MIT Sloan: Future of Work Conference


We recently attended the Future of Work conference in New York City hosted by MIT Sloan and its Initiative of Digital Economy (IDE). The event explored the impact of digital progress – especially advancements in general-purpose technologies like AI and machine learning – on traditional jobs, industries, and business models.

In his keynote address, IDE co-director Erik Brynjolfsson observed that even though digital progress makes economic pie bigger, there’s no economic law that everyone, or even most people, benefit.  Assembled panelists and speakers discussed topics ranging from digital ethics and data privacy, to new models of work and work design, to the much needed socio-economic safety net to address worker anxiety.
