Start spreading the news
A social data science expert explains how to tackle the grizzly problem of fake news.
“Everybody’s discussing the problem, when we should be focusing on the solution instead. The bottom line is: the tools that cause the uncontrolled spread of fake news are also the ones that can solve it.” – Alessandro Bozzon, TU Delft.
“Listen to the inspiring research of our researcher Cynthia Liem on how music can help you focus on your work at BNR’s show NieuweWereld, this can be useful for everyone!”

NextView: Many Views of Virtual Worlds
Prof. Dr. E. (Elmar) Eisemann (m), Delft University of Technology – Computer Graphics and Visualization
Computer Graphics is important for many domains including geoscience, medicine, and entertainment. Traditional graphics methods are particularly costly when used for novel display devices (e.g., virtual reality) and in applications with many users (e.g., games). We will develop a novel many-view pipeline resulting in high-performance solutions for these scenarios.

Hoger onderwijs beschikbaar stellen aan miljoenen mensen voor weinig tot geen kosten, is een visie die massive open online cursussen wil vervullen. Deze visie is echter nog lang niet verwezenlijkt – te weinig mensen slagen er in te leren op deze manier. Dit project probeert dat te veranderen.
