Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) highlight the potential of this technology to affect productivity, growth, inequality, market power, innovation, and employment. This volume seeks to set the agenda for economic research on the impact of AI. It covers four broad themes: AI as a general purpose technology; the relationships between AI, growth, jobs, and inequality; regulatory responses to changes brought on by AI; and the effects of AI on the way economic research is conducted. It explores the economic influence of machine learning, the branch of computational statistics that has driven much of the recent excitement around AI, as well as the economic impact of robotics and automation and the potential economic consequences of a still-hypothetical artificial general intelligence. The volume provides frameworks for understanding the economic impact of AI and identifies a number of open research questions.Contributors:Daron Acemoglu, Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyPhilippe Aghion, Collge de FranceAjay Agrawal, University of TorontoSusan Athey, Stanford UniversityJames Bessen, Boston University School of LawErik Brynjolfsson, MIT Sloan School of ManagementColin F.
