About

We conduct groundbreaking research focused on the impact of the digital economy

The Stanford Digital Economy Lab brings together an interdisciplinary group of passionate researchers to study how digital technologies are transforming work, organizations, and the economy. Our insights help companies, policymakers, students, and professionals rise to the challenges and opportunities created by digitization.

The Lab is part of the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) and co-sponsored by the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).

 The Lab is directed by Dr. Erik Brynjolfsson, whose research focuses on the economic implications of digital technologies and AI.

THE FUTURE OF WORK
We believe people have the power to shape the future of work and that companies building AI must focus on the human impact of their endeavors.

We also believe in the power of human work and that augmenting human capabilities with machine capabilities will lead to the most profitable gains for everyone.

  • The Stanford Digital Economy Lab encourages dialogue and collaboration across the domains of economics, management, engineering, policy, and beyond. 

HUMAN-CENTERED RESEARCH
The impact of a changing economy is being felt by everyone--crossing boundaries of wealth, status, geography, and culture. We are committed to lowering the barriers to understanding how the digital economy will shape our future with accessible, evidence-based information spanning a wide range of media.
