Open Technology Ecosystem (OTE)

DECENTRIALIZED AUTONOMOUS
INDUSTRY FRAMEWORK

The Foundation for an Intelligent Industry

THE POTENTIAL TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND FEED 1 BILLION PEOPLE A HEALTHY PROTEIN MEAL EVERY DAY

When environmental benefits or hazards are discovered, information flows to the ecosystem layer where local communities are alerted and change can be enacted where needed. Via the feedback loops, governing bodies and industry leaders can be brought in to address systemic concerns. Data would not be available to the other layers without the IoT physical layer. Ports, ships, intermediaries, and supermarkets will be fitted with internet-of-things connected devices to communicate all the variables that need to be collected and analyzed to ensure proper supply chain management. Kicking this data up to the people layer gives everyone the bird's eye view they need to make better decisions in the industry.

The OTE as defined here provides a model for how various industries can better self-regulate for the benefit of their consumers and the environment. Such a model will become increasingly important as the world looks for ways to tackle environmental crises while offering regenerative solutions, greatly increased yields, quality and transparency for a market to support these practices.

Informed by an Integral approach we view this emerging technology as an evolutionary aspect of human civilization.  When human interaction is included we start to see the Internet of Everything (IoE), a collaborative global "brain" and nervous system that has the potential to positively transform society and its relationship to the physical world.

OTE framework is the solution

The coherence.software Open Technology Ecosystem (OTE) offers stakeholders governance, advanced collaboration, decision-making tools, and open standards for innovation. Designed as a seamless twenty-first-century intelligent infrastructure, the OTE will connect local fisheries, communities, and regional ecosystem development programs with the Internet of Things (IoT) to scale global traceability of seafood quality. Stakeholders, research institutions, and consumers will be able to access a comprehensive system as a dynamic knowledge-based gateway to the IoT.

Users will have access to Big Data and analytics to develop predictive algorithms that can increase productivity and reduce the marginal cost of producing and delivering a full range of products and services.

The OTE breaks down an industry’s needs according to key layers and components. Key industry processes are mapped and their relationship to each layer can be fully understood.

Open industry-wide schema

An open and collaboratively developmed schema can become the single source of truth for industry applications. A unified schema provides a central location, where all available data is described. The schema will evolve over time as a community resource to facilitate broader adoption of open-data practices.
  • Architected for the Internet of Things (IoT)

  • Seafood industry-wide naming conventions

  • Advanced syntax based API

  • Interoperable performance optimzed ledger

 

 

Interoperable Architecture  

The Decentralized Autonomous Industry Framework (DAI) breaks down an industry’s needs according to key layers and components. Key industry processes are mapped and their relationship to each layer can be fully understood.

People Layer
The seafood industry DAI begins with the people layer. This layer incorporates all governing bodies, consumers, and retailers. All of these stakeholders have a bearing on how fish are caught, transported, and sold.
Business Process Layer
People then interact with the business process layer which is composed of user-facing software. In this case, ERP systems for managing orders, software for managing exchanges, and software for decision making.
Transport Logistics Layer
The governing bodies will use enhanced decision-making software to create and update regulations which are a key part of the transport logistics layer. Also contained in this layer are all the low-level components that report on catch location, shipment status, and other business-essential tracking data. Each component here gathers and cross-checks data from the industry cloud layer.
Industry Cloud Layer

The industry cloud layer is a catch-all location for the massive amounts of data necessary for a trustworthy supply chain. It consists of databases for fish names and types, audio/video recordings, certification records, and data exchanged with other services via API calls. This is where the Seafood Commons open inter-operable schema creates the foundation layer for industry-wide IoT innovation.

Geolocation Layer and Feeback Loops
Map and virtual/augmented reality information via the geolocation layer. The feedback loops layer is incorporated here as this information is used to determine the environmental impact of business and consumer practices on the world’s oceans.
IoT Physical Layer and Ecosystems

When environmental benefits or hazards are discovered, information flows to the ecosystem layer where local communities are alerted and change can be enacted where needed. Via the feedback loops, governing bodies and industry leaders can be brought in to address systemic concerns.

Data would not be available to the other layers without the IoT physical layer. Ports, ships, intermediaries, and supermarkets will be fitted with internet-of-things connected devices to communicate all the variables that need to be collected and analyzed to ensure proper supply chain management. Kicking this data up to the people layer gives everyone the bird’s eye view they need to make better decisions in the industry.
