An economist uncovered

15 December 2005

Tim Harford wrote an excellent piece for openDemocracy earlier this year on Thomas Schelling - winner of the so-called "Nobel prize for economics" - and his game theory. I read his columns in the UK Financial Times regularly, but only today took a look at his blog, after a recommendation from another blogger mate of mine last week.

I especially like this post, where Harford imagines his wife and their babysitter as two different states negotiating at the WTO. It pretty much sums up my feelings about trade negotiation...

Should we allow artificial intelligence to manage migration?

How is artificial intelligence being used in governing migration? What are the risks and opportunities that the emerging technology raises for both the state and the individual crossing a country’s borders?
