Socio Economic Lecture: Public Policy in the Age of Artificial Intelligence 2019 – Education Event in Abu Dhabi
This lecture hosted by the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute highlights the future mindset required to address socio-economic challenges and to ensure that new technology promotes the common good.
The artificial intelligence/data revolution will affect our lives in ways unrivaled by previous revolutions, and while it will substantially
raise our standards of living and improve our health, almost every labour market will be disrupted, leading to widespread concerns about the future of labour.
Speaker Jean Tirole, Chairman of the Executive Committee for the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST) will discuss how large platforms and authoritarian governments will use artificial intelligence to strengthen their dominance on the economic and political spheres, including new emerging frameworks for competition and fiscal policies.
