Milus Co., Ltd.
Turn the world’s smartphones into personal data centers for personal data storage and AI processing!!
Protecting privacy through optimal data placement at the edge and cloud and AI processing distribution while reducing massive power consumption in increasingly large-scale data centers
April Dream: Milus’ dream is for people around the world, including developing countries, to have their personal data stored on their smartphones, including their vitals, mental lives, etc., from birth to the present, safely and without any burden, and used not only for personal use but also for social use. The goal is to create a system in which data can be collected instantly and the world can respond quickly when the next pandemic occurs. To achieve this, it is necessary to develop rules supported by cutting-edge technology, but above all, it is important to foster a sense of trust so that each individual is convinced and willing to provide valuable personal data. Deep tech startup Milus collaborates with like-minded people to realize the dream of a new data-driven society that respects the individual.
Our company supports April Dream, which aims to make April 1st a day to share dreams.
This press release is a dream of Milus Co., Ltd.
[Milous’ dream: What a personal data-driven world will look like in 2030] Milus Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Sapporo), a startup certified by Hokkaido University, aims to realize a personal data-driven society as shown in Figure 1 by 2030. We are active.
For example, the effectiveness of data utilization as a countermeasure against pandemics, which are humanity’s enemies, became clear during the recent coronavirus pandemic, but in Japan we were forced to deal with a large burden of data and faced barriers to collecting personal data. . In order to quickly collect data and take countermeasures when a pandemic occurs, it would be desirable to have a society in which individuals collect and store daily data during normal times, and in times of emergency, they can proactively provide data based on rules. think. To achieve this, it is essential to foster a sense of trust, but in the current situation where information leaks occur one after another even in institutions that are supposed to be trusted, it is natural for people to become defensive. To face this issue, it is necessary to make full use of cutting-edge technology as well as system design. Milus would like to tackle this challenge with the technology we have.
[Image 1:×720.jpg] Figure 1 Realizing Milus’ dream of a personal data-driven society [Approaches to make the dream a reality] Milus would like to make the above dream come true using the following approach.
(1) Savings Box(R) app: Personal data acquired by wearable sensors such as smartphone cameras, GPS, and wristbands is stored encrypted and signed in the personal data store (PDS) in the smartphone with date and time. . This reduces the risk of data tampering and maintains the authenticity of the data itself. For example, you can improve your health by taking photos of medicines and health foods with your smartphone every day, automatically collecting data on blood pressure, stress, sleep, body temperature, etc. with your wristband, and storing it in a health storage box (R) along with your medical examination results. Not only can it be used for other purposes, but it can also be left as evidence in case something happens, such as a work-related accident or medical accident. Additionally, you can earn points by providing your data to institutions that require it, with your consent, through the Mipal platform.
(2) Mipal Platform: The data stored in the Health Box(R) can be provided on the initiative of the individual based on requests from various users. The Health Box (R) has a function that provides the Health Information Passbook (R), which is information such as “what kind of data is stored,” to Mipal Cloud if the person consents. The cloud can match the requests of data utilization institutions with the Health Information Passbook (R) and recommend data usage destinations via the Health Box (R). Of course, you can also find a provider on your own from the list without submitting your passbook. Once the recipient has been decided, use your smartphone to check the provision conditions (recipient, type of provided data, storage period for the recipient (deletetion request possible), (anonymous) reuse possible, whether points will be awarded, etc.). If the person consents, the data will be automatically sent to the recipient. Currently, the authenticity of the Health Information Passbook (R) is determined using the signature of a certification authority, which is a trust anchor, but in the future, we plan to use blockchain to share information as well.
(3) Virtual sensor MIRUWS(R) MX series: A virtual sensor is a virtual sensor in cyber space that can be used in any processing format, such as smartphones or the cloud. Of course, physical sensors such as wristbands are necessary, and the performance functionality is determined by the combination of these sensors, the PCS (Physical Cyber ​​System). The currently available MIRUWS(R) M0 is installed in a health storage box(R) and can store photos of meals, food labels, prescriptions, etc. with signatures on a smartphone (PDS) along with date/time and location information. The wristband is used to mainly measure steps, pulse rate, etc., while the M2 uses an
electrocardiogram sensor (sticky/belt/electrocardiogram bra) to visualize emotions, stress, etc. on a smartphone and store them with a signature. M3, which is scheduled to be released in the first half of 2024, can be used in combination with a wristband to visualize high-precision continuous blood pressure, emotions, stress, sleep, and apnea syndrome risk and store smartphones. Looking towards 2030, it is thought that there will be significant advances in AI processing power and lower power consumption at the edge of smartphones, IoT devices, etc., and optimization such as processing personal big data on the Edge and collective big data on the Cloud is expected. I think I’ll move on.
(4) International standardization/patent: In the personal data-driven society of 2030, cross-border data distribution will be important. The data distribution currently used in the Mipal platform (Figure 2) uses the Mipal container by file transfer, but the international standard for sensor data distribution is the international IoT data container structure called IEC63430, which was standardized by Japan. There are standards. Therefore, the PDS subcommittee of the Secure IoT Platform Council, a domestic consortium, is currently considering loading personal data onto this container along with usage rules that the individual has consented to. We would like to contribute to the realization of a society where personal data is distributed fairly and safely. The basic patent for the Mipal Platform has been granted in Japan, the United States, and Europe, and if it is adopted for international standardization, it will be widely provided on a non-exclusive basis based on the patent rules of the International Standards Organization.

Our company will be exhibiting at the Pharma IT & Digital Health Expo (, which will be held at the East Building of Tokyo Big Sight from April 17th (Wednesday) to April 19th (Friday). Additionally, on April 19th (Friday) from 15:40-16:00, I will be giving a lecture at the Pharma IT Venture & Startup Seminar entitled “Measuring the effectiveness of medication acquisition in real life using non-invasive continuous emotional blood pressure estimation.” We look forward to using various opportunities, including this exhibition, to discuss the realization of our dreams with everyone who is interested in our dreams.
“April Dream” is a project by PR TIMES in which companies broadcast their dreams that they hope to eventually come true on April 1st. We are seriously aiming to make this dream come true.
