Executive Electives: Deepfakes
About The Electives:
Last October, we sent out a survey to AMS students and alumni, asking them to let us know what keeps them awake at night. Based on the outcome of the survey, the plan was to set up a program for the AMS executive electives, scheduled for January 8.
Unfortunately, the current situation still prevents us from organizing any on-site activities. We have therefore decided to change the format of the electives to a virtual event. Based on the topics you indicated in the survey, we have identified several inspiring speakers, who will host a series of webinars.
New Format: The 2021 Executive electives will take place online on the following dates and on 11:30 - 13:30.
- 19 January 2021: Deep Fakes by Nina Schick;
- 16 February 2021: M-Kopa Or how to develop new successful business models by Prof. Jamie Anderson;
- 16 March 2021: Organizing the government as a lean start-up in crisis
by Former Minister Philippe De Backer;
- 20 April 2021: Innovating the labor organization, a retail case by Herman Van de Velde;
- 17 May 2021: How to beat Big Tech: Lessons from Russia by Andrei Povarov.
Registrations for the other webinars in this series will open closer to the event date. So check the AMS website for updates.
In addition to outstanding keynotes, and to create a community feeling, the webinars will offer networking opportunities with AMS Executive students and alumni, and friends of AMS. After the keynote, there will also be Q&A time to make the experience even more rewarding.
We hope that you will join us in 2021!
What is Deepfakes?
It is a type of ‘synthetic’ or fake media, wholly or partially generated by AI - are the latest evolving threat. Machines can be trained to create fake media of people doing and saying things they never did or said. When everything can be faked…anything can be denied. The fabric of reality is being corroded.
