PAST EVENT

Creating Our Digital World with Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee

We live in a time when machines outplay humans at strategy games, new companies such as Apple and Google destroy industry stalwarts, and ideas from the crowd are repeatedly more innovative than corporate research labs. Come hear Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson, co-founders of MIT’s Initiative on the Digital Economy, talk about the new dynamics between minds and machines, products and platforms, and the core and the crowd. Join us for an intriguing conversation on what the effects of the digital revolution are and how society is changing because of it.
