Gen AI & Market Power: What Role for Antitrust Regulators?

AI solutionism vs AI catastrophism, hype and fearmongering, new rules and new business models. On Wednesday, 12 July 2023, 5-6:30 PM (CET), 4-5:30 PM (UK), 11 AM-12:30 PM (EST), the CEPR Competition Policy RPN organised a discussion between top economists and antitrust regulators on the risk of market power being “grandfathered” into the future by current digital giants, and protecting emerging competition in Gen AI.

Daron Acemoglu (Institute Professor, MIT & Research Fellow, CEPR) will discuss insights from his new book (Power and Progress, with S. Johnson, Hachette 2023) with Andreas Mundt (President, Bundeskartellamt), Joshua Gans (Professor of Management, University of Toronto, co-author of Power and Prediction: the Disruptive Economics of AI, 2022), Susan Athey (Professor of Economics, Stanford Graduate School of Business and Chief Economist, US DOJ Antitrust Division).

Chaired by Cristina Caffarra (Keystone Europe & Competition Policy RPN Co-Founder and Steering Committee Vice-Chair).
