Andrew McAfee Biography

Andrew McAfee is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of MIT’s Initiative on the Digital Economy and a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He studies how digital technologies are changing the world. In his upcoming book, “The Geek Way: The Radical Mindset Transforming the Future of Business” he reveals what Geek companies are doing differently and why it works so well. They are much more freewheeling, fast-moving, evidence-driven, egalitarian, argumentative and autonomous than their Industrial Era predecessors. As a result, they are standout performers and fierce rivals, disrupting industry after industry – and they’re just getting started.

Other books include “More From Less: The Surprising Story of How We Learned to Prosper Using Fewer Resources - and What Happens Next”, “The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies”, coauthored with Erik Brynjolfsson and has been both a New York Times and Wall Street Journal top ten bestseller. Another book with Brynjolfsson, “Machine | Platform| Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future”, offers an executive’s guide to succeeding during this turbulent era. These books have been translated into more than 15 languages, and McAfee and Brynjolfsson are the only people named to both the Thinkers50 list of the world’s top management thinkers and the Politico 50 group of people transforming American politics.

McAfee has written for publications including Foreign Affairs, Harvard Business Review, The Economist, The Wall St. Journal, and The New York Times. He's talked about his work on CNN and 60 Minutes, at the World Economic Forum, TED, and the Aspen Ideas Festival, with Tom Friedman and Fareed Zakaria, and in front of many international and domestic audiences.

McAfee was educated at MIT and Harvard. He lives in Cambridge Massachusetts, watches too much Red Sox baseball, doesn't ride his motorcycle enough, and starts his weekends with the NYT Saturday crossword.

Andrew McAfee Speaking Topics

  • The Surprises of Generative AI

    ChatGPT and other types of Generative AI (GenAI), a new and powerful type of artificial intelligence, has taken us by surprise – we weren’t expecting its capabilities to appear so soon. According to Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management who was named among the top 50 management thinkers in the world, GenAI is already transforming jobs and industries and delivering unprecedented creativity and productivity boosts. However, these systems still have serious flaws that need to be addressed in order for them to realize their full impact. In this fundamentally optimistic talk, McAfee stresses that GenAI will improve the business world and our lives, and that many of their harms are overstated.

  • The Geek Takeover: What Traditional Companies Can Learn From Big Tech

    Over the past two decades, big tech companies have innovated and experimented with the standard Industrial Era business model, creating organizations that are now dominating the global economy. How do they do it, and will the bubble burst? In this talk, MIT digital economist and data scientist Andrew McAfee, co-founder of MIT’s Initiative on the Digital Economy, takes audiences on a deep dive into his upcoming book, “The Geek Way.” He pulls back the curtain on what makes these “geek companies” consistently strong performers, how they excel at disrupting industries, and what traditional companies can learn from their freewheeling, fast-moving, evidence-driven, egalitarian, argumentative and autonomous cultures.
