Recently there has been quite a number of independent research activities that investigated the potentialities of integrating social networking concepts into Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The resulting paradigm, named Social Internet of Things (SIoT), has the potential to support novel applications and networking services for the IoT in more effective and efficient ways. In this context, the main contributions of this paper are the following: (i) we identify appropriate policies for the… Expand

SIoTPredict: A Framework for Predicting Relationships in the Social Internet of Things
TLDR
This work proposes a framework, namely SIoTPredict, which includes three stages: i) collection of raw movement data of IoT devices, ii) generating temporal sequence networks of the SIoT, and iii) predicting relationships among IoT devices which are likely to occur. Expand
tNote: A Social Network of Vehicles under Internet of Things
TLDR
This paper instantiate IoT to define a social network of vehicles, tNote, where vehicles can share transport related safety, efficiency, and comfort notes with each other, and defines the tNote message structure following the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) standard. Expand
Social Internet of Things: Interoperability and Autonomous Computing Challenges
TLDR
The basis of SIoT is presented, such as definitions, main roles, key relationships, and structures, and the major benefits and challenges ofSIoT are discussed by reviewing the recent advancements and state-of-the-art works in this emerging field. Expand
Social monitoring and social analysis in internet of things virtual networks
TLDR
This paper presents the social approach that the COSMOS project introduces in order to achieve enhanced services like discovery, recommendation and sharing between Things enriched with social properties, and discusses two main components supporting the socialization of Things: Social Monitoring and Social Analysis. Expand
Socialite: A Flexible Framework for Social Internet of Things
TLDR
This work develops the semantic models for the Social Internet of Things including device types and their capabilities, users and their relationships, and rules leveraging such models, and demonstrates the concept by building a real system called Socialite that integrates various devices from different manufacturers with different functional interfaces.
