The world is falling in love with Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and other software agent/digital assistants that ease life’s pesky daily chores. What if the path to increased productivity is not merely automated attendants, but building digital versions of ourselves that amplify our best human aspects and attributes? These “multiple selves,” yield more productive employees, more empathetic companions, and more creative thinkers. Michael Schrage will be sharing how we can use technology to revisit, rethink, and redesign our "best selves".
