ECO353H1S Special Topics in Economics with Data Analytics: Economics of Algorithms

Algorithms make consequential decisions in our society on everything from music, medicine, transportation, criminal justice, and beyond. As a result, policymakers and academics are becoming increasingly concerned with the issues that arise in their applications. This course uses theoretical and empirical analysis to explore the economics of algorithms. We start by introducing some basics of algorithms and the associated economic tradeoffs. Then we explore how algorithms affect the labor market, industrial organization, and information economy.
