Abstract [en]

There are many signs indicating that artificial intelligence – reproduction of the cognitive functions that humans have such as learning and problem solving by machines– has been spreading among various industries. The rise of artificial intelligence – as this article conceptualize as a general purpose technology –   is affecting not only the cognitive dimension of technological innovation systems but also the organizational, institutional and economic dimensions. However, from a technological point of view, studies in technological innovation systems often focus on specific purpose technologies. What about general purpose technologies – which open up new opportunities rather than offering complete final solutions? In this paper, we aim to explore how a general purpose technology affects the innovation systems. In order to do so, we conduct a qualitative case study on artificial intelligence in mining and metal producing industry of Sweden. Our contribution is twofold. Firstly, we clarify how artificial intelligence can be conceptualized as a general purpose technology in innovation systems perspective. Secondly, we find out how a general purpose technology affects the dynamics of innovation systems.
