On December 13, 14, and 15 (8 am to 11 am PDT / 5 pm to 8 pm CEST), the CodeX Center at Stanford University is organizing the world’s first (online) conference dedicated to computational antitrust – exploring how legal informatics can foster the automation of antitrust procedures and the improvement of antitrust analysis.
Antitrust agencies from over 50 countries, top academics, and practitioners will discuss advances in the field for what promises to be a groundbreaking conversation. Day 1 (Dec. 13) will be dedicated to introducing computational antitrust, its potential, and limits. During Day 2 (Dec. 14), scholars will explore how computational tools (e.g., natural language processing and topic modeling) could increase our understanding of antitrust case law and legislation. Day 3 (Dec. 15) will be devoted to how other computational tools (e.g., fitness measurement, agent-based modeling, machine learning-based APIs) could augment antitrust agencies’ enforcement capacities.
