We live in strange times. A machine plays the strategy game Go better than any human; upstarts like Apple and Google destroy industry stalwarts such as Nokia; ideas gleaned from crowdsourcing are repeatedly more innovative than corporate research labs.
In Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing the Digital Revolution, Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson, MIT researchers and co-authors of the bestselling The Second Machine Age, offer an examination of the integration of minds and machines, of products and platforms, and of the core and the crowd. In conversation with Microsoft computer scientist Ramez Naam, McAfee and Brynjolfsson deliver a penetrating analysis of a new world and a toolkit for thriving in it.
