HAT R & D projects

Government-funded research projects on the HAT:

 

HATlogoThe HAT is a multi-sided platform for personal data developed through the HAT (Hub-of-all-Things) Project, a £1.2m RCUK Digital Economy-funded project involving six universities — Cambridge, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Surrey, Warwick, West of England. The HAT platform enables individuals to collect their own personal data through IoT-enabled objects and to control and combine it in any way into data ‘mash-ups’ that can bee shared in a privacy-preserving manner, to help us make better and more informed decisions in our lives and allow companies to offer us more personalised and customised offerings.

Harriet logoLed by WMG at the University of Warwick, the goal of the RCUK-funded HARRIET project is to deploy the HAT into real households and then develop a Resource Integration and Enabling Tool (HARRIET). HARRIET aims to assist individuals to better understand their household consumption behaviour and make ‘smarter’ decisions to plan and live better lives based on their own data stored on the HAT.

HALLlogo HAT Living Labs (HALL) focuses on Business Model Innovation within the HAT ecosystem. Funded through a £1.2m Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) research grant to the Universities of Warwick, Cambridge, Surrey and West of England, HALL is essentially a ‘sandbox’ within the HAT ecosystem, where real users of HATs – individuals and firms who have volunteered to participate in an experimental environment – would exchange data and co-create innovations as well as test out business and economic models of data exchanges.

ACCEPT

Researchers and practitioners have acknowledged that human-related risks are among the most important factors in cybersecurity, e.g. an IBM report (2014) shows that over 95% of security incidents involved “human errors”. Led by the University of Surrey, the ACCEPT (Addressing Cybersecurity and Cybercrime via a co-Evolutionary aPproach to reducing human-relaTed risks) project aims to develop a framework to analyse the behavioural co-evolution of cybersecurity and cybercrime ecosystems, and effectively influence behaviours of a range of actors in ecosystems in order to reduce human-related risks.
