BIG DATA Functionality

Skill suggestion…continually add detail to my user profile that can interact automatically with internet (cloud) data.

I don’t like the big boys ( Google Facebook) messing around with my data. I also am not happy with the amount of time I spend on the Internet generally. Too often my searches are too vague and result in non-answers or suggestions that demand more education on my part. As an example I have no need to know how to setup a household budget…i just need to know if I should buy a bicycle or not. The machine should be able to anaylize my finances, age, weight, mobility habits etc…and combine these variables with the latest and greatest information available on the internet. Mycroft should without much more input on my part cough up a suggestion such as this…

“Based on information in your user profile…I recommend purchasing a bicycle ($104) that is currently available for online purchase. Would you like me to process this transaction?”

I am cool with a machine managing my data. Yea or nay is reserved for myself.

Third party modules of expertise that can interact with mycroft should be encouraged.
Say, for example secure banking or financial planning modules that will allow for preauthorised transactions to occur on the mycroft users behalf. Or how about an (AI?) module created by Tourism Tennessee that interacts with my user profile…understands my location, demographic, available funds, schedule and recommends to my mycroft a bus trip to Memphis on the third week of September…
