What is the main essence of our project.

Our organization is currently working on the development of virtual reality technology in the media space. One of the stages concerns the development of criteria for journalistic standards and media literacy when working with VR / AR and the use of this technology in the fight against the spread of fakes and disinformation.

Modern people are often faced with information that needs to be verified. The best way to see what is happening is with your own eyes. Using existing VR technologies, as well as some of the technological innovations we are working on, the user will have the opportunity to be at the epicentre of events. Imagine that you want to see for yourself what has happened in Bucha in Ukraine. Russian propaganda reports that this is a pre-arranged production and a fake. However, VR systems will allow you to be transferred to Bucha, where you will be able to see what is happening there with your own eyes, hear the comments of experts and immerse yourself in the essence of what is happening.

An ordinary text or a TV report will not convey the fullness of emotions, as VR technologies will do. The next stage in the development of this technology will allow the viewer to move around the location as it happens in video games in the first person. For the first time, the user will have the opportunity to independently study the details and examine objects of interest up close and draw their conclusions.
