The Solari Lecture 2023 will welcome Professor Esther Duflo, the Abdul Latif Jameel Professor of Poverty Alleviation and Development Economics in the Department of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and laureate of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2019. She will address the topic: Good Economics for Warmer Times.
Climate change is not just about getting the right technology. It is also about changing behavior and policies. And it is not (only) about the end of the world: it is also about the damage it does, today, mainly to poor people around the world. In this lecture, Professor Duflo will discuss some of what we know about the impact of climate change on poor countries, and what we know and what we do not know about changing behavior and policies.
Professor Duflo was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for her experimental approach to alleviating global poverty. In her research, she seeks to understand the economic lives of the poor, with the aim to help design and evaluate social policies. She has worked on health, education, financial inclusion, environment, and governance.
The Solari Lecture welcomes distinguished guests specialized in economics and econometrics, in memory of Luigi Solari, professor at the University of Geneva and pioneer in introducing research in econometrics in Switzerland. Since its first edition in 1979, this conference has featured several notable guest speakers, e.g., Jan Tinbergen, Richard Stone, Robert Engle, Bengt Holmstrom, and Jean Tirole.
Learn how to bring collaborative online international learning (COIL) to your course by attending this energizing event.
Content will include the WHY of COIL for business classes, examples of COIL projects, benefits to business students across the globe, the COIL design sequence – and resources for finding an international partner to work with.

Faculty from GBSN institutions interested in delivering a COIL class are invited to attend one of two information sessions on September 15 and October 20, 2023 at 12pm EDT. Faculty will have the opportunity to be matched with faculty from another institution for COIL course development. A guided design sprint will be offered to select faculty pairs in spring 2024. The goal of the program is to support faculty connections and adoption of COIL pedagogy for teaching. The program is sponsored by the Title VI CIBER COIL Network through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Artificial Intelligence & Knowledge Processing is playing a vital role in changing most of the sectors’ processes and landscape. AI has an enormous impact on various automation industries and their functioning converting traditional industries to AI-based factories. New algorithms are changing the way business processes and results are analyzed and predicted. Knowledge processing is the act of comprehending and then representing human knowledge in data structures; semantic models, which are conceptual diagrams of data as they relate to the real world; and heuristics, which are principles that lead to answers to every AI challenge. The way how a human think, knowledge processing transforms the data into knowledge and makes the machine think like a human and makes better decisions. This makes the humans work simple, but it has some ethical concerns that need to be sorted out. This AI and knowledge processing conference addresses the drawbacks and challenges in current practices in various sectors. The research area includes Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Decision Support Systems, Knowledge representation, semantics, Bigdata analytics, Intelligent systems, fuzzy-based neural networks and other fields.
