Developing and applying AI: Core and non-core AI

Developing and applying AI: Core and non-core AI

February 6, 2021clock60 mins

AI technologies are still in their relative infancy but already promise to have a strong effect on production and, consequently, jobs. To help understand the state of the art and the directions AI will take, this session will discuss how to distinguish core versus non-core (i.e. applications) AI-related developments. It will further discuss experimental evidence based on web-reading at scale about the economic agents (i.e. firms, universities, etc.) that are active in the AI space, as well as research using trademark data to shed light on firms developing and positioning AI-related goods and services in the marketplace. Panellists will discuss ongoing approaches and help explore ways forward to deepen our understanding.
