Personal data and AI in the hands of people
In a world where smartphones are ubiquitous; where more and more devices are becoming “smart” – everyone is a digital citizen. This means every action creates a data point. These data points are currently being harvested by other companies and in many cases, without your knowledge. This has to change.
We believe the future is an exciting one; Artificial Intelligence (AI), Digital Assistants, Virtual Reality (VR) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are advancing rapidly. They offer great new conveniences and benefits. However, this exciting new future cannot be realised if we, as digital citizens, are not in control.
Citizenme aims to liberate your personal data and make AI accessible to everyone. This means putting data and the power of AI in the hands of people, not just organisations. Over time, this will become a valuable tool for everyone. It will support decision making, life management, health and personal development.
We are at the start of this journey. In 2016 we aim to unlock some of the value of your personal data. When data is centred around people it becomes so much more powerful. Sharing it with brands anonymously will produce financial value for you. Furthermore, your data will begin to unlock interesting personal insights that reveal more about your digital self. Citizenme has been working in partnership with University of Cambridge Psychometric Centre and University of Sheffield Open Data Science Institute to create cutting edge AI that works on your behalf.
Welcome to Citizenme. Empowering you with your data.
Our business model, your privacy
Our service is free to use. In many cases that would mean you are the product. This is not the case with Citizenme. This is how we work:
You're in control
Citizenme is a place for you to take control of your data and discover what it says about you. All this is available for free. You are in control of your data. We do not sell it or use it for any other purpose.
If you choose to exchange your data with an organisation (green or red tiles) you also keep a copy. This data will be added to your account and will be used to create personalised (for you only) insights in the future. The more data you add the better the insights.
For businesses, Citizenme is a data analytics and market research platform. With this type of activity, your data always remains anonymised and aggregated. The data is only ever used for research purposes.
You earn, we earn
So we can continue to help you gain value from your personal data, we charge a transaction fee (to the brand – not you) for activities with cash rewards. If you like using Citizenme you can support us by simply completing the green tiles in the app
