Trendwatcher, TEDx speaker, author and podcaster Jarno Duursma
I am a technology expert, trendwatcher and speaker in the field of digital technology. I am also the author of four books on digital technology, including on artificial intelligence and blockchain. My two most recent reports are about ‘Machines with Imagination’ and ‘Deepfake Technology’. I can often be seen and heard in the national media and I write opinion articles for Het Financieele Dagblad (or FD, a Dutch daily newspaper focused on business and financial matters), NRC (a Dutch daily newspaper of record) and De Volkskrant (a Dutch daily morning newspaper) – among other publications. I am also the creator of the ‘Listening to the future’ tech podcast and I organised the TechEvent SMC050 for many years. I personally founded this event at the time.
Articles and publications by Jarno Duursma
My vision on digital technology has also appeared in book form. For example, I wrote ‘The Digital Butler’ about the opportunities and threats of artificial intelligence, as well as a book about Bitcoin Blockchain. I have written two reports: one is entitled ‘Machines with Imagination’, while the other report focuses on Deepfake technology. Besides books and reports, I have written articles for Emerce, Bright and Frankwatching. But you may also know me from national media or opinion articles for FD, NRC, De Volkskrant and Nieuwsuur (a Dutch current affairs television programme produced for the NPO by the government broadcasters NOS and NTR).
