Lunchtime Seminar - Introduction to the Industrial Data Space from an Information Modeling Perspective.

Dienstag, 29. Mai 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

The Industrial Data Space [1] initiative aims at establishing a „network of trust“ for a secure and reliable exchange of digital resources between business partners in dynamic value-creation scenarios. Regardless of the domain, the Data Space architecture [2] addresses issues related to the publication, search, negotiation, delivery, and the subsequent usage of data and reusable data processing applications in accordance with licensing terms of the sovereign resource provider. Catalog services link the offerings and requests of Data Space participants by means of a structured resource description (meta-data). Some description aspects are already covered by standard vocabularies (e.g. DCAT [3], PROV-O [4] and ODRL [5]) while domain-specific extensions and an overall integrated governance process had to be established. The talk introduces the goals of the Industrial Data Space, the main architecture components and the approach followed in modeling of the central Data Space assets, data and data processing applications.

Lunchtime Seminar - Phronesis, Argumentation and Puzzle Solving in IS Research: Illustrating an Approach to Phronetic IS Research Practice

Dienstag, 8. Mai 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leonardo-Campus 18

The embedding of information systems (IS) infrastructure into everyday social activity is creating intractable value conflicts for society. However, IS research largely focuses on: (1) episteme, explanatory and predictive theories; and (2) techné, theories of action for implementation and management of IS technologies. Consequently, we lack applicable knowledge for deliberating about IS value conflicts. The third type of knowledge, phronesis, which Aristotle proposed to inform ethical application of episteme and techné, has not been given much attention in our discipline. Presently, we are experiencing a critical limitation in our capabilities for generating ethically applicable IS knowledge in the face of increasing value conflicts arising from pervasive digitalisation. In this paper, we introduce phronesis, discuss its philosophical foundations and illustrate an approach to phronetic enquiry into the underlying value conflicts of a failed national IS infrastructure project. Our aim is to strengthen and expand IS research methods for systematic critical enquiry into social-values dilemmas resulting from continued embedding of IS technologies into our social world.

Lunchtime Seminar - The Role of Information Systems in Shaping the Dynamics of Organizational Attention: Reflections and Empirical Evidence

Dienstag, 17. April 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leo 18, Leonardo-Campus 3, 48149 Münster

William Ocasio defines organizational attention as the “noticing, encoding, interpreting, and focusing of time and effort by organizational decision makers on issues and answers” (p. 189). Attention is a scarce and critical resource that is distributed in the organization to foster the focus on a diverse set of issues and action alternatives. Organizational strategy acts as a guide to the distribution of the attention effort in the organization, coherent interconnection between pockets of shared attention and development of collective capacity to respond coherently to internal and external stimuli. Changes in the organizational strategy often arise as result of changes in the external environment or when the usual problem solving logic is no longer effective.
Readiness for strategic change requires that attention structures and communication channels are flexible and adaptable to the new needs of collective attention. According to (William Ocasio et al., 2018) there’s “a rather limited understanding of communicative practices in various communication channels and particularly the extent to which they reinforce existing patterns of organizational attention or facilitate the formulation and implementation of strategic change” (p. 159). The talk addresses research carried out with the objective of providing empirical evidence for the role that communicative practices play in facilitating the formulation and implementation of strategic change, with a particular focus on communicative practices supported or enabled by information systems.

Lunchtime Seminar - Deep Recommendation based on Collective Knowledge

Dienstag, 10. April 2018 - 12:00 bis 13:00, Leo 18, Leonardo-Campus 3, 48149 Münster

Nowadays, we have a huge amount of information overload over Internet. To extract useful information, filtering is required. Search engines help to solve this problem to some extent but they do not deliver customized (personalized) information. Hence, there is a need for effective recommendation tools. This line of investigation leads to our central specific question for the present project. We rephrase Turing’s dictum in the following question. Can recommendation systems think? Answers to this question will have strong implications for the more general issue of whether and how far modern systems mirror our thinking. This observation has motivated us to investigate whether the collective knowledge of the community as a whole could be used to help computer systems extend their intelligent abilities.

Our common project focuses on various learning methods used in generating recommendation models and evaluation metrics used in measuring the quality and performance of recommendation algorithms. This knowledge will empower researchers from both universities and serve as a road map to improve the state of the art recommendation techniques. A combination of different complimentary methods is likely to give a more robust performance to the systems.
