Who is Kweku?

I am an economist and AI scientist. You can read more about me here.

I am a economist, researcher and AI scientist. I enjoy teaching nearly as much as doing research.

My research interests and expertise are in AI, economics in general and development economics in particular. The promise of making the world a better place is being realized in new ways, from AI to the metaverse. All organizations—from firms and governments to the economics profession—have new opportunities to be more effective and reimagine who they are.

If you find AI and economics interesting—or even just one of the two—you should definitely consider subscribing, because the Responsible Lab Newsletter is here to add value to you. Welcome to the Responsible Lab Newsletter



The name of the Newsletter combines “Responsible AI” (referring to the idea that AI should be focused on social impact) with “Lab” (in the economics sense of the word, meaning a hub where ideas are always rigorously tested). The logo represents a screen “thinking” about (hopefully!) making the world better off.
