Jacob Rosen, Sep 16th, 2015

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Room 186, Myron Taylor Hall

Please join Information Science Department and The Legal Information Institute (LII) for colloquium guest, Jacob Rosen (MIT, MITRE). He explores ways to help tax law policy-makers thwart potential evaders with predictive computational models, the topic of his internationally acclaimed research paper, Tax Non-Compliance Detection Using Co-Evolution of Tax Evasion Risk and Audit Likelihood.

Theme: Articifical Intelligence and Predicting Tax Evasion

Abstract: As the U.S. tax code becomes increasingly complex, particularly in the realm of partnership taxation, various laws are often implemented without considering their effects on the overall tax system. Such laws not only create confusion among well-meaning taxpayers, but can be exploited by highly paid tax professionals in order to create perverse results not anticipated by policy-makers.

This event is open to all students, faculty and staff. Please RSVP at events.cornell.edu. Complimentary refreshments will be available after the presentation.
