Today you can get to know the main keynote speakers of MediaTech Hub Conference: Meet cultural scientist Michael Seemann who will speak at the first day of the MediaTech Hub Conference at 10 am
on how the entertainment industry has become the "frontrunner" for the global platformization of the economy.
On November 11, the internationally renowned author Nina Schick (Tamang Ventures) will open on the subject of "Deepfakes & Synthetic Media" and ask how we can get a grip on the "infocalypse".
The cultural scientist Michael Seemann takes us on a journey to understand today: platforms are everywhere and
increasingly regulating all aspects of our lives. But how did we get here? Despite all the discussions about surveillance capitalism and the rise of Apple and Google, it really started with
sharing pop songs over the Internet. Napster was a first watershed moment in the development of digital platforms, leading to Netflix and the streaming phenomenon in the entertainment industry.
But that was just the beginning! Platforms have introduced a new paradigm into the economy that is completely different from the capitalist system we are used to. In his keynote, Michael Seemann
will talk about how digital platforms fostered the loss of control over information and then transformed themselves into an infrastructure of control.
Nina Schick is one of the top experts on
deepfakes. US President Joe Biden, ex-NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, the World Economic Forum, governments and corporations from all around the world have listened and continue to listen to her
advice. At MediaTech Hub Conference 2021, Nina Schick will talk about how "synthetic media" has already caught on. It is no longer a question of whether we are increasingly dealing with AI- and
MediaTech-generated FakeContent in our everyday lives. The question is: where are we and how do we face the challenge? As a society, as technologists.
