Economics in the age of Algorithms, Experiments and AI
Each year, the NABE Tech Economics Conference assembles a diverse group of professionals, including applied economists, data scientists, scholars, and graduate students, to engage in a dialogue on the intersection of economics and data science and their influence on the methodologies, models, instruments, and strategies used by practitioners in tech firms and other industries.
This year I had the opportunity to moderate panel discussions on advances in forecasting and on creating economics and data science initiatives. You can find some of the conference materials here. If you’re a Ph.D. student aspiring to work in the tech industry, this conference is a must-attend event; it gives an insight into what economists do in the industry and is an excellent networking opportunity.
