He is particularly fascinated by:
The objective of the thesis is to facilitate sharing and access to digital contents (photo, video, text…) produced within an SESN, through the definition of a adaptive distributed shared space. The data, the offered functions and the behavior of this shared space will be dynamically defined, according to the services provided by the participants of the SESN. For example, if a participant proposes a service that produces pictures of a certain quality (e.g. color pictures of more than 5 millions of pixels), the shared space will allow the users to know that such kind of pictures are available for consultation.
The space will ease the access to the pictures by hiding the invocation of the service that provides them. Some data may be private, or destined to a specific community of users. The services that provide these data will implement an authentication mecanism, which will be automatically inherited by the shared space. By frequently consulting the data produced by some users, or by annotating them favorably, the shared space will perform dynamic service recommendation, thus favoring the invocation of some services and limiting data traffic in the SESN (only the relevant data will be present in the shared space).
This shared space should be operational even in the case where no cellular network is permanently reachable. Using Wi-Fi in ad hoc mode (or in P2P mode) could be an alternative, by leveraging on Disruption-Tolerant Networking, or Opportunistic Networking, so as to ensure an end-to-end connectivity between the devices participating in the SESN.
