Artificial Intelligence and the Economy

Diese Veranstaltung liegt in der Vergangenheit.

Chatting with Chat GPT may be fun – but what are the economic consequences of the advancements in Artificial Intelligence? Both high hopes and serious concerns are tied to the new technology. Will it lead to mass unemployment and erode privacy, or will it help to tackling climate change and decreasing inequalities across the globe? Accordingly, should governments support the development of AI-applications, or should they ban it?

To inform the political debate around Artificial Intelligence, reliable research results are needed. This conference aims at taking stock of the state of research on the various impacts Artificial Intelligence may have on economic developments. Bringing together scholars from different subdisciplines and with different research foci, it will enhance our knowledge on the economic impacts of AI – and spur further research on that important matter.
