Product

The main product of the institute is the Self-Framework and the Self Profile app, built on top of this framework. The Self-Framework is an ecosystem of solutions that connects data owners, data issuers, and data consumers. It creates a platform for individuals to aggregate their data and use it to make informed decisions, reach goals, and assist in daily endeavors, ultimately improving their quality of life.

The Self-Framework encompasses data aggregation, third-party data integration, encryption, storage, analytics, user interface, and more. It aims to promote the adoption of decentralized identity solutions and pave the way for a more efficient and equitable digital landscape by creating a secure, privacy-preserving, and user-centric solution for managing digital identities and human data.


Self-Framework Main Components

  • Self Ontology - data schema for the self profile instance

  • Self Chain - proprietary blockchain platform.

  • Self Profile - user interface for accessing Self-Framework services.

  • Self-AI - utilizes Large Language Models (LLMs) and fuzzy ontology for data analysis.

  • Self Public API and SDK for third-party data integration.

What data can you store in Self Profile

At SRI, we believe that users can greatly benefit from aggregating their data into a single platform. We view human data as a continuum, and isolating one area makes the picture incomplete. By bringing together data from various aspects of life, we can uncover deeper insights, make more meaningful connections, and truly harness the power of data.
