Hvor blev al antistof i verden af? Hvordan skal vi skelne information og misinformation i digitale universer? Og hvordan tegner relationen mellem robotterne og mennesket til at blive i fremtiden? I en ny videoserie, ’Stay Curious’, indvier en række af Carlsbergfondets højt profilerede forskere i videnskabens seneste landvindinger og bringer alle interesserede up to date om, hvad vi ved – og hvad forskerne stadig er i færd med at finde svar på.

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.
