Shoshana Zuboff 

We may have democracy, or we may have Facebook, but we cannot have both.
We are living in the social and political chaos created by the digital age - what author and Harvard business professor Shoshanna Zuboff predicted in her groundbreaking, epoch-defining bestseller The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. Now, as we brace ourselves through pandemic-related waves of economic, social, and political instability, Zuboff presents the solution we must embrace.

Jake Tapper 

Where do we go from here? 
When journalists are framed as “enemies of the people”, and the lines between facts and lies are blurred - how can democracy prevail?

Jake Tapper, CNN Anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent presents the story of the enthralling mix of fake news, alternative facts, disturbed leaders, and a never-ending election coverage - with CNN at the epicenter of it all. Will newsrooms go back to “normal”, will they forever change – or what is the new normal now?

Get to know Jake Tapper.

Miguel Silva
Founder & CEO @ Visualyst

Before every movie and TV series are released to be enjoyed by the public, content must be checked, controlled, and adjusted to different audiences, markets and regulations. Violence, nudity, rude language, and ads must be detected and checked before release.
This is a highly time-consuming and often painful process for the compliance team.

Visualyst aims to transform this process - getting the content available for you to watch quicker than ever before! By delivering a revolutionary tool, they’re automating the process of compliance by using AI,
making for faster and more accurate compliance checks.
