A leading authority on the business, legal, and public policy implications of emerging technologies, Wharton School professor Kevin Werbach has helped to develop the U.S. government’s approach to internet policy and pioneered research into cutting edge technologies.
For more than twenty years, Kevin Werbach has been a leading thinker on cutting edge trends in information technology. Straddling the corporate, government, startup, and academic worlds, he has consistently spotted critical issues ahead of the curve. At the Federal Communications Commission and as a member of the Presidential Transition Team, he helped develop the U.S. regulatory approach to the internet. His first book, For the Win (2012), and his massive open online course with nearly half a million learners showed how motivational techniques from games could be applied to business. Werbach created the first business school course on legal and ethical considerations for big data, such as privacy, algorithmic bias, and manipulation.
Werbach's latest book, The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust (2018), cuts through the hype around blockchain technology to explain the real value propositions—and the risks—of cryptocurrencies and distributed ledgers. His rare ability to translate between the languages of business, law, and engineering makes him an insightful and provocative speaker for any audience.
