PKUSSI Artificial Intelligence vs. Game Theory

04/19 2018

We invite you to delve into the fascinating world of artificial intelligence and game theory. The implications of recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have spurred heated debate globally. As science fiction starts to become reality, AI products are slowly infiltrating homes and workplaces. This is raising concerns about the potential detrimental effects of AI on the job market, or even about the dangers of an AI singularity, where sentient robots take over the world and destroy humans.

Notwithstanding lingering discontent, faint murmurs and mild protests among economists, there is no denying the fact that game theory has assumed central importance in modern economics. In 1994 the first Nobel award to three game theorists – including mathematician John Nash – officially recognized the enviable role that game theory has played in advancing and propelling economic theory.

PKUSSI is offering two courses on artificial intelligence and game theory. For more information, please visit:
