Tech expert, TEDx speaker and author Jarno Duursma

Jarno Duursma is an independent technology expert, publicist, researcher and speaker on digital technology. He has written four books, including on artificial intelligence, creative machines, deepfake technology and blockchain. Jarno is frequently featured in daily newspapers and national media such as EenVandaag, NOS, RTL4 and writes opinion articles for FD, NRC and Volkskrant among others.

"Jarno's lecture helped us to understand the impact of artificial intelligence on people, companies and even the whole society. His fresh view on the digital future inspired our team but also warned us not to forget the human factor. Because in the future, the human factor will be the one that makes you stand out as a company."

"Jarno was the final guest speaker at our customer day. He gave a fluent presentation with practical examples of technologies that sometimes still seem a bit elusive. It was important to us that our customers could imagine how they could apply new technologies in their own business. Jarno certainly succeeded in doing that. It was an informative, interesting, but also entertaining end to the day. Thanks a lot!"

"Jarno gave a lecture at HKU about Synthetic Media: Artificial Creativity. Using many examples, Jarno showed what is possible in the fascinating world of deepfakes. Interesting and frightening at the same time, and enough food for thought. His lecture was received with great enthusiasm."

"Sometimes you're lucky and by chance a speaker appears on your path who can playfully inject the necessary dynamics into your ICT quarterly meeting. Jarno not only highlighted the latest IT trends in a humorous way, but also sparked the necessary discussions about the bright and dark sights of ever-increasing automation. He even managed to make the link to our business operations and thus contributed to a successful afternoon."

"For the first edition of our online digital marketing event at Achmea, Jarno gave a lecture on synthetic media and deepfakes. Jarno conveys the message with a lot of energy and makes the subject very accessible, also for colleagues who have little digital knowledge. With the help of striking examples you are completely taken into the world of this new technology."

"I heard Jarno speak about Bitcoin and Blockchain at a Rabobank event. It is one of the best expositions I have ever heard on the basics of Bitcoin and Blockchain. Jarno was able to make the complex subject matter accessible to an audience not familiar with the principles."
