Additional Course Details: 

This course will provide students with a survey of economic models, applied to Artificial Intelligence (AI). The course is divided into three sections. In the first one, we introduce the concept of AI as a General-Purpose Technology that can improve prediction. In the second part, we look at how improved prediction can help decision-making under uncertainty. Finally, we analyze how AI can impact several aspects of business, society, and in particular the labor market.
