主题:A leap in the dark: The role of internal and external attentions on firm performance in the AI industry

主讲人:肖书锋,北京大学光华管理学院博士候选人

地点:经管学院B352

主办单位:武汉大学经济与管理学院工商管理系


讲座主要内容:

The artificial intelligence (AI) industry has emerged and attracted substantial attention due to the rapid technological progress. Drawing upon the attention-based view (ABV), we may theorize that a firm’s organizational attention is a key determinant of technological performance in the development of AI industry. However, how a firm’s internal and external attentions influence its technological performance remain unclear. In particular, external media attention, including coverage (more or fewer), content (AI or non-AI related), and attitude (favorable and unfavorable), can serve as boundary conditions to enhance or reduce the effect of organizational attention. Using a sample of US publicly listed firms in the AI industry from 1992 to 2018, we find that AI-related media coverage and unfavorable non-AI-related media attitude strengthen the positive effect of internal attention on technological performance, whereas non-AI-related media coverage and unfavorable AI-related media attitude weaken the effect. In addition, favorable AI-related media attitude does not show significant impact, whereas favorable non-AI-related media attitude weakens the positive effect.
