VIS: engaging and reaching youth with news through virtual humans.

Project: Research

Project Details


A multidisciplinary team of researchers, teachers and students will create and test new concepts around Virtual Humans to reach and engage the young audience with news. They will do this in collaboration with, and on media brands and content from, DPG Media (the largest media company in the Netherlands and Belgium and active in Denmark, owner of more than 80 brands with over 2000 journalists). Dutch students do this based on their knowledge around Media Innovations and Virtual Humans and the students from the USA based on their knowledge around Journalism, Immersive Media and AI.
