The event has reached capacity. Registration is no longer available for the conference, but you may still register for the Virtual Career Fair.

Conventional theory building, model development, and causal inference are necessary but no longer sufficient tools for Tech companies thriving in today’s economic environment. The emergence of powerful software algorithms, next-generation experiments, big data, commodification of processing power, scalable platform computing, A.I., and machine learning are generating profound change for business economists and their academic colleagues.

Arranged around the theme Economics in the Age of Algorithms, Experiments, and A.I., TEC2017 brings together leading thinkers in economics and data science in an intellectual exchange on how interdisciplinary developments in these fields are impacting today’s approaches, frameworks, tools, and techniques. World-class business economists will elaborate on the emerging and future data science needs in economic research and practice. NABE is pleased to co-host the inaugural Tech Economic Conference with Founding Partners Amazon, Google, IBM, Intel, Netflix, and Zillow.
