Current Research Initiatives

Based on the impact of AI on the business environment, including digital trade, the Center for Global Business current research initiatives are in line to (1) track global trends in the technology race and understand how this will affect the global distribution of production and jobs; (2) understand the gains from using AI and other technologies in different industries and benchmarking these uses against those in other countries; (3) exploit the full potential of the new technologies and business models by taking advantage of opportunities in international markets; (4) mitigate adverse effects of the technologies on the labor force and society; and (5) increase the potential for various policy actions by U.S. and foreign governments (such as data localization laws) to influence U.S. global competitiveness and trade.
