After the frenzy that surrounded the election has cooled down a little and before the new semester really starts let’s take the time to remember some aspects about the past semester. For example the practical project that developed a personal assistant with the help of IBMs Watson. We posted about their final presentation a while ago and now there is a wonderful video that revives the facts with some motions. Enjoy.

While this years summer semester has come to an end the same can’t be said about our research (it just never stops…). Anna, Lea, Tobias and Björn from our chair took the opportunity to visit Norway for our DAAD-founded project on crisis situations caused by humans and the development of methods that can be used in such situations. The discussions with our partners at the University of Agder in Kristiansand led to some promising new ideas on which we of course will keep you updated. And as a visit in Norway is never complete without seeing at least one fjord the four visited the Preikestolen - a steep cliff right next to a fjord. Attached are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

As this Semester comes to an end, the semi-annual final presentations take place. This week saw the final presentation of a practical project which was conducted in cooperation with IBM. The company granted the students access to its Watson-Project which the students used to program a chatbot that can detect and administrate tasks in a group chat. Pretty impressive for a semesters work. On the pictures you can see the group and its advisors One could almost say they look a little flabbergasted (what a great word).

After our chair went to Australia at the beginning of this year now it’s the turn for Australia to come to our chair. So this week Christian Ehnis and Dr Abdul Babar from the University of Sydney Business School and the University of Technology, Sydney respectively paid us a visit. Together with Milad and in the course of a DAAD-project they are evaluating the trustworthiness of the source of User-Generated Content during extreme-events.

If you currently happen to be in Portugal, make sure to stop by at Guimarães to say hello to a part of our chair. This week the 25th ECIS - Europes most important conference on Information Systems is taking place there and we are on-site with some papers. And as if this was not enough already, the paper on crisis communication by Milad and Elisa (our former student assistant) has been nominated for the best paper award as one of three papers. We’ll see how that goes when the winner is announced on Friday evening, but until then we’ll keep our fingers crossed and just enjoy the scene.

This week saw the 14th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, this time in Albi, located in Southern France. As it is exactly Milads realm of research (Crisis Response and Management, not Southern France) he presented a poster on the role of bystanders in Social Media Crisis Communication. And as he looks so happy we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

This week Googles own Chief Innovation Evangelist (yes, thats a thing) Dr. Frederik G. Pferdt visited our University to talk about innovation and the potential of the Ruhr area. In the course of this he held a presentation and hosted two workshops which we attended. It’s always interesting to see how people working in the midst of one of the leading tech companies in the silicon valley handle such things and get a glimpse at their view on certain topics. To proof this really happened, here’s a picture from the presentation.

Looks like the USAs Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is pretty on-line (pun intended) with development in the social media. According to its guidelines, „social media users must disclose when there is some kind of relationship, often monetary, between the endorsement-maker and an advertiser“. Following this rule the FTC just issued letters to Instagram users who may have published sponsored posts without marking them as such. It’s rather rare to see government agencies who keep track so fast with current developments online. More on that topic at The Verge.

If you haven’t made any plans for the next few years (and even if you have) we got a great idea what to do with your time: You could join our team as a research associate. That’d mean conducting relevant research, teaching students, traveling the world and oh, did we mention the free coffee? If this sounds as desirable to you as it does to us, head over to our website for further details and apply until April 30th.: https://www.uni-due.de/proco/

As soon as we were back from our DAAD-Adventures in Australia we got right into the next one. This time with the worlds happiest people from Norway. As you can see in the pictures their happiness carried over and we had a very productive project kick-off - this time in Duisburg.
