Andrew McAfee is a principal research scientist at MIT and cofounder of the Initiative on the Digital Economy at MIT’s Sloan School of Management. In his new best seller, The Second Machine Age, McAfee and coauthor Erik Brynjolfsson warn that we’re entering a wildly new era in human history. When the Industrial Revolution replaced manual labor with machines, people were still needed to run things; only a decade ago, pundits were telling us to become “knowledge workers” for job security. But with digital technology, the machines have now begun to take over those roles as well. This “second machine age” will change business and society in ways we can hardly imagine today. McAfee has written for Harvard Business Review, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. His previous books include Enterprise 2.0 and Race Against the Machine.
