TEC2020 will convene virtually on NABE's digital conference platform, November 9-11, 2020.

Arranged around the theme "Economics in the Age of Algorithms, Experiments, and A.I.," TEC2020 brings together leading thinkers in economics and data science in an intellectual exchange on how interdisciplinary developments in these fields are impacting today’s approaches, frameworks, tools, and techniques. World-class business economists will elaborate on the emerging and future data science needs in economic research and practice. NABE is pleased to co-host TEC2020 with Founding Partners Amazon, Google, and Netflix.

Last year's conference attracted over 600 attendees, making it the largest conference in NABE history. We expect TEC2020 to be even bigger, as it will be cost-effective, and most importantly, COVID-free! 

TEC2020 will also include the NABE Industry Job Fair

Topics include:

  • Advancing the Economics Toolkit: Deep Learning and Double Machine Learning
  • Future of AI 
  • Nowcasting with Real-Time Data
  • Outlook and Impact of Remote Work
