This project was a key component for my Ph.D. dissertation
Using swarm theory nomenclature, I devised a bench-marking prototype to develop a swarm to forage open-sources of personal information and had the ability to map Google+, Twitter, Facebook, driver's license, voter records, and a myriad of other sources to 105 personal information components.
To accomplish this, an Interface was developed to define the rules and expected operations for each forager. A base forager was defined and used a foundation upon which all other foragers were established.
Each forager was matched to a data-source. Within each forager, the specific personal information items were extracted from the response and evaluated. If the data was found, it was aggregated for further analysis.
The entire process took less than a minute per person.
