Our Changing Economics Landscape - 11/11 Daypass *TIME CHANGE* - The Economic Impact of Harnessing Artificial Intelligence *TIME CHANGE 11:00am-12:30pm*
Artificial Intelligence technologies are expected to have a meaningful impact on the U.S. economy. After a brief introduction of AI from a technology perspective, we will learn about anticipated effects of AI on productivity and economic growth in the U.S. Further, how the U.S. should be thinking about policy (e.g., regulation) to address AI? We will also review the potential global effects on economies and societies, including competition among countries, and impacts on the wealth gaps between developed and developing countries. Robert Seamans (Ph.D., UC Berkeley) is an Associate Professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and Director of the Center for the Future of Management. Professor Seamans’ research focuses on how firms use technology in their strategic interactions with each other, and also focuses on the economic consequences of AI, robotics and other advanced technologies. His research has been published in leading academic journals and been cited in numerous outlets including The Atlantic, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and others. In 2015, Professor Seamans was appointed as the Senior Economist for technology and innovation on President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers.
