    Developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI), particularly Machine Learning (ML) and its increasing use in the industry over the last few years, provide strategy researchers with many opportunities.

    The third AI & Strategy consortium intends to bring together a set of researchers interested in one or more of the themes described below through an annual meeting. This meeting will be held virtually on January 21 and 22, 2022, between 8:30 – 11:15 AM ET (9:30 PM to 12.15 midnight Singapore time; 7.00 PM – 9:45 PM, India). The conference is sponsored by the Srini Raju Center for IT and the Networked Economy (SRITNE).  As with last year's conference, the three objectives of this conference are  

    • To provide a focused forum of scholars, students, and editors to seed and discuss work in the field of strategy that is contextually or empirically related to AI
    • To provide a forum spanning both industry and academia to accelerate learning of how AI can transform organizations and their strategies
    • To facilitate inter-disciplinary collaboration between computer scientists doing interesting work in AI/ML and strategy scholars, especially those interested in applying some of these techniques in their scholarly work.


    Through this conference, we would like to continue to create an emerging body of knowledge that focuses on how the advent of AI/ML adds to a strategy researcher's tool, understand how it will shape decision making, firm strategies, and alter competitive advantage. Hence, possible topics of interest include but are not limited to the following

    • How AI influences organizational learning and decision making
    • How the adoption of AI might shape and alter the competitive advantage
    • How the advent of AI might influence the performance of incumbents in an industry
    • New statistical methods that are appropriate for strategy research that utilizes AI or ML
    • Management issues including ethics and culture that might influence the adoption of AI or the subsequent performance of firms that adopted AI.

    The workshop will include virtual paper and poster presentations. If you are interested in attending the conference, please register at https://forms.office.com/r/vK53jTRGbf
