Fee Band

Having covered politics in journalism for companies such as the BBC and CNN and advised names including President Joe Biden, Nina is an expert on how technology transforms geopolitics and society. Now leading her own consultancy, she advises governments and businesses on issues from cybersecurity to disinformation and the effects they have on trust and democratic systems. Her book Deep Fakes explores the threat that synthetic media poses to the future and raises awareness of its dangers when weaponised.


Nina Schick is an author and consultant working on the intersection between society, politics and technology. Specialising in the 'Age of AI' - an era in which technology will change the framework of society. She is an expert in geopolitics, artificial intelligence, synthetic media and deepfakes. Nina helps organisations understand and navigate the risks and opportunities of a volatile and rapidly transforming global outlook. 

Originally working in politics, political strategy and journalism, Nina’s career included time with the BBC, CNN, Spiegel Online and The Sunday Times, covering politics and in particular issues around the EU. She was the Communications Director for the Open Europe think-tank, and held senior roles in political strategy companies focusing on the use of data and technology in campaigns. Nina then went on to found her own business advising clients from governments and NGOs to a range of private sector businesses on issues from cybersecurity and espionage to synthetic media, disinformation and the geopolitics of tech.

Her book Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse: What You Urgently Need to Know, explores a global threat that is prevalent, but all too often ignored or misunderstood. In an age where video is the primary, and most trusted, medium for many people to access news and information, the power to convincingly change footage of politicians and influential figures has massive implications. Nina looks at the growing access to and power of a form of AI that can learn how people speak, look and move, and to subtly alter video footage. The result convincingly shows subjects saying and doing almost anything the user wishes. Nina explains how this technology came about, how it’s already being used, and what can be done to stop it destroying trust and overwhelming democracies. She describes how AI will shift the paradigm of human communication, predicting that over 90% of online video content will be generated by AI by 2030.

She advises several cutting-edge AI and technology companies, including Trupic, the first company to build media authentication technology; as well as Synthesia, the world’s first AI video-generation platform.
