Digital technologies are transforming business, our economy, and our society. They are driving innovation and creating unprecedented wealth. At the same time, a gap is emerging as accelerating changes in technology overtake the ability of people and organizations to keep pace. Harnessing the exponential improvements in artificial intelligence, robotics, networks, analytics, and digitization is the grand challenge for our generation and for MIT in particular.

This event will highlight MIT's role in both understanding and shaping our increasingly digital economy. Please join us for a celebration of innovation and technology and to learn more about the Institute's response to this challenge through an exciting new Initiative on the Digital Economy.
