As technology fundamentally changes how companies operate, employees will need to hone new skills and build new relationships. On May 23, 2017, the MIT Sloan School of Management hosted the 14th annual CIO Symposium: "The CIO Adventure: Now, Next and… Beyond." The one-day event brought senior IT executives together to discuss key technologies, including IoT, AI, blockchain, Big Data, DevOps, cloud computing, and cybersecurity. The main idea was to help prepare these tech leaders for challenges they face, including shepherding ongoing digital transformations, building a digital organization, and managing IT talent. This series highlights insightful sessions from the event.

The program included four workshops, Computational Personality Recognition (Shared Task) (WS-13-01), Social Computing for Workforce 2.0 (WS-13-02), Social Media Visualization 2 (WS-13-03), and When the City Meets the Citizen (WS-13-04). The Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition allowed participants to compare the results of their systems on a common benchmark. Unlike competitive shared tasks, the workshop did not focus just on performance, but rather on discovering which feature sets, resources, and learning techniques are useful in the extraction of personality from text. Organizers provided two gold-standard labeled data sets (released 1 February 2013): essays.zip, Participants were required to use at least one of the data sets provided by the organizers for their experiments; provide the files used for the experiments; and submit a short paper reporting all the information about features, resources, and techniques used in the experiments, and discussing results.
