Title: Regional branching and Artificial Intelligence: an empirical analysis of technological specialization in European provinces
Presenter: Elettra D’Amico, PhD student at Politenico di Torino in Management, Production and Design and Visiting PhD at Henley Business School.
Co-authors- Professor Alberto De Marco (Politenico di Torino) and Dr Alessandra Colombelli (Collegio Carlo Alberto)
Room: 108, HBS
This paper aims to establish the role played by Artificial Intelligence (AI), as a key enabling technology (KET), in regional branching. Considering its general-purpose properties, we investigate the effect that AI may have on developing new technological specializations in European provinces. The objective of the paper is to analyze the impact of local availability of AI-related knowledge and competencies – measured via patents– on the subsequent evolution in technological specialization. The empirical analysis is based on a database collecting all patents filed at the European Patent Office (EPO) from 1980 to 2018 and geo-localized at the NUTS3 level. We implement an original methodology to identify AI patents that rely on the presence of specific technological codes and keywords (WIPO, 2019). Our preliminary results provide support for regional branching policies and the management of innovation.
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Regional Branching, Revealed Technology Advantage, Innovation, Relatedness, Patents
