Once again about “Topic.Sirius” in simple words.
Timeliness and relevance of the appearance of “Topic.Sirius” is due to several events taking place in the World at once.
So, during the period of active information wars unleashed by various political and economic groups in their own interests, there is an acute issue of assessing the information field in which we all live and determining the degree of its danger for each person, within the framework of personal psychological hygiene. In this part, “Topic.Sirius” acts as personal protective equipment.
For convenience, in Topic.Sirius, all news is colored with colors so that you can immediately visually assess the degree of information contamination of the material published in the media.
The intelligent information and analytical system does not limit users to a list of media sources in the selection table. With the help of the tool “Toxicity of text“, everyone can check any text material for the level of quality of information consumed.
In addition, Topic.Sirius can assist private and public entities in organizing their information policy. The system identifies sources of destructive propaganda that distribute manipulative and aggressive content and the topics on which these sources work. This allows you to get to know your opponent by sight, identify your shortcomings in information policy and develop specific counter-propaganda measures. In particular, to determine the directions of their constructive propaganda in order to neutralize the negative.
To prepare high-quality materials on counter-propaganda, you can use the same tool “Toxicity of the text”, which will tell you how much the prepared material meets the required parameters.
It should also be noted that recently there has been an active discussion about the ways of development of society in the post-crisis period. More and more experts agree that the future belongs to a planned economy (as a goal) using a market economy (as a method). In this context, “Topic.Sirius” can be viewed as a conceptual model of information and analytical systems of the future, maximally protected from the influence of the human factor in the process of analysis and forecasting, the main task of which will be to control the main areas of society. http://topic.sirius-iq.com/
As an illustration of the impact of negative information on a person, we’ll give an example from personal experience. This is how the test result looks like with the help of a program developed on the basis of the Luscher test after reading the current news. As you can see, the stress level is very high. http://my-medium.com/

The result of a successful analysis will be a table indicating (in %) the main indices that determine the quality of the entered text.
The coefficient of PR influence is an integral indicator, in percentage terms from a linguistic point of view, shows the degree of similarity of materials to “direct influence texts” (for a single message it is calculated on the basis of linguistic-statistical saturation of emotional and manipulative content; for the source and theme of the day as a characteristic of the whole corpus / sets of incoming messages)
Temper (Temperament) is an integral indicator that, based on the analysis of linguistic and statistical assessments of the content of messages, with a reliability of> 75%, shows the psychological / subjective characteristics of the author or their group in the preparation of materials.
Em (Emotionality) – in percentage terms, the score shows the presence of emotional vocabulary.
EV(Eventfulness) – in percentage terms, the score shows the presence of vocabulary characteristic for the presentation of factual material.
NE (Non-Eventuality) – as a percentage, shows the presence of vocabulary characteristic for the filing of author’s statements, opinions, subjective / expert assessments of events / processes / phenomena, etc.
MN (Manipulability) – in percentage terms, the score shows the presence of manipulative vocabulary.
NG (Negative) – in percentage terms, the score shows the presence of negative vocabulary.
PS (Positive) – in percentage terms, the score shows the presence of positive vocabulary.

Thus, a system in an automatic mode, based on content analysis, can identify sources of constructive and destructive propaganda.
In addition, it is possible to view exactly which topics form the sources of propaganda in the information field.
NEWS (Feb. 2020)
Our institute, in the continuation of the research work “Research of the characteristics of the information space created by news flows of electronic media”, developed the analytical system “Topic.sirius”, which allows you to collect and analyze data circulating in the information field, as well as evaluate the sources that disseminate it (see down: Interface screenshot of system).
“Topic.sirius” allows you to:
1. Assess the general situation in the information field of the country and exercise control over its changes.
2. To control and evaluate the work of media sources that form the information field in the country.
3. To identify internal and external sources of threats to information security.
4. To identify the initiators of targeted informational influence on the subject of the attack, his psychological state or image on the international scene, as well as the sources of information through which this effect is carried out.
5. Monitor global political, economic, military, environmental and other processes, as well as monitor the actions of countries disseminating information in order to obtain unilateral advantages.
6. Identify opinion leaders and opinion transmitters, as well as external opponents. Assess their quantity and quality. Define their goals, objectives and working methods.

The Institute successfully carried out R&D:
“Research of the characteristics of the information space created by news flows of electronic media”.
As part of the ISED Institute’s R&D program for the development and implementation of automatic information and analytical systems to ensure the ecology of the information space of the state, we have developed an information technology for the study of information flows generated by electronic media.
The technology allows:
• Highlight the most important / resonant events (“Themes of the Day”) for the selected period (day).
• Conduct linguistic filtering of incoming content.
• Define and form thematic (linguistically defined industry, object, special) information flows.
• Evaluate both information flows and individual text messages for the presence of elements of influence (on the principle of “direct action text”) on the reader (emotionality, manipulative, factual, PR-influence, etc.) on the target audience.
• Separate the generalized content of information flows on the basis of: informing and having elements of analysis.
Several more R&D projects will be started at the Institute in the near future, which based on the positive results obtained.
Our Institute researches, stay and the analysis of features and regularities of social and economic development of the states; the influence of the environment on human health, etc. Researches are conducted by means of the information and analytical system developed by us, which belongs to systems of “artificial intelligence”. The automated system of multilevel transformation of information is the cornerstone of a Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH), which belongs to methods of inductive modeling and is one of the most effective methods of structural and parametrical identification of difficult objects, processes and systems according to supervision in the conditions of incompleteness of information.
First of all our attention is focused on research of features of the country with the developed information economy as they are engines of world development.
Europe: Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Germany, UK and others.
Countries of the Middle East: The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran and others.
The countries with the British-American model of development: the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Countries of the Asian region: Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, China and others.
