HELIOS: A Context-aware Distributed Social Networking Framework

Objective

The HELIOS project will design, implement and validate a state-of-the-art, peer-to-peer federated social media network that addresses the dynamic nature of human communications in three dimensions- contextual, spatial and temporal- while providing all necessary means to ensure the highest level of trust and privacy.

HELIOS implements a user-friendly solution for creating and managing social networks. Its core scope is to facilitate democratization of content production, promotion and monetization.

HELIOS will also reduce development cost and deployment complexity of any social media application built on top of it. Implemented technologies and tools are following a modular strategy which ensures continuous development beyond the scope of the project, yet maintaining basic features of security and robustness. As a unique value proposition, the project will overcome the closed ecosystem stigma and will re-define the term “social media platform” by creating a foundation for co-operating social networking services. The novel distributed context-layered model in which different types of services (private and public) can form symbiotic existence.
