    The internet of the future should be more resilient, trustworthy and sustainable. 6 The success of the Internet lied in free speech, open innovation & Interoperability APPROACH: Leverage semantic web and blockchain assets to built as a distinct added value for the next generation internet: -Trustworthy data and services exchange -Trustworthy content handling However Growing concerns that openness, trustworthiness, privacy and security are being threatened by the quest for high performance and profit Multiple threat have been identified when people interact with online services : ⚫ Unknown provenance of information ⚫ Anonimity in favor of criminal activities ⚫ Personal privacy violation & personal data exploitation ⚫ Biases in AI algorithms ⚫ No fair rewards for quality contribution ⚫ Spread of fake news ⚫ Centralisation of power Existing problems of misuse of information can soon achieve even more dangerous level ! OBJECTIVE: Develop a new software technologies stack based on this approach for different application domains e.g Online media, e-Education, e-Health, e-Government, e-Commerce, e-Tourism, e-Infrastructures, Industry 4.0 entertainment, and so forth.
