  1. Semantic Web Constraint Language and Its Application to an Intelligent Shopping Agent
    Publication year: 2008
    Source: Decision Support Systems, In Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available online 25 December 2008
    Hak-Jin, Kim , Wooju, Kim , Myungjin, Lee

    Semantic Web society was initially focused only on data, but then gradually moved toward knowledge. If a vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance humans' decision-making assisted by machines, a missing but important part is knowledge about constraints on data and concepts represented by ontology. This paper proposes a Semantic Web Constraint Language (SWCL) based on OWL, and shows its effectiveness in representing and solving an internet shopper's decision-making problems by implementing a shopping agent in the Semantic Web environment.
  2. Software Project Effort Estimation with Voting Rules
    Publication year: 2008
    Source: Decision Support Systems, In Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available online 24 December 2008
    Stefan, Koch , Johann, Mitlöhner

    Abstract: Social choice deals with aggregating the preferences of a number of voters into a collective preference. We will use this idea for software project effort estimation, substituting the voters by project attributes. Therefore, instead of supplying numeric values for various project attributes that are then used in regression or similar methods, a new project only needs to be placed into one ranking per attribute, necessitating only ordinal values. Using the resulting aggregate ranking the new project is a gain placed between other projects whose actual expended effort can be used to derive an estimation. In this paper we will present...

  4. Avatar e-mail versus traditional e-mail: Perceptual difference and media selection difference
    Publication year: 2009
    Source: Decision Support Systems, Volume 46, Issue 2, January 2009, Pages 451-467
    Younghwa, Lee , Kenneth A., Kozar , Kai R., Larsen

    The study investigates how knowledge workers perceive avatar e-mail differently from traditional e-mail, and how they select traditional versus avatar e-mail when different levels of task equivocality and different types of communication direction are present. Three field studies were conducted with knowledge workers who have used avatar and traditional e-mail. This study demonstrates that overall perception toward avatar e-mail is significantly different from traditional e-mail with respect to media richness and social presence characteristics. In addition, this study found individuals used different e-mail selection approaches when conducting tasks with different equivocality (high versus low equivocal tasks) and tasks for different...
  5. Understanding Risk-taking Behavior of Groups: A "Decision Analysis" Perspective
    Publication year: 2008
    Source: Decision Support Systems, In Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available online 24 December 2008
    Joseph S., Valacich , Saonee, Sarker , Jamie, Pratt , Mike, Groomer

    Past research has extensively investigated the effect of media, especially focusing on how anonymity increases risk-related behaviors of groups when using computer-mediated communication (CMC). This study extends prior research by examining the differences in group risk-taking behaviors between face-to-face groups and completely non-anonymous CMC groups (i.e., groups working in a fully identified, synchronous CMC environment similar to popular instant messaging systems utilized widely within organizations). Drawing on the "decision analysis" perspective, a key framework for understanding organizational decision-making, the study also examines the effects of the firm's risk preferences as well as the type of information distribution amongst group members...
