The research group Information Systems | Software & Digital Business examines the impact of digitalisation on the economy and society. The specific focus of our research is to determine to what extent the use of innovative digital technologies leads to changes in companies.
Our research can be categorized into the following topics and research priorities within information systems:
We analyse how machine learning algorithms are used in companies. Our research not only focuses on the increasing economic importance of artificial intelligence, but also examines ethical issues.
This topic covers the development of new digital business models. One focus is the analysis of the potential of data-based business models. Our research group also supports the establishment of digital start-ups.
This is essentially about the tension between data usage and the protection of privacy. We analyse how companies can benefit from data without violating the privacy of the individual. Also, we look at how data can be used to optimise value creation processes.
- Value of data for business and society
The range of courses in the research group is based on the focus areas described. In addition to modules on the basics of information systems, we offer lectures such as “Artificial Intelligence 1 + 2”, “Software & Internet Economics”, and “IT Project Management”.
In the research group we work empirically, while at the same time developing prototypical solutions, for example in the area of deep learning. Our bachelor and master students can expect an interesting mix of scientific and practical teaching in the field of “Software & Digital Business”.
Further details on courses and seminars can be found on the research group's webpage.
