Role in the Project: Project partner/ WP leader

Description: The project aims to develop the DESMOS platform, a framework for the interconnection of smart infrastructures and the use of mobile and computing applications to provide a secure environment for citizens, with emphasis on tourists. The platform will be based on participatory cooperation between people and infrastructure, implementing a framework for the protection of tourists through timely incident reporting, adaptation of interconnected infrastructures in emergency situations, and support for assistance through the actions of volunteers and local authorities.

The project sets the following high-level objectives:

  • Fast, timely and accurate notifications in case of emergencies (e.g. allergies, medical incidents, etc.), sending at the same time all contextual information needed to help authorities coordinate and assist people, protecting the privacy of the monitored people.
  • Anonymous reporting of incidents using crowdsourcing, with a special focus on incidents involving tourists, e.g. thefts.
  • Adaptability of services, devices and people to respond to incidents and protect citizens/tourists.

In order to realize the abovementioned objectives, the platform will follow a systematic approach for interconnecting people, services and devices using:

  1. Applications in mobile and wearable devices that will be used by:
    1. Volunteers, who will be timely informed for incidents happening nearby, providing at the same time contextual information about the type of help needed, the current situation and suggestions on how to react.
    2. Tourists, who will be able to connect with volunteers and services of the visited area, increasing the feeling of safety and promoting their participation in the safe ecosystem of people and devices.
  2. Smart Spots across the area (e.g. municipality) that will be able to listen for reports and requests for help and further propagate them in the local intelligent network, aiming at finding the best solution to mitigate the emergency situation.
  3. Fusion and interpretation of heterogeneous events and information through semantic reasoning and decision making for supporting real-time alerts and notification of responsible entities.

EUNOMIA: UsEr-oriented, secUre, trustful & deceNtralised sOcial MediA

Innovation Action:Trustful and Secure Data Ecosystem for Social Media and Media

Subtopic A: Content verification

Period: 11/2018 (est) ~ 2021

Total Cost: 3.049.763,75 €

Grant agreement: No. 825171, 2018-2021

Role in the Project:  Project partner/ WP leader

Description: EUNOMIA is a fully decentralised, intermediary-free and open-source solution for addressing three key challenges:

  • Which social media user is the original source of a piece of information?
  • How this information has spread and been modified in an information cascade?
  • How likely is the information to be trustworthy?

EUNOMIA employs the human-as-a-trust-sensor paradigm, which actively encourages democratic citizen participation by allowing voting on content trustworthiness and influencing the reputation of content generators and sharers. It combines information cascade verification with information trustworthiness scoring, benefitting from blockchain technology to ensure transparency of the scoring process and that information has not been modified in a cascade. EUNOMIA follows the design principles of open-source intermediary-free decentralised social media. It empowers social media users by providing them with tools to improve the quality of information sharing, which in turn can responsibilise them in their engagement with social media. Users will be more certain about the provenance and quality of the content they consume, while the media will be more credible sources of news dissemination, thus challenging the accumulation of power in social media intermediaries, such as Facebook and Twitter. EUNOMIA’s versatility will be evaluated on three use-cases: Social journalism, traditional media and an existing decentralised social media community.
