"A technology optimist and an expert on human-machine interaction and the future of work"Add to my shortlist
For more than a quarter century, MIT scientist Andrew McAfee has been studying how digital technologies change the world. As part of this work, he comes into close contact with the "alpha geeks" whose innovations create the future. A few years ago, he had the most surprising realisation of his career: the geeks had figured out how to build better companies. Geek companies 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. For decades, Andrew has been studying how technology is changing the world, economies, business models, work and the environment.
