Susan Athey, Economics of Technology Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Business, gave a lecture at Carnegie Mellon University on the impact of the internet on the news media.
The lecture was part of the Science, Technology, and Policy Forum at CMU, which aims to spark dynamic, campus-wide dialogue on scientific and technological innovation and their potential societal and policy impacts. Throughout the academic year, CMU will host recognized internal and external thought leaders who will expose faculty, students, and staff to ways in which research extends beyond the laboratory. The forum also gives the Pittsburgh community an opportunity to hear leading scientists, technologists, and policy experts discuss their fields, potentially promoting science and technology as a critical public good. All lectures and panels are open to the campus community and public.
