Machine Learning in Economics


Machine Learning in Economics Summer Conference

The MLESC conference brings together researchers working at the intersection of machine learning and economics. It will focus on research studying how machine learning methods (e.g., supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms, machine vision, text analysis) may be used to tackle existing questions and open new directions in fields like behavioral economics, applied microeconomics, development, and macroeconomics.

The Future of Tech: How A.I. Will Transform EMEA Labor Markets

Advances in technology and artificial intelligence are going to fundamentally reshape jobs, industries, and economies.

But just how significant will those changes be for the economies of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa?

One 2023 report by a group of Goldman Sachs economists predicts that about two-thirds of current jobs in Europe and the US are exposed to some degree of A.I. automation, while up to a quarter of all work could be completely replaced with A.I.. Economists estimate that about 300 million full-time jobs could be lost globally to this type of automation.

How should policymakers, companies, and workers in EMEA countries respond? Is it all bad news, or does the coming wave of technological innovation present humans with new opportunities?

Join us virtually to discuss what lies ahead for the economies of EMEA.
