STAY CURIOUS: Misinformation, “fake news”, and attention economy are the keywords of Vincent Hendricks’ research. As social media are not regulated, they are largely a free market. When it is possible to be on social media for free, it is because you pay with your attention and your data. You, yourself, are the product to be sold.

STAY CURIOUS: We are bombarded with information. Listen, when professor and leader of Center for Information and Bubble Studies, Vincent Hendricks, talks about “opinion bubbles” and just how valuable your attention is.

STAY CURIOUS: “What is your work and why is it important?”, Vincent Hendrick’s son asked him ten years ago. This became the starting point for collecting and using his knowledge to the benefit of all of us. In a field between the humanities and technology, Vincent Hendricks does his research to understand the mechanisms behind misinformation.

“Den nyeste forskning viser, at de fondsejede virksomheder klarer sig godt og kan ekspandere internationalt. … Flemming Besenbacher understreger, at en grundlæggende sund forretning er forudsætningen for, at fondene kan uddele støtte til de formål, som er bestemt af deres fundatser. “Kernen i Carlsberg har hele tiden været bryggeriet, og kun hvis det går godt, og der kommer udbytte, er der penge til de filantropiske aktiviteter,” siger han og tilføjer, at fondene også bidrager med agilitet til dansk forskning. “Vi kan reagere hurtigt, hvis der kommer forskere med en ansøgning om midler til et visionært og spændende forskningsformål,” siger Flemming Besenbacher og fortæller, at Carlsbergfondet for nylig har ydet støtte til et forskningsprojekt på Københavns Universitet ledet af professor Vincent Hendricks i boblestudier, f.eks. medie- og finansbobler.
