Andrew McAfee Biography

Andrew McAfee is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of the 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. His new book "More From Less: How We Finally Learned to Prosper Using Fewer Resources - and What Happens Next" was published by Scribner in 2019.

His 2014 book "The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies," coauthored with Erik Brynjolfsson, won several awards 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," published in 2017, 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, Fareed Zakaria, and Tom Ashbrook, 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.

Speaking Topics
  • Business Advice We Shouldn’t Believe Any More plus a short intro to More from Less

  • More from Less: How We Innovated Our Way into a Healthier Relationship with Our Planet

  • Why We’re Still Underestimating Artificial Intelligence

  • Business Advice We Shouldn’t Believe Any More

  • Why We’re Still Underestimating Artificial Intelligence

    In this provocative talk, Dr. McAfee will describe an unexpected phenomenon, and one with profound consequences: for many tasks artificial intelligence technologies not only perform better than us; they also perform differently. They clearly don't reason the same way we do, which means they are not limited by our knowledge, or constrained by our ways of looking at the world and making progress on difficult challenges. Using examples from games like Go, chess, and poker, and also real-world situations like controlling industrial facilities and tweaking the genomes of microbes, this talk will show how machines are rapidly opening up new territory.

  • Business Advice We Shouldn’t Believe Any More

    In this lively and wide-ranging talk, Dr. McAfee will convey the key ideas of Machine | Platform | Crowd, the 2017 book, written with Erik Brynjolfsson, that The Economist called "an astute romp through important digital trends." Bringing together cutting-edge research and recent examples spanning everything from genomics to investing to group exercise to playing Go, this talk shows audiences how the business world is being quickly reshaped by technological progress, and how they can harness the forces of disruption instead of being overwhelmed by them.
