Bring XR to a radically new level of presence and sociality.

The border between humans and technology is blurring, and their close intertwining in everyday life will continue to increase. The most pressing challenge is to steer this reality transformation towards the creation of new opportunities for human-centric, safe, rewarding, and inclusive social interaction in this hybrid future. SHARESPACE’s radically new and unobtrusive XR technology will enable intuitive and intelligent interactions between humans and avatars, modelling embodied social behaviour in XR. Our functional multimodal-multisensory “social broadcasting” interface, combined with new knowledge and technology, will have a strong positive effect on future usages, enabling smooth, fun and transparent interaction with AI-agents. 

SHARESPACE will support community-building and exploitation with concrete initiatives 

Our technology will be iteratively tested in 2 Proofs-of-principles involving human and artificial agents interacting in Social Hybrid Spaces, and 3 real-world use case scenarios in Health, Sport and Art. Read more about the objectives of the project
