Conceptualized as a potential component for my Ph.D. dissertation
Using swarm theory nomenclature, I sketched out the foundation for a bench-marking prototype to develop a swarm to forage open-sources of personal information and would have 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 would be developed to define the rules and expected operations for each forager. A base forager would be defined and used a foundation upon which all other foragers were established.
Each forager would be matched to a data-source. Within each forager, the specific personal information items would be extracted from the response and evaluated. If the data was found, it would be aggregated for further analysis.
