Abstract

This paper presents the architecture of an open social platform for mobile devices. This platform allows users to get access to all their data in web services and IoT devices easily, compute with them, and share them with their friends without losing data ownership to a third party. The key concepts include: (1) ThingPedia, an open-source crowd- sourced repository of interfaces and apps, (2) ThingTalk, a succinct rule-based language that allows people to share information stored in di erent web services and IoT devices, (3) ThingEngine, personal servers that execute ThingTalk apps on behalf of the users, and (4) Omlet, an open chat and messaging platform that does not own users' data.
