Relative Calling System to allow the user to receive only selected calls based on collaboration, context and configurations.

In today's busy world, collaboration is the key to stay connected, share information, do business and get assistance. Collaboration has its own pros and cons and we need to get maximum benefits from it.

For eg. Making calls is one of the fastest mode to reach out, collaborate with some one. Phones have become an inseparable part of our life. Its usage has advantages like communicating some urgent news, getting help in emergency etc. But on the other hand, it has also introduced some drawbacks like disturbance during important work, unwanted calls for marketing etc.

Thus we need to strike a balance to get the most from the collaboration through our calls. We need a solution which would let the right callers reach us and also save our time from the unwanted calls.

We propose a system which would allow the user to receive only selected calls based on collaboration, context and configurations. Thus there would be a layer between the callers and the callee which would have a certain filter capability based on various algorithms. These algorithms would be based on social connections, collaboration history, pattern analytics, sentiment analytics etc.

This would enable the callee to auto select only the required calls thus leading to many advantages like -
1. Saving the prestigious time of users by catering to only essential calls
2. Avoiding unnecessary hassles due to nuisance calls
3. Improving productivity of the users
4. Callers would also benefit by being able to reach out to only interested parties, thus saving efforts.

Provisions:
1. Methods supporting end user to receive selective calls based on analysis performed to check the relativity reference of the calling party.

2. Further including sentiment analysis of the callers involved and past history to derive intelligence to decide connection with the calling party.

3. Based on above, the analysis would be performed on calling party connections, collaboration and collaboration strength with the end user .

Generally, all our required connections exist within our address books. These are the known contacts which we have been interacting with in the present or past.

But there are many unknown contacts which try to reach us every day based on their needs. The user cannot afford to entertain all such calls, given his/ her busy schedule. Thus, for any call coming from an unknown number, we need to do some background checks based on :
- 'Connections' - Am I connected to this person directly or indirectly through some contact links ?
- 'Collaborations' - Have I interacted with this person in the past through mails or in-person meets or Social media etc. ?
- 'Business Need' - Does the person belong to some organisation, which I have been trying to connect with for some work ?

Given any of above checks are passed, the call will then do some more checks as below :
- 'Collaborat...
