The object of our research work is the analysis and design of the digitization of economy and society. We look at how innovative digital technologies and new leadership principles lead to change in companies. One of our current technological focus is the use of machine learning and deep learning algorithms. From a management perspective, our focus is on the development of new digital business models – including start-ups – and the analysis of challenges and the design of solutions in the areas of cybersecurity and privacy. We mainly work empirically in terms of methodology, but we also develop prototypical solutions, for example in the field of Deep Learning.
