Economics & new technologies

Objectives
The use of new technology broaden the scope of economics analysis, and allow the practitioner to elaborate different strategies.

Therefore, I had in mind to do a presentation in order to show how we can leverage technology to get the best of the data. The presentation is not meant to learn how to code, instead, to see the possibilities with the new technologies.

In the presentation, you will see:
How to use an API to get more and accurate information: example from
How to use Deep Learning to create new features:
How to convert text into
How to extract verbs, nouns and adjectives in a document:
How to leverage state-of-the-art
to predict sentiment from a document
How to convert
in a PDF into a dataframe
Search data with

Tool:
Python

Requirement
There is no prior requirement. The basic idea behind the presentation is to see somehow what can be done using new tools and how an economist can borrow techniques from the data science world.

The presentation will use a recent research I’m doing about “Environmental, Social, and Governance”

The workflow is the following:
Download data and predict gender
Flag ESG papers
Compute sentiment and cluster papers using the abstract
Compute ESG expertise score
Combine all information
