Innovating at the Inflection Point: Creating a Better World
This program offers a fresh approach—a doer's approach—to innovating. Aspiring innovators will explore how to turn their “hunches” into tangible, real-world problems by learning to envision the organizations that can solve them. You will discover the advantages of converting challenges into opportunities and acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovating.
Sustainability in the face of increasingly severe climate change: What, practically speaking, does that mean for the corporate world? For manufacturing, chemical, materials and process companies, it means transforming to low-emissions methods and technologies – and exploiting the growth of renewable energy to power this transformation. For other corporate enterprises it also means adaptation – leveraging computation and communications technologies for better forecasting, resilience and risk mitigation.
Day 1 of this event will showcase bold, innovative faculty, impactful MIT research programs and disruptive startups all working to decarbonize industrial processes and improve resilience. Building on this, Day 2 will feature a morning of workshops to engage more deeply with several leading MIT centers who are dedicated to solving industrial sustainability challenges in water, emissions and materials.
How does policy impact fintech innovation? This webinar will highlight the implications for the financial services industry and discuss how policy-makers worldwide have attempted to strike the right balance of fostering innovation while reducing risk.
The pandemic forced digital transformation upon businesses as they saw the need for greater resiliency and flexibility. Leading companies adapted their digital transformation strategies and pivot to move some of their activities and assets to cyberspace, not only to survive but also thrive in an evolving digital economy.

The annual MIT Digital Technology and Strategy Conference explores the latest MIT research and its impact across industries. The conference highlights MIT’s cutting-edge research in areas such as digital twins, metaverse, synthetic realities, cybersecurity, AI/ML, synthetic data, platform business, Web3, digital transformation, pathways for digital value, work of the future, and more.
The world is changing. Dramatic new technologies in areas as diverse as AI, synthetic biology and energy offer stunning potential for our shared future – in prosperity, health, education and beyond. However, we are also facing growing, possibly existential, social, economic, and environmental challenges. It is increasingly clear that our technological and social choices are deeply intertwined – with implications at the scale of the individual, the enterprise, the nation state and the global community. How can we best navigate these vital yet treacherous waters? How do we achieve the promise of the future, without falling to its perils?
