Andrew McAfee at USI
Andrew McAfee

We are living in a time of brilliant technologies: cars that drive themselves; Jeopardy!-champion supercomputers; cheap, flexible, and useful robots; algorithms that make better decisions that humans; and countless others. They are bringing us into a second machine age, the greatest era of transformation since the Industrial Revolution. In his talk, Dr. McAfee will discuss both the great promise and thorny challenges – for organizations, leaders, and workers alike – of the world we're creating as we create and deploy digital technologies that are the stuff of science fiction.
