Advances in information technologies, such as mobile, cloud, and AI, hold promise for transforming our society. But their successful implementation depends on our ability to holistically address technical, economic, and social issues. Sen’s interdisciplinary research accounts for these factors in designing IT systems and incentive schemes that help businesses and users make optimal decisions. His pioneering work on “smart data pricing” explores ways to reduce Internet congestion and realize affordable data plans for wider access.
