Interested in what the future will hold? Join us as LinkedIn Co-Founder and Partner at Greylock Reid Hoffman hosts a fireside chat with MIT Sloan School of Management’s faculty members Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee. Erik and Andrew are co-authors of the 2014 NYTimes best-selling book, The Second Machine Age, and their latest book, Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future.
Reid, Erik, and Andrew will discuss the fascinating times that we are living in today - a time where a machine can play the strategy game Go better than any human; upstarts like Apple and Google are destroying industry stalwarts such as Nokia; and ideas sourced from the crowd are infinitely more innovative than corporate research labs.
Andrew and Erik know what it takes to master this digital-powered shift, and Reid will have a chance to discuss with them how we need to rethink the integration of minds and machines, of products and platforms, and of the core and the crowd.
