The Second Machine Age, Andrew McAfee, MIT scientist and cofounder of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy
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 than 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. Andrew McAfee, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Second Machine Age, will discuss both the great promise and thorny challenges — for the IT industry and its customers — of the world we're creating as we adopt and deploy digital technologies that are the stuff of science fiction.

Leading Digital: Helping Your Customers Transform with New Technologies, George Westerman, Research Scientist with the MIT
Initiative on the Digital Economy
Fueled by mobility, analytics, social media, cloud computing, and embedded devices, companies in every industry are mapping their way through the digital universe. Yet some firms are far outpacing others in their ability to drive new value from digital technology.
Drawing from his book, Leading Digital: Turning Technology into Business Transformation, Dr. George Westerman shows how effective leaders are transforming their businesses — through customer engagement, operations, and business models — to continuously create new value with technology. This session will identify the new priorities for business leaders driving digital transformation and what IT industry leaders need to do to make these initiatives a reality inside their organizations.
