NevaLabs is a team of journalists, researchers and developers working together to empower individuals who want to take personal control of their news experience.
Solutions that Empower the Individual
We are developing tools to drive greater transparency, relevance and value of news and information, pro-actively enabling users to improve their news experience and achieve their personal goals.
Control We will enable individuals to take control of their personal behaviour, digital environment, and the filters that shape the news and information they experience.
Transparency We will make the relevance, veracity and value of the news and information evident to each individual user. We will make visible the invisible influences that shape the news and information.
Proactivity Our tools will actively assist our users by anticipating, responding, understanding and supporting individual goals. We will also encourage and support better behaviours and conscious engagement with news and information.
Every day is like getting in line for a ‘trust fall’, testing the limits of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and resolving all the time to do better. Only with trust in each other and in each other’s processes will we actually build a product that maximises externally for people’s trust.
“At NevaLabs, we believe the path to a sustainable business model for news is through a radically enhanced and empowering user experience. Through the Smart Commute project, we hope to create a new standard for ‘Purposeful Personalisation’ that can be used by the news industry to unlock deeper engagement and trust”.
In work and in our product, we want to know that our time is well spent. That we’ve had a measurable impactful return on our attention. That we’ve hit a critical milestone that will move us further along our learning curve.
