The role of system building agency in regional path creation: Insights from the emergence of artificial intelligence in Montreal

Abstract

The emergence of new industries that are not closely related to existing regional paths remains an underexplained process in evolutionary economic geography. This paper responds to this gap through a case study of a maturing ecosystem of activity related to artificial intelligence in Montreal. Conceptually it brings together recent thinking in economic geography about agency in path development with complementary concepts from the literature on technological innovation systems. The empirical findings demonstrate the role of multiple agents in system building and legitimation activities that have varied across pre-formative and formative phases of new path development in this analytical knowledge field.
