This grant funds efforts by Avi Goldfarb, Joshua Gans, and Ajay Agrawal, three leading economists from the University of Toronto, and Catherine Tucker, Sloan Distinguished Professor of Management at MIT, to facilitate rigorous research on the economics of artificial intelligence (AI). Building on a successful conference on the economics of AI held in Toronto in 2017, the team plans to hold a series of three more annual conferences on related topics, commissioning papers for each conference, then publishing and disseminating the collected conference proceedings. Over three years, the team anticipates commissioning more than 50 academic papers. The team will also organize extensive training, support, and other services for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in studying the economics of AI. The plan is to train more than 90 early-career researchers in advanced methodological and analytic techniques.
