Exploiting social networks and social graphs

SocIoS unlocks the potential of social networks. Social networking sites contain an ever growing, increasingly relevant volume of multimedia content from ordinary users as well as professional sources. This mass of unstructured content is difficult to exploit – in terms of search, organisation, validation and recommendation.

How can businesses get easier access to social media content and related social graphs? SocIoS develops technology, which enables topical search across eight social networks, media item ranking/recommendation, event detection, social contact filtering, translation, sentiment analysis and IPR-handling. A journalism application provides these capabilities via a tailored user interface in order to support the process of topical journalistic research.

As a user partner Deutsche Welle developed a journalism scenario and related requirements, tested the resulting journalism application and conducted dissemination activities.

The project runs from Sep 2010 – Feb 2013
