«#Webimmunization: How can online social networks create collective resilience against misinformation?». To answer this question, the project combines perspectives from epidemiology, psychology, philosophy and computer science. Its main goal is to develop tools that can reliably assess the immunity of individual actors and entire networks of online users against misinformation. Moreover, it aims to test how this webimmunization influences behavior online and ultimately how it can be increased.
