About the project

Topic.Sirius project is the development and applied implementation of the R&D "Research of the characteristics of the information space created by news streams of electronic media" (State registration number: 0118U100003 from 16-05-2018). R&D carried out by the Department of Information Support Systems within the framework of the tasks of information support of analytical activities of the «Intelligence Center», created at the "Institute for Social and Economic Development" (ISED).

The project is of a research nature, aimed at creating and testing methodological foundations and applied aspects of information warfare (identification and assessment of acts of information aggression - in more detail on the «Description of the section - Home»).

We are driven by the awareness of the need not to miss the main thing in the flow of news, to provide an opportunity for socially active people to choose their own sources and method of information.

Topic.Sirius на FacebookWe provide content (synthesized knowledge) free of charge, generalized about the significance of the events ("Topics of the day") and evaluated in terms of the degree of influence on the reader (color interpretation). In addition, a generalized assessment and characteristics of the most rated electronic media are provided. Also, users have access to information about events in certain spheres of the state`s life. In this case, all content preparation is carried out using author`s algorithms, i.e. the subjectivity of the human factor is completely absent.

Unfortunately, technical means do not allow to provide an assessment of all content in real time in full. Therefore, the resource covers only the top of the information flow over the past few hours.

At the same time, the further development of our research lies in the direction of creating an expert system for analyzing and forecasting processes, phenomena, events in the country and the world. That, in our opinion, will contribute to the fight against information aggression.

In order to popularize our research, as well as to inform about our achievements, we have created a Facebook page.

We are very grateful if you are ready to help in the development of the project.
