Introduction
I am currently working on design knowledge for future-oriented AI applications. Especially a design theory for virtual companionship and user-centered design approaches for conversational agent design. On https://design-science-research.de/ I share my knowledge and experience about the Design Science Research methodology.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Design science research (DSR) has established itself as an integral and continuously evolving part of information systems research. Aspects that recently became apparent are what design knowledge is and how it should be communicated to achieve a high impact. However, the question remains, whether DSR contributions find their way into practice. In t...

Many people globally experience the feeling of loneliness and struggle with its consequences. A modern way to deal with this loneliness and lack of companionship is to use empathetic and emotional conversational agents. Often referred to as virtual companions, these agents can engage in human-like conversations with their users and build relationsh...

This article shows how the creative performance of start-ups or established organizations can be improved through the use of AI-based systems for actively promoting creative processes. With insights from two studies conducted with entrepreneurs, innovation managers and workshop facilitators, we provide recommendations for companies and entrepreneur...
Chapter
Continuous increase in computing power and more available data contribute to AI maturing, enabling an efficient and powerful human-AI collaboration. As a result, the nature of work will change and more and more AI will be involved in joint work. In this study we introduce the so-called virtual collaborator, an equal partner in digital collaboration...
Chapter
In our research we introduce the concept of the virtual companion and show its advantages for the service sector. The virtual companion is a new form of artificial intelligence application enabling a collaborative scenario between humans and information technology and thus makes more personalized services possible. In order to design virtual compan...

More and more people use virtual assistants in their everyday life (e.g., on their mobile phones, in their homes, or in their cars). So-called vehicle assistance systems have evolved over the years and now perform various proactive tasks. However, we still lack concrete guidelines with all the specifics that one needs to consider to build virtual a...

Zusammenfassung In Rahmen dieses Beitrags sollen moderne Informationssysteme wie virtuelle Assistenten auf deren Unterstützungspotentiale im stationären Einzelhandel hin untersucht werden. Dabei wird ein besonderes Augenmerk auf die Kooperationsfähigkeit dieser Systeme gelegt. Eine gute Kooperation zwischen Informationssystem und Händler soll insbe...
Article
The interdisciplinary research endeavor of computer-supported collaborative work has already investigated information technology that supports collaboration. With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), new forms of collaboration need to be considered that involve AI as an active partner within a collaborative setting. Theories and design guideli...
Conference Paper

To remain competitive, businesses need to develop innovative and profitable products, processes and services. The development of innovation relies on novel ideas, which can be generated during creative workshops. In this context the Design Thinking approach, a problem-solving methodology based on collaboration, user-centricity and creativity, may b...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In order to generate valuable innovations, it is important to come up with potential beneficial ideas. A well-known method for collective idea generation is Brainstorming and with Electronic Brainstorming, individuals can virtually brainstorm. However, an effective Brainstorming facilitation always needs a moderator. In our research, we designed an...

Project
In an increasingly digitalized and flexible world, lifelong learning tailored to one's own needs is becoming more and more important for professional success. The funded project StudyBuddy is a collaborative project with the main goal of designing a virtual learning companion to support learners. The aim is to identify and eliminate gaps in knowledge and understanding at an early stage and to tailor knowledge transfer to the individual learner. In the long term, this should increase learning success and reduce the dropout rate in professional development programs. For more information, go to: https://study-buddy-research.de/
