Andrew McAfee of MIT described to donors what the technological hallmarks of the 21st century — interconnectedness and artificial intelligence — mean for the workforce. In a conversation with David Egner of the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, McAfee denounced the fear often associated with artificial intelligence, citing AI as a powerful tool to solve society’s challenges. McAfee explained the redistribution of prosperity that often accompanies technological advancement and the resultant need for experimentation and innovation in mid-career upskilling, as well as for increased dynamism in the American workplace. When asked what skills will make a successful worker in the future, McAfee identified three: quantitative reasoning, social competence, and the ability to “poke at the world” and point out problems that need solving.
