All-star Cast Of Academics From Across MIT The Future of Digital Business

By Barnard Crespi | February 15, 2011

The Academic Keynote Panel of the MITSloan CIO Symposium offers a unique lens on the future of digital business, and this year’s panel takes a broader technology view that will bring the horizon closer. Moderated by Jason Pontin of the MIT-published Technology Review, the panelists are an all-star cast of academics from across the Institute.

The growth of social networks, the increasingly digital nature of business, and the dichotomy of enabling without controlling the viral nature of information makes the job of the CIO extremely complicated. We are just scratching the surface of developing, using and understanding the tools for collecting and analyzing digital business data. But what are the really big insights? And what is next after companies have a strong grasp of these tools?

MIT faculty have a unique perspective on technology and how it shapes our future. In no subject is that more important than Information Technology. This Panel will draw from faculty across the Institute – from Sloan to Engineering, and from Media to Artificial Intelligence – who will comment on what they see as the biggest changes yet to come that CIOs should know of and prepare for.

  • Erik Brynjolfsson started Sloan’s largest research center more than a decade ago. The Center for Digital Business at MIT Sloan conducts real-world, empirical research in information, technology, knowledge and economics that shows the causal mechanisms of how digital business works (or doesn’t).
  • Alex “Sandy” Pentland focuses on human-centered technology at the world- renown Media Lab. One of the most cited computer scientists in the world, Sandy is a pioneer in organizational engineering, mobile systems and computational social science. He helps companies to reinvent themselves to be both more human and more productive.

Please join the discussion to learn what the MIT Faculty believe will be the future of our organizations.
