Our Vision

Our moonshot goal is to build an AI social planner that learns optimal economic policies for the real world. We aim to develop more sophisticated AI policy models that meet usability requirements, such as explainability and robustness, to recommend real-world economic policies that improve social welfare.

This project seeks to scale up the AI Economist (Zheng et al., 2020). We hope to leverage reinforcement learning and machine learning techniques to develop a tool that will automate and improve tasks such as policy design, policy evaluation, and economic objective optimization, which will allow economists and policymakers to focus on the end goal: improving social welfare.
