Inspiration

Eye tracking technology. Psychology courses. And data collection.

Big social media giants like Facebook are in some ways exacerbating confirmation bias by measuring click rates/eye ball times and showing users information they would be more likely to linger on based on these measurements, to maximize eyeball time to sell to advertisers. This contributes to political polarization and has even contributed to the rise of right wing extremism in U.S., Europe, and around the globe. We'd like to educate people about how their choices may be influenced.

Use cases: For general public, in classrooms, orientation for corporate employees, detectives, policeman, judges etc.
