This post was NOT written by ChatGPT! You may be tired of hearing about the bot, but the influence of advanced technologies like generative AI is growing in economics and every other field. Absolutely Interdisciplinary is the annual conference of the Schwartz-Reisman Institute and it has dedicated this year to getting real with artificial intelligence and the future of work.
The conference runs June 20, 21 and 22 with a mix of in-person, broadcast and online events. Speakers will include computer science pioneer Rich Sutton, philosopher of cognitive science Julia Haas, critical theorist N. Katherine Hayles, and a keynote by Blaise Agüera y Arcas of Google Research.
Department of Economics folks like Michelle Alexopoulos, Marlène Koffi, and Eva Vivalt are affiliated with the Swartz-Reisman Institute.
