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

by Barnard Crespi Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Cambridge, MA – Feb 15, 2011 – The Academic Keynote Panel of the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium offers a unique lens on the future of digital business. This year's panel takes a broader technology view that will help bring that business horizon into focus. Moderated by Jason Pontin of the MIT-published Technology Review, 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 and what CIOs should know and how to prepare.

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. On May 18 at the eighth annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, this panel of experts from across MIT will provide insights to address these challenges.

The panel of all-star industry experts includes:

* Erik Brynjolfsson started Sloan's largest research center more than a decade ago

* Alex “Sandy” Pentland focuses on human-centered technology at the world- renowned Media Lab.

MIT faculty have a unique perspective on technology and how it shapes our future. And in no subject is that more important than Information Technology.
