New sources of data and ways to analyse them with machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and complexity science can help to capture the emergence of new scientific fields, technologies, industries and occupations, improving our ability to measure and model economic change and inform policy, funding and investment decisions. This includes how to identify and support emerging technologies and industries, level up local economies, make innovation more inclusive and accelerate the transition to a green economy.
This workshop will bring leading scholars, policymakers and statistical agencies at the forefront of this agenda together to discuss the state of the art and what’s needed to maximise the impact of these new data sources and methods on our understanding of the economy and the effectiveness of economic and research and innovation policy.
