Description

As part of Mozilla Festival 2017, we are inviting you to join us in Databox Hackathon event as a joint summit hosted under the Mozilla Festival pre-week events and a BBC R&D community event.

Databox, started in October 2016 with generous funding by EPSRC, envisions an open-source personal networked device, augmented by cloud-hosted services, that collates, curates, and mediates access to an individual’s personal data by verified and audited, locally-executable, third party applications and services. The Databox will form the heart of an individual’s personal data processing ecosystem, providing a platform for managing secure access to data and enabling authorised third parties to provide the owner with authenticated services, including services that may be accessed while roaming outside the home environment. You can find out more about the project on http://www.databoxproject.uk/ and view the in-progress code at https://github.com/me-box/.

We will present the public release of a working open source Databox platform, which can be run on any device capable of running Docker containers. We endeavour to provide support for ARM devices such as the Raspberry Pi 3 for this release. This initial release has basic data collection support through mobile sensing libraries and selected APIs, provides basic data flow policing and privacy policy enforcement, and supports installation and operation of simple personal data processing apps. At this event we will briefly introduce and demo the Databox to you, then we hope to engage with security & privacy enthusiasts, data visualisation & analytics fans, and potential app developers to begin building a community and ecosystem around the Databox. We’re open to contributions of all kinds, from improvements to core components, to helping you integrate your favourite IoT devices, to brainstorming what apps and devices you want to see the Databox support!

The full schedule will be set in late September.
