.eu Academy Masterclass Speakers
Sophie Timmermann is deputy head of the fact-checking team at CORRECTIV, a German non-profit independent newsroom. Ms. Timmermann will provide insights into their fact-checking work, discuss prominent disinformation topics and narratives across Europe, and share information about initiatives aimed at addressing them. She will also offer tips on how to spot misleading information, particularly in the context of upcoming elections.
In 2008, Mart de Kruif assumed command of the allied forces in Afghanistan and in 2011, he was promoted to Lieutenant General and took on the role of Commander of the Royal Netherlands Army. Mart de Kruif's keynote speech centers around leadership in times of crisis: how to translate vision into plans, individuals into teams, and values into virtues. During his presentation, Mart will outline the current developments of the war in Ukraine, emphasizing the importance of defending European democracy during wartime. He highlights the need for coordinated action rather than individual national efforts.
Josef Holý has a diverse background, spanning corporate and startup roles, from programming to AI, with recent interests in digital manipulation, computational propaganda, and AI ethics, while also co-hosting a Czech podcast and giving lectures at FIT CTU in Prague. In this Masterclass, he will address the widespread public debate on AI's risks and dangers, aiming to dispel the sci-fi and magical thinking belief systems that have led to confusion and hindered crucial regulatory discussions.
