We are thrilled to annouce that our CEO, Thomas Albrechtsen, was chosen by Berlingske Business as one of the rising stars of the Danish Corporate world in 2017. The list includes talents who were “extensively nominated by business and other interested parties”, and is a testament to Thomas’ hard work and dedication to Nextwork. Amongst other qualities, Thomas was nominated for his humanistic approach to analyzing Big Data, which emphasizes insights that allow us to understand human nature and behavior at scale. As noted by our director of board, Jesper Højberg: “For me, with 30 years of experience as a consultant, it is impressive to watch Thomas advise customers at a level that is totally unique for such a young person. That he at the same time is able to develop novel research methods, publish academic articles, and can call himself an author, is simply just admirable.«

Our Head of Research and Assistant Professor at the University of Copenhagen, Ph.D. Brian Due, has spent the last year studying the future of wearables and their implication for social interaction. His paper, ”Knowledge and Epistemic Incongruences in Social Interaction with Google Glass” will be presentet at the Fifth Meeting of the Language and Social Interaction Working Group (LANSI) at Columbia University on the 16th of October. The paper deals with a participant’s use of Google Glass in social interaction with regard to object-orientation and identity; how the use of Google Glass is a private experience, which produces epistemic incongruence; and how Google Glass is a non-human participant, who occupies slots in the sequential unfolding of turns.
