“… a proven stimulus of innovation —  the meeting of unlike minds.”
Thomas Stewart, 2001

For the better part of twenty years, David Oliver and David Dickinson have had a major back-burner project, one that has the potential to change profoundly the way in which people manage and search for relevant information. When they were joined recently by systems alchemist David Alexander, that audacious ambition took on a new momentum.

What it does

The i-Space Navigator helps people simplify and make-meaning from the overwhelming and complex array of information (health, social services, housing, finance, leisure etc), necessary to manage their lives. 

When people are able to effectively manage the interrelationship of information their health, well-being and overall quality of life is improved (salutogenesis).   

How it does this

It does this by visually arranging the references to different content sources, organising them them both manually and automatically, aligning with the  changing needs of each owner. This is achieved both manually and with the help of artificial intelligence.

This device-neutral application provides each user with an independent experience layer, arranging the pointers to where the relevant information can be found, organising and accessing them both manually and automatically with artificial intelligence. 

With no more than twelve items of information on screen at any one time, the navigational archetype enables just short of three million information references, navigating to the selected on in just five steps. This massive capacity affords huge redundancy, meaning that navigation to content sources can be replicated and categorised many times over, providing a highly intuitive and personal information management experience.

It is supported by a personal transferable permissions management system and secure personal information space.

i-Space Navigator Charter

As the Charter for the i-Space Navigator demonstrates, this is not a typical commercial project. We believe that the future of information sharing in the public sector will be through organisations or intermediary agencies preparing data for people in the way that they each need to receive it. Therefore the costs of providing each person with the i-Space Navigator freely would be borne by the information provider.
