Timlin Lecture in Economics: with special guest speaker Dr. Charles Noussiar, University of Arizona

March 8, 2017

5pm Neatby-Timlin Theatre (Arts 241)

There will be a reception following the lecture


Title: Economic Decision Making: Present and Future 

This lecture surveys some features of human decision making and how they differ from traditional economic models. Humans are limited in their ability to calculate, swayed by their emotions, and at times motivated by forces that some economists have failed to appreciate. However, the replacement of human with artificial decision makers is changing the economy. I consider some of the principal ways in which artificial intelligence can be expected to influence how individuals make decisions and its broader impact on the economy.


This seminar is sponsored by the Timlin Trust, Department of Economics
