Groups

We concentrate on media that informs, unifies, and defines society such as news, sports, and public events. These are characterized by simultaneity, synchronicity, immersion, multiple perspectives, and new ways of framing discussions as stories. We design structures that allow for civic participation in media creation and distribution yet retain the editorial imperative to create a shared reality based on trust and truth.

Our current emphasis is on validating broadcast television news and creating applications that make it easier to broaden ones views than it is to remain in a bubble.  This is based on "Unspoken News," an AI-driven engine for revealing cues such as emotions, peripheral text, set layout and other non-literal influencers. This extends our fully functional video recorder and analysis engine, Superglue. Related work also provides for adding confidence indications to messages that one passes on.
