Seminar: New Topics in Applied Econometrics: Machine Learning, Big Data, and Other Recent Developments
Dr. Lukas Mergele and Dr. Sven Resnjanskij
Organizational meeting: 4 October, 2021 at 2 pm via Zoom
Seminar: 1-2 December, 2021
The seminar covers recent topics in applied econometrics. Some of these topics relate to the intersection of applied econometrics and new tools developed in the field of machine learning. Other topics include more traditional econometric methods that became popular again over the recent years. Most topics will be completely new for bachelor students. Hence, rather than focus on the technical details, both, the seminar presentation and the seminar paper should give an introduction to the topic that provides a strong intuition and discusses recent applications in the economics literature.
