The Internet provides access to vast quantities of information, with social mediaallowing us to share ideas on a global scale. Does this access to information lead to an increase in understanding, or does synthesizing vast quantities of information simply yield noise?

The NOISE INDEX         is a research platform initiated in 2013 by Owen Vallis, Jordan Hochenbaum, Jasmin Blasco & Raphael Arar, exploring the questions that emerge from increased access to information, and the consequences of information saturation.
