Conversation with Jim Bessen on AI, Innovation, Productivity, and Work

Feb 21, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM


AI is reshaping economies and societies across the world, improving efficiency, lowering costs, and promising to generate productivity gains. At the same time AI changes the way we work, has the potential to replace some jobs and transform many occupations. This opening one-on-one discussion will touch upon these issues, examining the role of AI for economies and societies, the implications for labour, innovation, productivity and human capital, and for policy related to those areas, thus setting the scene for the events of the week.
