Data, Learning, and Markets

October 10-12, 2022

Register to Attend

 

Online markets that match buyers and sellers are ubiquitous. Well-known examples include Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, and eBay. All of these online markets rely on machine learning algorithms to learn from past data to maximize profit and/or utility of the platform to users. Additionally, new markets are emerging for data itself: an example is the emerging research on the design of privacy-preserving mechanisms for the possible release of private data by individuals for the greater good of society.

This workshop explores theoretical aspects of the interplay between data science, machine learning, game theory, and economics for the design of markets using data and for the design of data markets. The program includes plenary research talks and poster presentations.

Join us in person on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the first C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute workshop of 2022.
