This year’s Ammodo Science Award for Groundbreaking Research in the domain of Humanities was awarded to iHub! We received the award for our research into the impact of digitalisation on public values. We are extremely happy that our teamwork is awarded in this way.
A USENIX Security paper by Asuman Senol (KU Leuven), Gunes Acar (iHub), Mathias Humbert (University of Lausanne) and Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius (iHub) showed how users’ email addresses and passwords are collected on thousands of websites for tracking purposes without users consent and knowledge. The study was covered by Wired and NOS.
We are happy to launch the Sphere Transgression Watch. The STW is a digital tool that tracks and visualizes the growing presence of Big Tech in different sectors – or spheres – of society, such as health, education, news provision and public policy.
