(posted on behalf of @Andrew Nixon , PhD Student Representative & GPT-3, OpenAI) ​ I spend a good amount of time on Twitter and my feed has recently been captivated by weird AI-generated images from DALL-E mini by Hugging Face . It’s an open-source model that people have been using to make a computer draw odd scenarios like “ A chicken nugget smoking a cigarette in the rain ” or “ Youtuber doing a funeral unboxing ”. These have been relatively harmless demonstrations of how advanced AI systems have become at making art and as this is open-source technology, you can rest assured that the proprietary systems are much, much better. For example, DALLE-2 ...

(posted on behalf of @Aviel Cogan and @Tobias Pret ) It is widely acknowledged that we are experiencing a “replication crisis.” As research results are often difficult or impossible to replicate, the credibility of scientific work has been questioned. Entrepreneurship scholars have long acknowledged the importance of replication studies, but these rarely appear in top journals. Consequently, scholars largely avoid replicating entrepreneurship research to the detriment of our field’s ability to test, confirm, and challenge extant theories. In an effort to encourage and facilitate replication studies, @Christopher Crawford and colleagues published an ...

Let us introduce Susan Cohen of the University of Georgia which is in Athens, Georgia, USA. Susan, you recently joined the TIM Executive Committee as an At Large member, so… What are your research interests right now? Understanding how organizations learn and innovate has always been my primary interest and it continues to be a driving force in my work. Lately, I’ve been exploring how start-ups learn and innovate. Much of my work is conducted in accelerator programs -- short entrepreneurial training programs that provide cohorts of start-ups education, mentorship, and often seed funding. They also provide scholars like me a lab to observe the start-ups ...

(posted on behalf of @Andrew Nixon , PhD Representative) ​ Okay, I’ll admit it, if I have a bent in this blog series, it has been to highlight the shift in policy towards a more progressive version of antitrust enforcement (or competition policy for those outside of the U.S.) and how these issues are relevant for our field. I will say this one last piece and then get back to writing the generic posts with tips and tricks for PhD students and interviews with faculty. So, here are three reasons I think this is a fruitful area of exploration for entrepreneurship scholars: 1) Entrepreneurs themselves are openly saying that something is ...

(posted on behalf of @Tobias Pret and @Aviel Cogan ) ​ Entrepreneurs who operate in nascent markets are often faced with a lack of support. One way to arouse interest in and enthusiasm for a new venture within those markets is to pitch the idea in ways that explicitly tie the venture to emerging hype about the nascent market—a collective vision and promise for the market’s future. In so doing, hype can serve as a means to generate early access to resources and other forms of support from stakeholders. However, the more entrepreneurs link their new ventures to such emerging hype, the greater the risk that they will face heightened expectations which ...
