How emerging technologies & human machine partnerships will transform the economy.


Erik Brynjolfsson:

Brynjolfsson will share the latest research on the effects of digital platforms and a limitless abundance of data to paint a full picture of the “new economy,” and how to harness its power rather than be sunk by change. He believes even the savviest leaders still underestimate the radical speed of change ahead, and explores how leaders can escape outdated assumptions, processes and strategies to effectively meet the challenges to come.

As machines take on more jobs, many find themselves out of work or with raises indefinitely postponed. Is this the end of growth? No, says Erik Brynjolfsson -- it’s simply the growing pains of a radically reorganized economy. A riveting case for why big innovations are ahead of us … if we think of computers as our teammates.

Erik Brynjolfsson of MIT will join us to explore the seismic changes being brought about in societies, economies, and organizations by three primary elements of the machine age: Machines are now transforming the role of human decision-making, digital platforms allow products and services of others to be sold and brokered, and there’s a proliferation of an almost-magical effectiveness for obtaining ideas from the general public–the crowd–rather than from the experts at the core of the business.

According to Brynjolfsson, “We are in the early stages of not one, but three revolutions. Decisions shift from minds to machines. Profits are generated by platforms not just products. And insights created by a broader crowd, not just a narrow core of experts. The future belongs to the leaders who understand and harness this triple revolution.”
