Sander Duivestein


Sander Duivestein is a researcher, author, and speaker on the impact of new technology on people, businesses, and society since 2005. In October 2021, he wrote the book Real Fake- Playing with reality in the era of ChatGPT, deepfakes, and the metaverse, which clearly illustrates that the development of artificial intelligence is as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, personal computers, the internet, and mobile phones.

The way we are accustomed to doing things will be completely transformed by artificial intelligence. The way we work, learn, play, travel, receive healthcare, and communicate with each other will be revolutionized. Entire industries will reorient themselves around it. By the end of this decade, there will be only two types of companies: those using AI and those going out of business.

Sander works for VerkenningsInstituut Nieuwe Technologie (VINT) of Sogeti. He is a speaker, trendwatcher, internet entrepreneur, advisor, and columnist on the impact of digital technology on people, businesses, and society. He is also a highly sought-after guest in various radio and television programs.

In recent years, on behalf of VINT, he has written several books and reports on topics such as the Internet of Things, Wearables, Big Data, Social Media, Mobile, Cloud Computing, and the economic crisis.

In October 2021, the book Real Fake was released, co-authored by Sander Duivestein, Menno van Doorn, and Thijs Pepping. The rapid progression into the future, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, served as a backdrop for this publication. “Real Fake” delves into the intricacies of the new paradigms shaping our future, elucidating the profound impact these changes have on our economy and society.

Sander Duivestein’s presentations are characterized by their highly visual nature. The audience is presented with a lot of images in a short amount of time. With trends, business cases, short clips, provocative statements, and humor, Sander takes the viewer towards the future. His presentations are always current and tailored to the audience. Sander does not shy away from discussion, he inspires, challenges, and encourages the audience to think.

“Sander recently presented at a seminar organized by Robeco. His interactive way of presenting (with lots of pictures, videos, etc.) clearly conveys his vision of the digital future in a playful manner. His presentation is inspiring from start to finish and combines humorous anecdotes with serious advice and a clear message: embrace the digital world. Sander is a valuable addition as a speaker, and we would gladly use his services again in the future.”
