Andrew McAfee

Рождение: 1967; 

He and Erik Brynjolfsson are co-authors of the ebook Race Against The Machine.

Third industrial revolution

History has witnessed three industrial revolutions, each associated with a general purpose technology. The first, powered by steam, the second, based on electricity. The third industrial revolution, which is unfolding now, is fuelled by computers and networks. Like both of the previous ones, it will take decades to fully play out. And like each of the first two, it will lead to sharp changes in the path of human development and history. The twists and disruptions will not always be easy to navigate.

More computers and fewer people

Weʼve stressed that computers are rapidly encroaching into areas that used to be the domain of people only, like complex communication and advanced pattern recognition. And weʼve shown how this encroachment can cause companies to use more computers and fewer people in a growing set of tasks. As we head deeper into the second half of the chessboard — into the period where continuing exponential increases in computing power yield astonishing results — we expect that economic disruptions will only grow as well. But we clearly are not pessimists about technology and its impacts.

To race with machines, not against them

In medicine, law, finance, retailing, manufacturing, and even scientific discovery, the key to winning the race is not to compete against machines but to compete with machines. … Fortunately, humans are strongest exactly where computers are weak, creating a potentially beautiful partnership. So … we want to focus on recommendations in two areas: improving the rate and quality of organizational innovation, and increasing human capital — ensuring that people have the skills they need to participate in todayʼs economy, and tomorrowʼs. Making progress in these two areas will be the best way to allow human workers and institutions to race with machines, not against them.
