In our previous research, we have identified important constructs for a University-Industry Collaborative IT support system. Now we need to test the user acceptance of such a system before implementing it. Planned to use TAM integrated with DIT but the doubt is whether these two theories are applicable for a system that is not in use. My plan is to explain the system features in a prototype system and distribute them with the questionnaire. Could you please advise if you have experience with other IS theories that are more suitable for the scenario?.
For over a decade, the Cornell University, INSEAD, and WIPO, has been publishing Global Innovation Index (GII) Report consisting of a ranking system of world economies’ innovation capabilities and results. Furthermore, these ranking provides the scores based on a set of indicators analysed on national level. It has become a basis and reference for several studies and policy frameworks at national level for developed and developing countries. However, I am looking forward for the studies and projects done at metropolitan level in perspective of Global Innovation Index or studies which examines the indicators of GII at smaller level rather than national level.
I would be grateful for any suggestions/ideas ,
i have been working on a research for Development of education system at basic level which builds a strong education attitude with innovation and help me develop a new scale to measure the strength of education system core components .
We are working on capacity building for scaling up of evidence-based best practices on feeds and nutrition in the tropics targeting smallholder farmers who practice crop-livestock mixed farming system. I wonder if someone has proven best practices on the theme which we can adapt.
Usually innovation potential is valued with respect to a firm or company (their practices, culture, methods, personnel, etc.), but can we also assess it for a specific software product. This is as close as I have gotten: Collins, R., Hevner, A., & Linger, R. (2011). Evaluating a disruptive innovation: Function extraction technology in software development. Proceedings of the Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.
In order to tackle complex challenges we need collaboration across sectors (between state and society) as well as between ministries and administrative levels (e.g. often innovative initiatives are local, but the federal level has littles possibilities to empower their creativity and learn from them). Often gov.labs impact just one ministry or administrative level, and has no mandate to transform the political system as such. Do you know of any successful gov.lab in this regard?
Thanks and best wishes, Patrizia Nanz
Will artificial intelligence combined with the analysis of data collected in Big Data database systems be used in automated forecasting of valuations of securities and other assets on capital markets?
In the background of the plot of the film "Transcendence" from 2014, directed by Wally Pfister, the topic of analysis is analyzed by a computerized system combining artificial intelligence with human consciousness loaded into a computerized system of artificial intelligence connected to Internet resources and using the resources on its own.
This independence also means access to various databases, including internal Big Data database databases belonging to certain corporations, including listed companies that are issuers of securities.
The artificial intelligence connected to the Internet, according to a specific strategy, also independently conducts transactions on the market of valuable securities.
In addition, it establishes statrtsets offering innovative technologies, which in a short time become large capital companies characterized by a high capitalization of exchange quotations of shares of these companies listed on stock exchanges.
The above-presented film "Transcendence" presented above picture of integration of artificial intelligence, human consciousness and Internet resources is a picture of typical science fiction.
However, on the other hand, the function of this image is also to inspire to discuss the potential possibilities of integration of the above-mentioned elements into one system of autonomous and working in the Internet resources artificial intelligence, in addition also containing some human feelings.
The above image from the movie "Transcendence" became an inspiration to formulate the following question below.
The mentioned motif from the movie "Transcendence" looks impressive and convincing in this film mainly because it has a full spectrum of innovation.
The use of new, innovative instruments for forecasting specific economic categories usually works until these innovative instruments continue to be innovative, ie until they are disseminated to the majority of participants in specific markets.
In view of the above, I am asking you to answer the following question: Will artificial intelligence combined with the analysis of data collected in the Big Data database systems be used in automated forecasting of valuations of securities and other assets on capital markets?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
Currently, higher education plays an important role in developing entrepreneurship among students. However, there are various didactic methods, thanks to which the entrepreneurship among students is stimulated and improved. What didactic methods are used to stimulate and develop entrepreneurship among students is conditioned by many factors related to the type, organization and functioning of a specific university, prevailing in the country standards of the teaching and higher education system,
Hi everyone! I’m studying on reinforcing polypropylene base by the means of flax fibers in order to increase the strength and elastic modulus mainly used as automobile’s interior components. Based on extensive researches conducted in the field of natural reinforced polymer composites, the majority of the composite preparation procedures i.e. overcoming the water absorption problem, surface modification of lingocellulosic fibers, increasing interfacial bonding,etc. are mostly studied. At the moment, I’m seeking an innovation such as adding a third component to the system like rubber particles or any other innovation that can fulfill upcoming issues in the field of biocomposites. Is there any idea that you can share with me?
In some countries there are no doctoral exams, the student is asked to demonstrate the evolution of his research during his course of study. I wonder if in other study system if there is a written examination to be performed after each course or doctoral seminar.
