The universe of Intrepid applications is large, part 2

The fifth post from Girish Altekar on Intrepid technology and applications*. The introductory post is here and all our re-published intrepid posts are here.


Here is the second half of the previous post. Let us know if you can think of other uses.

Covid Passport – A Covid Passport Intrepid would have been easy to manage and use. Only access to a central verification database would have been required. https://lnkd.in/g-ZFbNfe

Driver’s License – When you are required to provide your driver’s license number to applications. Using a Bluetooth or NFC receiver can enable the delivery of the license anywhere. We are aware there are large State govt. efforts to create smartphone-based DL systems. https://lnkd.in/gjCZ68Vc

Home/House – The House Intrepid encapsulates all the features of a house so you can apply for a mortgage, sell, insure, make a claim against. Ideally this Intrepid is created when the architectural plans of a house are created, and then transmitted to every subsequent owner. When remodeled, the house Intrepid can be easily updated. No need to depend on 3rd party home descriptions that are generally riddled with inaccuracies. https://lnkd.in/gyR5G67T

Vehicle Info – The Vehicle Intrepid captures your vehicle data to assist you in selling, insuring, and providing vehicle data to registration, repair, and other applications. https://lnkd.in/gSmTXDQK

Over time we will create many more vocabularies to describe more facets of our lives and the data associated with them. When Intrepids are accepted by applications, the transaction time, and the effort to complete your daily tasks will be vastly minimized. 

We are interested in your feedback. https://lnkd.in/gm3fAPhP

The fourth post from Girish Altekar on Intrepid technology and applications*. The introductory post is here and all our re-published intrepid posts are here.


In previous posts, we introduced 2 applications, resume and travel, to introduce the process, and to demonstrate how data ownership using a structured format enables rapid reuse. Here are some more uses (split over 2 posts). Let us know if you can think of other uses.

Login – Admittedly not the most compelling of Intrepid applications.  There are many browser or non-browser-based solutions, including recently announced Fido based password-less login by Apple. Nevertheless, the use of a login Intrepid is quick and enables multifactor authentication including biometrics in the same easy private process. https://lnkd.in/gWay5-zD

Personal Contact – Your personal name, address, phone, email data. https://lnkd.in/g9vHJ8un

Business Card – Your Intrepid Business card. You may need these when you are filling out a loan application, for instance, and are required to provide this information in ten different forms. https://lnkd.in/g6Jkzdau

Credit Card – Yes, many browsers scrape this information and there are e-wallets that attempt to store all your cards but creating Credit Card Intrepids for your multiple payment methods enable clear, unambiguous, and rapid use of credit cards without the necessity to hand this data to an intermediary. Credit Card Intrepids also enable rapid update of autopay data should an existing card be compromised and replaced. https://lnkd.in/g3kw_HWj

Bank Account – If you wish to avoid the 3-4% surcharge on credit card payments, you may use your Bank Account Intrepid for direct bank account payments. Other payment mechanisms haven’t been created yet, but the same process can apply to any online payment system, including crypto. https://lnkd.in/gx34zBdg

Over time we will create many more vocabularies to describe more facets of our lives and the data associated with them. When Intrepids are accepted by applications, the transaction time, and the effort to complete your daily tasks will be vastly minimized.
