About the MIT IDE

The Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE) is a major effort focused on the impact of digital technology on businesses, the economy, and society. Drawing on MIT Sloan’s strengths in technology and innovation, it’s internationally recognized faculty, and more than a decade of research and partnership with MIT Sloan’s Center for Digital Business, the IDE is analyzing the broad sociological changes brought about by the advance and spread of digital technology.

The Annual Conference is the IDE’s flagship event, bringing together our thought leaders, researchers, and industry stakeholders for a day-long deep dive into the latest research on the digital economy.
