Guido Imbens is one of the most authoritative econometrists in the world. After studying econometrics in Rotterdam, he continued his career in the USA. Imbens is best known for having developed methods that produce an impartial measure of the impact of a policy on the economy. Policymakers and researchers use these methods to predict whether it is actually helpful to retrain redundant workers for new jobs, for example. More recently, Imbens has teamed with researchers at Facebook and Amazon to study artificial intelligence and machine learning.
