New Frontiers in Behavioural Economics| Predictive Policy and Machine Learning

IPAA and the BETA unit at PM&C are pleased to host an address on Behavioural Economics.

IPAA ACT and the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government (BETA) are excited to host behavioural economics’ global star Sendhil Mullainathan and rising young academic Ziad Obermeyer.  
 
In his first visit to Australia, Sendhil will present on predictive policy – how it can solve some of society’s most difficult problems and why it matters to government policy making. His research is paving the way in solving social problems with behavioural economics, relevant for all policy makers and public servants.
