Why Behavioral Economics needs Artificial Intelligence; and Artificial Intelligence needs Behavioral Economics


Sendhil Mullainathan (Chicago Booth) will present the ninth annual Paul Volcker Lecture in Behavioral Economics. Mullainathan is the Roman Family University Professor of Computation and Behavioral Science at Chicago Booth. His current research uses machine learning to understand complex problems in human behavior, social policy, and especially medicine, where computational techniques have the potential to uncover biomedical insights from large-scale health data. In past work he has combined insights from economics and behavioral science with causal inference tools—lab, field, and natural experiments—to study social problems such as discrimination and poverty.
