Hazy’s Entity Hierarchy Structure is now Open Source

By on 11 Sep 2018.

At Hazy we admire developers that spend their time creating amazing solutions and then sharing them with the world, so that young innovative startups can use it to develop new and iterative platforms to tackle current issues and challenges.

Without a collective commitment to a sustainable open source ecosystem, innovation would be stifled and the development of new processes and ideas would take much longer. To guarantee the future of the open source community and its collaborative nature it's now up to the growing number of startups and scale-ups to follow in the footsteps of open source pioneers. Which is why here at Hazy we've decided it's our turn to share something, hopefully, useful and give back to the community.

Today, we are excited to announce the launch of Hazy's public resources repository and open-sourcing of our entity hierarchy structure.

Currently, our public resources repository contains the following resources:

We hope that the visual representation of our hierarchy will be of use to not only the data science and developer communities, but also for any professionals dealing with sensitive data.

As we attempt to drive a commitment in both the public and private sectors towards an ethical, sustainable and responsible use of data, collaboration will be key. By sharing insights and knowledge we want to change the way individuals and enterprises think about their customers' data - no longer playing fast and loose, but approaching data handling in a more structured and responsible manner.

Our hope is that by providing such resources to the wider community, we can help speed up the development of privacy-aware technologies and help improve understanding of the solutions that Hazy and the wider sector will be developing.
