Working Papers

Our research group is focusing on the impacts of AI and IT in business and society. Specifically, we are examining how firms develop AI and robot strategies for innovation, how advanced AI technologies (e.g., generative AI, deep learning, computer vision) affect tech platforms, and how we can mitigate the unintended consequences of AI and IT. For some papers, we share interactive visualization and datasets. Working papers are available upon request.
