During lecture time, we have our Lunchtime Seminar each Tuesday from 12.15-12.45. During this seminars, researchers of the Department or invited guest provide us with insights into their research.

Datesort descending Title Abstract
13.04.2021 The New Logic of Design: Autonomous Design Tools and Video Game Production

In this lunchtime talk, Stefan Seidel speaks about a stream of research that investigates how autonomous design tools shape the nature of design work. These tools generate outcomes with little or no user intervention and produce designs of unprecedented complexity and originality. They fundamentally revamp how organizations will design and innovate in future. Stefan will highlight (1) the relevance of this emergent phenomenon, (2) conceptual lenses to study this phenomenon, and (3) some... more

20.04.2021 The inevitability of misclassification in media recommender systems

The abundance of user generated or user submitted media content on modern social media platforms makes algorithmic curation of content more or less inevitable. The precise principles governing the recommender systems are usually opaque, but the goals behind the optimiziation process are transparent: Factors like engagement, dwell time or watch time are optimized for because these measures translate into monetizable usage time, thus directly affecting the financial bottom line of said... more

27.04.2021 Business Model Design in Process Industries: Recent Trends and Future Research

In this lunchtime seminar, Stephan speaks about his recent research on business models and discuss how digital technologies fundamentally change how firms in process industries, such as chemicals and pharmaceuticals, create, deliver, and capture value in concert with transaction partners.

04.05.2021 Information Warfare in the Financial Domain: Problems and a few Solutions

Disinformation and manipulation campaigns are frequently carried out on social media with the aim to mislead and to influence online crowds. In order to be successful, each campaign must spread to and “infect” a large number of users. This often mandates large coordinated efforts, as well as the use of bot and troll armies, for the campaign to obtain significant outreach, to exert influence, and to have an impact.

11.05.2021 Disinformation from the regulator’s perspective: The role of algorithms

Disinformation is changing its face. The foreign and artificial element gets more concealed, and with the involvement of domestic authors, contributors and amplifiers, the manipulative content gradually takes root within the national public discourse of the receiving state. Often, the content is not even factually false, but primarily polarising and manipulative in nature. Often the manipulative or false content is spread by persons of political authority whose right to freedom of expression... more

18.05.2021 Artificial Intelligence for a Better Future – An Ecosystem Perspective on the Ethics of AI and Emerging Digital Technologies

Smart information systems (SIS), those systems that incorporate artificial intelligence techniques, in particular machine learning and big data analytics, are widely expected to have a significant impact on our world. They raise significant hopes, for example to better understand and cure diseases, to revolutionize transport, to optimize business processes or reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, they raise many ethical and social concerns, ranging from worries about biases and... more

01.06.2021 RISE_SMA - Social Media Analytics for Society and Crisis Communication

In this talk, Stefan shares insights about the EU project "RISE_SMA - Social Media Analytics for Society and Crisis Communication". The project involves ERCIS partners from Germany, The Netherlands, Norway and Australia.

08.06.2021 Digital Risk Society

The rise of the digital society is accompanied by incalculable social risks, but very little IS research has examined the implications of the new digital society. Drawing on concepts from Beck’s critical theory of the risk society and critical discourse analysis, this study examines the public discourse on risk events during the launch of NemID, a personal digital identifier for Danish citizens.

15.06.2021 Science Communication in Digital Information Environments

The talk provides an overview of current trends and research fields in science communication research and how science communication has changed in digital media environments. It will deal with the benefits for and challenges of science communication online and will outline the frameworks for analysis.

22.06.2021 Complexity-based Selection of Production Planning and Control Architectures

While research discussing and determining the need for autonomy in production systems exists, no publications focus on the architectural perspective so far. Heterarchical production planning and control architectures are only needed, when hierarchical architectures have troubles handling the underlying system complexity. Here, literature however does not depict the interactions between a growing system complexity and the computational complexity of the related... more
