Big Data, AI, and Algorithms: Do New Technologies Require New Approaches to Competition Law?

The growing importance of big data, artificial intelligence, and algorithms has stimulated an intense debate about their implications for competition law. This conference, which will also feature a keynote address by former U.S. Federal Trade Commission Chair Maureen Ohlhausen, will explore the technical and economic foundations of big data and examine the proper application of concepts such as algorithmic collusion, abuse of dominance, and merger analysis.

The conference is co-organized by the Mannheim Center for Competition and Innovation of the University of Mannheim, and the Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, supported by the Silicon Flatirons Center at the University of Colorado Boulder and the Centre for European Policy Studies.
