Research Line 12: Social Networking and applications
The Web from a repository of information has become a virtual space where people can meet, discuss and cooperatively produce information. Moreover it is also developing toward a Web of services, where service providers of users themselves can make available services and applications addressing different aspects of access to information and interpersonal (group) communications. This can be very important to favour eInclusion. In addition to living in an intelligent environment, people can be immersed in a virtual space where human intelligence may be available to help them. A carefully planned cooperation of machine intelligence in the environment and human intelligence in the network can be an invaluable support for inclusion of people.
