Bernardo Buarque is a PhD candidate working for the Spatial Dynamics Lab at the University College Dublin (UCD). Bernardo holds a scholarship from the European Research Council (ERC) and is working alongside Prof. Dieter Kogler on the project "Technology Evolution in Regional Economies (TechEvo)." The main objective of the said project is to understand how specific knowledge capabilities influence the evolution of local technology trajectories and thus shape the geographies of economic prosperity. Using data from scientific publications and patents, Bernardo seeks to estimate the competence of regions to produce certain technologies. In the past, he examined the creation and diffusion of Artificial Intelligence across Europe and now seeks to develop an evolutionary game theory model to study the patterns of regional specialization, and ultimately appraise which places have the core competence to produce new, emergent technologies - e.g., AI.
