Applications in Economics

Not a lot of research in economics has been done using ML (Machine Learning, not Maximum Likelihood!), but numbers are growing. I believe, we will see a exponential growth in near future.

Bringing cutting-edge machine learning methods into econometrics is currently an active area. Leading economists who are active in machine learning include:

Victor Chernozhukov:
Alex Belloni:
Christian Hansen:
Susan Athey:
Guido Imbens:

In this page, I will try to compile a list of already published work in economics that used ML and make a list of  possible areas in economics where ML can be used successfully.
