Brattle Economist Discusses 2018 ABA Antitrust Section Spring Meeting Panel on Artificial Intelligence

Brattle Senior Consultant Michelle Cleary has authored an article in the ABA Antitrust Section Civil Practice & Procedure Committee’s Young Lawyers Advisory Panel’s publication: Perspectives in Antitrust, which provides details about a program the Committee sponsored at the 2018 Spring Meeting.

The panel, “Price-Bots, Are R2-D2 and C-3PO Tacitly Colluding?,” delved into the increasing sophistication of artificial intelligence and whether antitrust enforcers need to adapt their toolset to assess liability and protect consumers. As pricing algorithms become more commonplace and complex, the potential for anticompetitive outcomes may increase.

The article detailing the panel’s discussion is available to download below and features Brattle Academic Advisor, Joshua Gans, among other panelists.
