Lunchtime Seminar - Machine Understanding for Enterprise Applications

Dienstag, 8. Januar 2019 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

In his talk Prof. Löser will briefly review main drivers for the platform economy and will sketch important implications for the German economy. Later, he will introduce their work on neural text mining for enterprise applications. In particular, he will focus on tasks such as in-database text mining, sentence classification, entity linkage, Hate-speech detection and neural paragraph retrieval. Finally, Prof. Löser will outline latest trends and his ‘bets’ in the area of neural text mining.

DIGITALE ÖKOSYSTEME IM BANKING – DER AUFBRUCH IN DIE ZUKUNFT?

Donnerstag, 13. Dezember 2018 - 18:00, zeb-Office Münster, Hammer Straße 165, 48153 Münster

Im Wettkampf um Kunden versuchen sich die europäischen Banken zu übertreffen

und umgeben sich mit den kreativsten Köpfen, um Methoden zu entwickeln,

Kunden anzulocken und dauerhaft an sich zu binden. Doch was geschieht, wenn

diese – auf die eigenen Produkte und das eigene Institut konzentierte – Strategie

der falsche Weg ist?

Denn gerade in Zeiten des raschen Wandels wollen Kunden eine positive User Experience

erleben und suchen vor allem nach der „Alles aus einer Hand“-Lösung. Mit

Lunchtime Seminar - Webcam Covering as Planned Behavior

Dienstag, 4. Dezember 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

Most of today’s laptops come with an integrated webcam placed above the screen to enable video conferencing. Due to the risk of webcam spying attacks, some laptop users seem to be concerned about their privacy and seek protection by covering the webcam. We are the first to investigate personal characteristics and beliefs of users with and without webcam covers by applying the Theory of Planned Behavior. We record the privacy behavior of 180 users, develop a path model, and analyze it by applying Partial Least Squares. The analysis indicates that privacy concerns do not significantly influence users’ decision to use a webcam cover. Rather, this behavior is influenced by users’ attitudes, social environment, and perceived control over protecting privacy. Developers should take this as a lesson to design privacy enhancing technologies which are intuitive, usable and easy to understand.

Lunchtime Seminar - Thinking about public policy - hard choices and soft advice

Dienstag, 27. November 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

This seminar will look at the ways in which economists and others  contribute to public policy debates. How public policy debates are formed, influenced and evaluated.  The seminar will focus on the high technology sector (success as Telecommunications and platforms - although some other issue such as natural capital will be discussed).
One of the issues that will permeate the discussion is the nature of benefits, how these are created (e.g. through innovation) , how these benefits are held and distributed and how the effects of policy play out over time, and how benefits in one area may well create losses in other areas (an example here might be trade).

Lunchtime Seminar - Virtual relationships as patterns of intercorporeal engagements

Dienstag, 20. November 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18
Abstract:   Technological advances and increased pervasiveness of ICTs have afforded the emergence of distributed and virtual forms of organizing and collaborating. It has been suggested that research on virtual interactions is still missing appropriate understanding of the processes of developing intersubjective relations and social bonding in virtual context. Research in the area has been dominated by polar stances. On one hand, there have been claims for the superiority of the face-to-face interactions for developing rich social relationships, deemed as the ‘gold standard’ and ‘richest’ medium, which cannot be replicated in virtual settings. On the other hand, other authors have argued that physical presence is not important, and have advocated a vision of virtual disembodiment that is premised on the idea that digital text can successfully replace face-to-face interactions. Central to these arguments is how bodily presence is theorized and what is its role in developing and maintaining intersubjective relationships. This work offers theoretical advances in this area by reconceptualizing the relationship between intersubjectivity, human body and technology. These insights are developed and illustrated in relation to an in-depth, exploratory case study of an exclusively-mediated, virtual relationship between two companies.

Lunchtime Seminar - Evolutionary Computing for Problems with Dynamically Changing Constraints

Dienstag, 13. November 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

Dynamic problems appear frequently in real-world applications such as logistics for mining and are usually subject to a large set of constraints. These constraints change over time due to changes in resources and having algorithms that can deal with such dynamic changes delivers direct benefit to decision makers. Evolutionary algorithms are well suited for such dynamic problems as they can easily adapt to changing environments. In this talk, I will report on some theoretical and experimental investigations that we have carried out in the area of evolutionary algorithms for problems with dynamic constraints. The focus will be the classical knapsack problem where the given constraint bound changes over time.

Lunchtime Seminar - How many is too many? Effects of Multiple Team Membership on Performance and Creativity

Dienstag, 30. Oktober 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

In today’s hyper-competitive and dynamic environment, organizations are called on to deliver faster and higher quality products than ever before. In response to this trend, employees are often concurrently working on multiple project teams that may be comprised of geographically dispersed team members. This work arrangement, which we refer to as Multiple Team Membership (MTM), has advantages in that employees can leverage knowledge across projects and use gaps in time and tasks in one project to accomplish tasks related to other projects. Despite these advantages, use of MTM poses several challenges. In particular, working across different projects and teams with varying cognitive demands beyond a certain point can take a toll on an individual’s ability to focus, solve problems, and be creative. For example, individuals may have less time to exploit and explore information available from different teams, reducing their chances of learning from the different teams on which they work.

The goal of this research is to examine the effect of working across concurrent projects on individual performance and creativity.  Specifically, we ask – at what point do the benefits of MTM cease to become beneficial and begin to hinder employee performance and creativity? Further, we examine how MTM affects individual project knowledge, variety of sources utilized to arrive at a solution, and workload. The research findings are expected to help organizations where individuals work in multiple teams manage such teams to produce better outcomes.
