Introducing the Hub-of-All-Things (HAT) and the HAT Ecosystem


The HAT microserver is an individual person’s own database wrapped with microservices

Your Data


These microservices are little pieces of computer code that the person controls. The code give permissions and instructions for giving data and accepting new data

People who have a HAT are HAT owners. They own the rights to the data in the HAT microserver database and control the microservices

Your HAT App

A HAT owner can execute the code with a touch of a button on the HAT app, a special type of app that allows the HAT owner to operate the microservices in the HAT

HAT owners can bring the data they have on the Internet into their HATs with Data Plugs. Plugs are third party services that help HAT owners grab a copy of their data from other companies and push it into their HATs. Data plugs do not ever see or hold HAT data.

Your HAT App

Since it is the individual that control their HAT, it means the HAT microserver can act like a universal user account, or a private data account for apps, but with the individual in control. Data is given from the HAT through a data debit.

Your Data

Third-party App


Previously, individuals interact with apps directly and give their data away each time. Although they get a good service in return, they do not get to keep their data and so they cannot re-use or re-share with other apps. Third-party App

Instead, the apps share the data with others or amongst themselves, with their consent


With a HAT micro server, HAT owners get to keep the data and can re-use and re-share the data with other apps Third-party App

Apps can build in the ability for the individual to operate the microservices in the HAT within their own app

Third-party App


Businesses like this because they can ask the individual, their own customers, for more data instead of asking third parties. All they have to do is give their customers a HAT

The HAT Microserver is also equipped with a Smart HAT Engine

Algorithms / Analytic Tools

WRITE DATA

The Smart HAT Engine can take on new AI tools like algorithms, analytics and bots into the HAT. These tools have been pre-trained, and do not take any data out of the HAT.


These tools, once installed into the Smart HAT engine, analyses HAT data and create insights and new data that only goes back into the HAT. Tools make the HAT smarter

The HAT owner can share the new data with other apps the normal way like all other HAT data (through a data debit)

HATs are disruptive because companies (and everyone, really) need machine learning, predictive analytics, and personalisation (i.e. AI) if they want to compete.

Traditional Model Third-party App

Ai Corporations

Third-party App

The traditional AI model takes app data some place else. It is analysed and the intelligence it creates stay with the company that analysed it. E.g. Alexa or Watson or Google. So if anyone else wants that intelligence, they would have to go and ask these companies or create it themselves.


With HATs, instead of getting AI from large tech companies, they can get it from their own customers, if they give them a HAT. Tools

Data Scientists that install their tools into HATs get rewarded with royalties when an app uses the data or insight generated

Over time, more plugs and apps give more data that will fuel more tools that would will create more data that will fuel more apps!

HATDeX is the commercial organisation that built services around the open sourced HAT so that organisations can issue HATs to their customers and the data that individuals own can be moved around and ‘spent’ on personalisation, recommendations and insights.

HAT Microservers commercial deployment is on HATDeX platform infrastructure


The HAT Accelerator catalyses new apps, tools and plugs through entrepreneurship and partnership programmes

HATDeX platform infrastructure

HATLAB is the centre for research, education and policy for HATs and the personal data economy

The HAT Community Foundation governs the whole ecosystem - the certification of tools, apps and plugs, legal terms and conditions and regulating good behaviour on the technology platform


The HAT ecosystem, architecture is a micro-economic engineering design and implementation that embodies technology, economic, legal and behavioural models coming together in an ecosystem to change the Internet

HATDeX platform

Our partners create tools, apps, plugs on the HATDeX platform in an open innovation environment using open sourced assets


The HAT was first created from an RCUK grant in 2013 with Professor Irene Ng as the lead. Since then, more than ÂŁ10m grant funding have been awarded to continue the research, as well as private investments into HATDeX for the commercial operation
