Accelerating Entrepreneurial Decision-Making Through Hybrid Intelligence
Purpose: Previous studies revealed that around 75 percent of all start-ups fail at an early stage. One main reason for this tremendous failure rate is that entrepreneurs are typically confronted with high levels of uncertainty about the viability of their proposed business idea. Following this argumentation, entrepreneurial decision-making can be defined as complex decision-making problem under both risk and uncertainty. While risk includes quantifiable probabilities, uncertainty describes situations where neither ...
The aim of this dissertation is to explore the innovation potential of crowdsourcing for entrepreneurship. The main focus is to discover how crowd-based infrastructures (i. e., crowdsourcing platforms and crowdfunding platforms) can support entrepreneurs in their innovation activities and how this new paradigm can be used to generate value for customers as well as actors of entrepreneurial ecosystems. The results of the dissertation show that crowdsourcing offers numerous opportunities to support entrepreneurs in ...
Der „elektronische Personalausweis“ in Deutschland: Gesetzgebungsverfahren, Einflussfaktoren und Pfade
Zum 1. November 2010 wird in Deutschland der neue Personalausweis starten, der gegenüber dem bisherigen Dokument drei neue Funktionen enthält: Die Speicherung biometrischer Daten, die optionale Signaturfunktion und den elektronischen Identitätsnachweis, also eine technische Funktion zur elektronischen Authentisierung. Die Rechtsgrundlagen wurden mit der Verabschiedung des neuen Gesetzes über Personalausweise und den elektronischen Identitätsnachweis sowie zur Änderung weiterer Vorschriften am 18. Dezember 2008 im ...
Die Verletzlichkeit der "Informationsgesellschaft"
(Westdeutscher Verlag, Opladen, 2002)
Individual Appropriation of Learning Management Systems — Antecedents and Consequences
IT support in the learning process constitutes a key factor for the success of innovative teaching/learning scenarios. To ensure learning success in innovative teaching/learning scenarios, learners need to faithfully apply learning management systems (LMS). However, we lack theoretical insights into which factors affect whether they do so. To help solve this issue, we first used adaptive structuration theory to identify antecedents and consequences regarding faithful LMS appropriation and embed them into a theoretical ...
Same Same But Different? A Two-Foci Perspective on Trust in Information Systems
Trust is one of the most important factors driving the adoption and use of information systems. The goal of this paper is to provide a first evaluation of a conceptual piece claiming a) that users distinguish between their trust in an IS and the provider of this IS and b) that both kinds of trust are important for the success sustainable success of IS providers. To evaluate the claims, a research model is developed and evaluated using data of 234 students during the introduction of a new IS at an European university. ...
Classifying Smart Personal Assistants: An Empirical Cluster Analysis
(University of Hawaii at Manoa, Hamilton Library, ScholarSpace, 2019)
The digital age has yielded systems that increasingly reduce the complexity of our everyday lives. As such, smart personal assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri combine the comfort of intuitive natural language interaction with the utility of personalized and situation-dependent information and service provision. However, research on SPAs is becoming increasingly complex and opaque. To reduce complexity, this paper introduces a classification system for SPAs. Based on a systematic literature review, a ...
Towards Empowering Educators to Create their own Smart Personal Assistants
Despite a growing body of research about the design and use of Smart Personal Assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa or Google’s Assistant, little is known about their ability to help educators offering individual support in large-scale learning environments. Smart Personal Assistant ecosystems empower educators to develop their own agents without deep technological knowledge. The objective of this paper is to design and validate a method that helps educators to create Smart Personal Assistants as learning tutors. Using ...
Process is King: Evaluating the Performance of Technology-mediated Learning in Vocational Software Training
Technology-mediated learning (TML) is a major trend in education, since it allows to integrate the strengths of traditional- and IT-based learning activities. However, TML providers still struggle in identifying areas for improvement in their TML offerings. One reason for their struggles is inconsistencies in the literature regarding drivers of TML performance. Prior research suggests that these inconsistencies in TML literature might stem from neglecting the importance of considering the process perspective in ...
Unlocking Transfer Learning in Argumentation Mining: A Domain-Independent Modelling Approach
(GITO Verlag, 2020)
Argument identification is the fundamental block of every Argumentation Mining pipeline, which in turn is a young upcoming field with multiple applications ranging from strategy support to opinion mining and news fact-checking. We developed a model, which is tackling the two biggest practical and academic challenges of the research field today. First, it addresses the lack of corpus-agnostic models and, second, it tackles the problem of human-labor-intensive NLP models being costly to develop. We do that by suggesting ...
