy. Perspectivism is a philosophical school of thought with some bearing to our work. The same holds for Contextualism.
- Perspectives on Information. In the context of Perspectives, the concept of ‘information’ acquires a new meaning. We thoroughly deal with contextual interpretation, introduce a notion of ‘usefulness’ of IT and show how privacy is guaranteed by design.
- Blockchain. Decentralisation has quickly become a buzzword. ‘Dweb’ is the new, distributed web. Blockchain is a key technology in this arena. We publish four studies on Blockchain, Bitcoin and its relation to Perspectives.
- Perspectives on Data. On the Web, money is accrued at the data layer, owned by companies. Even though the underlying HTTP protocol is decentralised, the data layer is not. Blockchain and Perspectives offer alternatives.
- Perspectives on the Runtime. The core of the system is solidly based on logical theory. It deploys a number of well established techniques from Artificial Intelligence, such as forward chaining, backward chaining and truth maintenance.
- Perspectives on Economy. Like Blockchain, Perspectives is about creating a new, open market, too. But Perspectives introduces no funny money. Perspectives as the third way, between thin and fat protocols.
As long as we haven’t written it up properly, read our post on Perspectives as a Protocol.
