Artificial intelligence and competition law

This special issue offers the antitrust community the opportunity to reflect on how AI is de facto affecting all markets—thus competition law. It shows what competition law can learn from AI and viceversa. The issues discussed in these articles include the adoption of algorithms and computational tools in the antitrust domain, the challenges of detecting anticompetitive behavior performed by AI algorithms (e.g. reinforcement learning algorithms), and competition law and the IoT. The authors are scholars, antitrust enforcers, and practitioners who provide us with three different perspectives on the matter of AI and competition law.
