Towards Automated Moderation: Enabling Toxic Language Detection with Transfer Learning and Attention-Based Models

M. Caron, F.S. Bäumer, O. Müller, in: 55th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 2022), 2022

Our world is more connected than ever before. Sadly, however, this highly connected world has made it easier to bully, insult, and propagate hate speech on the cyberspace. Even though researchers and companies alike have started investigating this real-world problem, the question remains as to why users are increasingly being exposed to hate and discrimination online. In fact, the noticeable and persistent increase in harmful language on social media platforms indicates that the situation is, actually, only getting worse. Hence, in this work, we show that contemporary ML methods can help tackle this challenge in an accurate and cost-effective manner. Our experiments demonstrate that a universal approach combining transfer learning methods and state-of-the-art Transformer architectures can trigger the efficient development of toxic language detection models. Consequently, with this universal approach, we provide platform providers with a simplistic approach capable of enabling the automated moderation of user-generated content, and as a result, hope to contribute to making the web a safer place.

Using Geolocated Text to Quantify Location in Real Estate Appraisal

T. Heuwinkel, J. Kucklick, O. Müller, in: 55th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-55), 2022

Accurate real estate appraisal is essential in decision making processes of financial institutions, governments, and trending real estate platforms like Zillow. One of the most important factors of a property’s value is its location. However, creating accurate quantifications of location remains a challenge. While traditional approaches rely on Geographical Information Systems (GIS), recently unstructured data in form of images was incorporated in the appraisal process, but text data remains an untapped reservoir. Our study shows that using text data in form of geolocated Wikipedia articles can increase predictive performance over traditional GIS-based methods by 8.2% in spatial out-of-sample validation. A framework to automatically extract geographically weighted vector representations for text is established and used alongside traditional structural housing features to make predictions and to uncover local patterns on sale price for real estate transactions between 2015 and 2020 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

Visual Interpretability of Image-based Real Estate Appraisal

J. Kucklick, in: 55th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-55), 2022

Explainability for machine learning gets more and more important in high-stakes decisions like real estate appraisal. While traditional hedonic house pricing models are fed with hard information based on housing attributes, recently also soft information has been incorporated to increase the predictive performance. This soft information can be extracted from image data by complex models like Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). However, these are intransparent which excludes their use for high-stakes financial decisions. To overcome this limitation, we examine if a two-stage modeling approach can provide explainability. We combine visual interpretability by Regression Activation Maps (RAM) for the CNN and a linear regression for the overall prediction. Our experiments are based on 62.000 family homes in Philadelphia and the results indicate that the CNN learns aspects related to vegetation and quality aspects of the house from exterior images, improving the predictive accuracy of real estate appraisal by up to 5.4%.

Anthropogenic climate change: the impact of the global carbon budget

M. Redlin, T. Gries, Theoretical and Applied Climatology (2021)

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>Using time series data for the period 1959–2015, our empirical analysis examines the simultaneous effects of the individual components of the global carbon budget on temperature. Specifically, we explore the possible effects of carbon emissions caused by fossil fuel combustion, cement production, land-use change emissions, and carbon sinks (here in terms of land sink and ocean sink) on climate change. The simultaneous inclusion of carbon emissions and carbon sinks allows us to look at the coexistent and opposing effects of the individual components of the carbon budget and thus provides a holistic perspective from which to explore the relationship between the global carbon budget and global warming. The results reveal a significant positive effect of carbon emissions on temperature for both fossil fuels emissions and emissions from land-use change, confirming previous results concerning carbon dioxide and temperature. Further, while ocean sink does not seem to have a significant effect, we identify a temperature-decreasing effect for land sink.</jats:p>

Artificial intelligence in disease diagnostics: A critical review and classification on the current state of research guiding future direction

M. Mirbabaie, S. Stieglitz, N.R.J. Frick, Health and Technology (2021), pp. 693-731

The diagnosis of diseases is decisive for planning proper treatment and ensuring the well-being of patients. Human error hinders accurate diagnostics, as interpreting medical information is a complex and cognitively challenging task. The application of artificial intelligence (AI) can improve the level of diagnostic accuracy and efficiency. While the current literature has examined various approaches to diagnosing various diseases, an overview of fields in which AI has been applied, including their performance aiming to identify emergent digitalized healthcare services, has not yet been adequately realized in extant research. By conducting a critical review, we portray the AI landscape in diagnostics and provide a snapshot to guide future research. This paper extends academia by proposing a research agenda. Practitioners understand the extent to which AI improves diagnostics and how healthcare benefits from it. However, several issues need to be addressed before successful application of AI in disease diagnostics can be achieved.</jats:p>

Artificial intelligence in hospitals: providing a status quo of ethical considerations in academia to guide future research

M. Mirbabaie, L. Hofeditz, N.R.J. Frick, S. Stieglitz, AI & SOCIETY (2021)

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>The application of artificial intelligence (AI) in hospitals yields many advantages but also confronts healthcare with ethical questions and challenges. While various disciplines have conducted specific research on the ethical considerations of AI in hospitals, the literature still requires a holistic overview. By conducting a systematic discourse approach highlighted by expert interviews with healthcare specialists, we identified the status quo of interdisciplinary research in academia on ethical considerations and dimensions of AI in hospitals. We found 15 fundamental manuscripts by constructing a citation network for the ethical discourse, and we extracted actionable principles and their relationships. We provide an agenda to guide academia, framed under the principles of biomedical ethics. We provide an understanding of the current ethical discourse of AI in clinical environments, identify where further research is pressingly needed, and discuss additional research questions that should be addressed. We also guide practitioners to acknowledge AI-related benefits in hospitals and to understand the related ethical concerns.</jats:p>

Attention triggers and investors' risk-taking

M. Arnold, M. Pelster, M.G. Subrahmanyam, Journal of Financial Economics (2021)

The paper investigates the impact of individual attention on investor risk-taking. We analyze a large sample of trading records from a brokerage service that allows its customers to trade contracts-for-differences (CFD), and sends standardized push messages on recent stock performance to its client investors. The advantage of this sample is that it allows us to isolate the "push" messages as individual attention triggers, which we can directly link to the same individuals' risk-taking. A particular advantage of CFD trading is that it allows investors to make use of leverage, which provides us a pure measure of investors' willingness to take risks that is independent of the decision to purchase a particular stock. Leverage is a major catalyst of speculative trading, as it increases the scope of extreme returns, and enables investors to take larger positions than what they can afford with their own capital. We show that investors execute attention-driven trades with higher leverage, compared to their other trades, as well as those of other investors who are not alerted by attention triggers.

Classifying the Ideational Impact of Information Systems Review Articles: A Content-Enriched Deep Learning Approach

J. Prester, G. Wagner, G. Schryen, N.R. Hassan, Decision Support Systems (2021), 140, pp. 113432

Ideational impact refers to the uptake of a paper's ideas and concepts by subsequent research. It is defined in stark contrast to total citation impact, a measure predominantly used in research evaluation that assumes that all citations are equal. Understanding ideational impact is critical for evaluating research impact and understanding how scientific disciplines build a cumulative tradition. Research has only recently developed automated citation classification techniques to distinguish between different types of citations and generally does not emphasize the conceptual content of the citations and its ideational impact. To address this problem, we develop Deep Content-enriched Ideational Impact Classification (Deep-CENIC) as the first automated approach for ideational impact classification to support researchers' literature search practices. We evaluate Deep-CENIC on 1,256 papers citing 24 information systems review articles from the IT business value domain. We show that Deep-CENIC significantly outperforms state-of-the-art benchmark models. We contribute to information systems research by operationalizing the concept of ideational impact, designing a recommender system for academic papers based on deep learning techniques, and empirically exploring the ideational impact of the IT business value domain.

COVID-19 reporting and willingness to pay for leisure activities

S. Warkulat, S. Krull, R. Ortmann, N. Klocke, M. Pelster, Covid Economics (2021)(83), pp. 183-205

The containment of COVID-19 critically hinges on individuals’ behavior. We investigate how individuals react to variations in COVID-19 reporting. Using a survey, we elicit individuals' perceived infection risk given various COVID-19 metrics (e.g., confirmed cases, reproduction rate, or case-fatality ratio). We proxy individuals' risk perception with their willingness to pay for the participation in everyday life and amusements events. We find that participants react to different COVID-19 metrics with varying sensitivity. We observe a saturation of sensitivity for several measures at critical limits used in the political discussion, making our results highly relevant for policy makers in their efforts to direct individuals to adhere to hygienic etiquette and social distancing guidelines.

Educational Assimilation of First-Generation and Second-Generation Immigrants in Germany

T. Gries, M. Redlin, M. Zehra, Journal of International Migration and Integration (2021)

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel for 1984–2018, we analyze the intergenerational education mobility of immigrants in Germany by identifying the determinants of differences in educational stocks for first- and second-generation immigrants in comparison to individuals without a migration background. Our results show that on average, first-generation immigrants have fewer years of schooling than native-born Germans and have a disproportionate share of lower educational qualifications. This gap is strongly driven by age at immigration, with immigration age and education revealing a nonlinear relationship. While the gap is relatively small among individuals who migrate at a young age, integrating in the school system at secondary school age leads to large disadvantages. Examining the educational mobility of immigrants in Germany, we identify an inter-generational catch-up in education. The gap in education between immigrants and natives is reduced for the second generation. Finally, we find that country of origin differences can account for much of the education gap. While immigrants with an ethnic background closer to the German language and culture show the best education outcomes, immigrants from Turkey, Italy, and other southern European countries and especially the group of war refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other MENA countries, have the lowest educational attainment.</jats:p>

Managerial personality traits and selective hedging

M. Pelster, A. Hofmann, N. Klocke, S. Warkulat, Journal of Business Ethics (2021)

We study the relationship between risk managers' dark triad personality traits (Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy) and their selective hedging activities. Using a primary survey of 412 professional risk managers, we find that managers with dark personality traits are more likely to engage in selective hedging than those without. This effect is particularly pronounced for older, male, and less experienced risk managers. The effect is also stronger in smaller firms, less centralized risk management departments, and family-owned firms.

PIVOT: A Parsimonious End-to-End Learning Framework for Valuing Player Actions in Handball using Tracking Data

O. Müller, M. Caron, M. Döring, T. Heuwinkel, J. Baumeister, in: 8th Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining for Sports Analytics (ECML PKDD 2021), 2021

Over the last years, several approaches for the data-driven estimation of expected possession value (EPV) in basketball and association football (soccer) have been proposed. In this paper, we develop and evaluate PIVOT: the first such framework for team handball. Accounting for the fast-paced, dynamic nature and relative data scarcity of hand- ball, we propose a parsimonious end-to-end deep learning architecture that relies solely on tracking data. This efficient approach is capable of predicting the probability that a team will score within the near future given the fine-grained spatio-temporal distribution of all players and the ball over the last seconds of the game. Our experiments indicate that PIVOT is able to produce accurate and calibrated probability estimates, even when trained on a relatively small dataset. We also showcase two interactive applications of PIVOT for valuing actual and counterfactual player decisions and actions in real-time.

Tax avoidance through securitization

A. Uhde, The Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance (2021), 79, pp. 411-421

Employing a unique hand-collected sample of 956 credit risk securitization transactions issued by 64 stock-listed European banks across the EU-13 plus Switzerland over the period from 1997 to 2010, this paper empirically analyzes the impact of securitization on the issuing banks’ effective tax rates. Our analysis reveals that banks may reduce their tax expense through securitization via a direct and indirect channel suggesting that tax avoidance may be a further motive for banks to engage in the securitization business. These baseline findings remain robust under various robustness checks, especially when implementing structural equation models and controlling for a reverse causality between the banks’ tax burden and their incentive to securitize. Finally, various sensitivity analyses provide further important results and implications for tax policies, banking regulation and the ongoing process of revitalizing the European securitization market.

To the Moon! Analyzing the Community of “Degenerates” Engaged in the Surge of the GME Stock

M. Caron, M. Gulenko, O. Müller, in: 42nd International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2021), 2021

In early 2021, the finance world was taken by storm by the dramatic price surge of the GameStop Corp. stock. This rise is being, at least in part, attributed to a group of Redditors belonging to the now-famous r/wallstreetbets (WSB) subreddit group. In this work, we set out to address if user activity on the WSB subreddit is associated with the trading volume of the GME stock. Leveraging a unique dataset containing more than 4.9 million WSB posts and comments, we assert that user activity is associated with the trading volume of the GameStop stock. We further show that posts have a significantly higher predictive power than comments and are especially helpful for predicting unusually high trading volume. Lastly, as recent events have shown, we believe that these findings have implications for retail and institutional investors, trading platforms, and policymakers, as these can have disruptive potential.

Towards a Decision Support System for Cross-Sectoral Energy Distribution Network Planning (to appear)

J. Kirchhoff, S.C. Burmeister, C. Weskamp, G. Engels, in: Tagungsband 16. Internationale Tagung Wirtschaftsinformatik (WI 2021), 2021

Requirements for energy distribution networks are changing fast due to the growing share of renewable energy, increasing electrification, and novel consumer and asset technologies. Since uncertainties about future developments increase planning difficulty, flexibility potentials such as synergies between the electricity, gas, heat, and transport sector often remain unused. In this paper, we therefore present a novel module-based concept for a decision support system that helps distribution network planners to identify cross-sectoral synergies and to select optimal network assets such as transformers, cables, pipes, energy storage systems or energy conversion technology. The concept enables long-term transformation plans and supports distribution network planners in designing reliable, sustainable and cost-efficient distribution networks for future demands.

Towards Visualizing and Simulating Business Models in Dynamic Platform Ecosystems

C. Vorbohle, S. Gottschalk, in: Proceedings of the 29th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), AIS, 2021

Platform-based business models underlie the success of many of today’s largest, fastest-growing, and most disruptive companies. Despite the success of prominent examples, such as Uber and Airbnb, creating a profitable platform ecosystem presents a key challenge for many companies across all industries. Although research provides knowledge about platforms’ different value drivers (e.g., network effects), companies that seek to transform their current business model into a platform-based one lack an artifact to reduce knowledge boundaries, collaborate effectively, and cope with the complexities and dynamics of platform ecosystems. We address this challenge by developing two artifacts and combining research from variability modeling, business model dependencies, and system dynamics. This paper presents a design science research approach to develop the platform ecosystem modeling language and the platform ecosystem development tool that support researcher and practitioner by visualizing and simulating platform ecosystems.

Two-period duopolies with forward markets

C. Cox, A. Karam, M. Pelster, Review of Industrial Organization (2021)

We experimentally consider a dynamic multi-period Cournot duopoly with a simultaneous option to manage financial risk and a real option to delay supply. The first option allows players to manage risk before uncertainty is realized, while the second allows managing risk after realization. In our setting, firms face a strategic dilemma: They must weigh the advantages of dealing with risk exposure against the disadvantages of higher competition. In theory, firms make strategic use of the hedging component, enhancing competition. Our experimental results support this theory, suggesting that hedging increases competition and negates duopoly profits even in a simultaneous setting.

Understanding Collaboration with Virtual Assistants – The Role of Social Identity and the Extended Self

M. Mirbabaie, S. Stieglitz, F. Brünker, L. Hofeditz, B. Ross, N.R.J. Frick, Business & Information Systems Engineering (2021), pp. 21-37

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>Organizations introduce virtual assistants (VAs) to support employees with work-related tasks. VAs can increase the success of teamwork and thus become an integral part of the daily work life. However, the effect of VAs on virtual teams remains unclear. While social identity theory describes the identification of employees with team members and the continued existence of a group identity, the concept of the extended self refers to the incorporation of possessions into one’s sense of self. This raises the question of which approach applies to VAs as teammates. The article extends the IS literature by examining the impact of VAs on individuals and teams and updates the knowledge on social identity and the extended self by deploying VAs in a collaborative setting. Using a laboratory experiment with N = 50, two groups were compared in solving a task, where one group was assisted by a VA, while the other was supported by a person. Results highlight that employees who identify VAs as part of their extended self are more likely to identify with team members and vice versa. The two aspects are thus combined into the proposed construct of virtually extended identification explaining the relationships of collaboration with VAs. This study contributes to the understanding on the influence of the extended self and social identity on collaboration with VAs. Practitioners are able to assess how VAs improve collaboration and teamwork in mixed teams in organizations.</jats:p>

Which Factors Affect the Scientific Impact of Review Papers in IS Research? A Scientometric Study

G. Wagner, J. Prester, M. Roche, G. Schryen, A. Benlian, G. Paré, M. Templier, Information & Management (2021), pp. 103427

Review papers are essential for knowledge development in IS. While some are cited twice a day, others accumulate single digit citations over a decade. The magnitude of these differences prompts us to analyze what distinguishes those reviews that have proven to be integral to scientific progress from those that might be considered less impactful. Our results highlight differences between reviews aimed at describing, understanding, explaining, and theory testing. Beyond the control variables, they demonstrate the importance of methodological transparency and the development of research agendas. These insights inform all stakeholders involved in the development and publication of review papers.

Who participated in the GameStop frenzy? Evidence from brokerage accounts

T. Hasso, D. Müller, M. Pelster, S. Warkulat, Finance Research Letters (2021), 102140

In January 2021, the GameStop stock was the epicenter of the first case of predatory trading initiated by retail investors. We use brokerage accounts to study who participated in this GameStop frenzy and how they performed. We investigate the extent to which investors’ personal and trading characteristics differ from the general population of retail investors.
