Race Against the Machine—The Future of Jobs

Andrew McAfee, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy; Author of New York Times best-seller, The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies

We are now in the second machine age, which is overcoming the limitations of our brains and infinitely increasing our knowledge power. According to technology optimist Andrew McAfee, this new machine age will create a fantastic world that is only limited by our lack of imagination.

But despite what some may say, robots will not replace humans in the entrepreneurial sense. Instead of a dystopian future where machines destroy our lives, machines will free us from the chains of the industrial revolution. Andrew will share tangible ways in which IT is changing how companies perform, organize themselves and compete. He’ll help you rethink how your organization will work, interact, and prosper in an era of profound digital transformation. Develop strategies to balance technology and talent—leveraging automation so you can turn both your skilled and knowledge workers into innovators that can take on new challenges.

  • Connecting how workers’ jobs depend on each other
