In an algorithmic post-truth world, the lines between reality and fiction are becoming increasingly blurred, and it's essential to understand how to navigate this new landscape.
    As Morpheus said in The Matrix, "What is real? How do you define real?" But even his definition is no longer true in today's world. That's why I'm excited to bring my digital twin to this talk and take the audience on a journey into the unknown, exploring the latest trends and emerging technologies that are reshaping our world and our perception of reality.
    Together, we'll explore the implications of this new world, from the challenges and opportunities of synthetic data and media to the ethical considerations of using these technologies. So, get ready to challenge your assumptions and redefine your understanding of what is real and what is fake.
