For example, artificial intelligence has enabled people to make better decisions hrough the use of Intelligent Decision Support Systems (DSS). Emerging research in DSS demonstrates that decision makers can operate in a more timely manner using real-time data, more accurately due to data mining and 'big data' methods, more strategically by considering a greater number of factors, more precisely and inclusively due to the availability of social networking data, and with a wider media reach with video and audio technology._x000D_ _x000D_This book presents the proceedings of the IFIP TC8/Working Group 8.3 conference held at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France, in June 2014.

The topics covered include theoretical, empirical and design science research; case-based approaches in decision support systems; decision models in the real-world; healthcare information technology; decision making theory; knowledge management; knowledge and resource discovery; business intelligence; group decision support systems; collaborative decision making; analytics and ‘big data’; rich language for decision support; multimedia tools for DSS; Web 2.0 systems in decision support; context-based technologies for decision making; intelligent systems and technologies in decision support; organizational decision support; research methods in DSS 2.0; mobile DSS; competing on analytics; and social media analytics._x000D_ _x000D_ The book will be of interest to all those who develop or use Decision Support Systems.

Produkte werden technisch immer ausgefeilter, es gibt Dutzende verschiedene Versionen, aus denen der Kunde wählen kann. Trotzdem liegen sie wie Blei in den Regalen. Warum? Hersteller beachten nicht, welchen "Job" ein Produkt oder auch eine Dienstleistung für den Kunden erfüllen soll. Clayton M. Christensen liefert mit dem "Jobs to Be Done"-Ansatz eine umfassende Theorie, wie man die Wünsche der Kunden erkennt und in den eigenen Produkten oder Dienstleistungen umsetzt. Er zeigt die praktische Anwendung und welche Auswirkungen die Methode auf Organisationsstrukturen und Führungsentscheidungen hat. So wird Innovation von der reinen Glückssache zu einem planbaren Prozess, der Unternehmen den entscheidenden Marktvorteil bringt.

The Allgemeines Kunstlerlexikon (AKL) follows on from its predecessors, the standard art history works Thieme-Becker and Vollmer, and has been published in print form by K. G. Saur Verlag since 1991. A standard work by itself, this encyclopaedia does not only include the most famous artists, but also records artists from all over the globe and throughout the ages from antiquity to the present. It contains not only painters, sculptors, and architects, but gives equal weight to sculptors in marble, restorers, calligraphers, or craftsmen, to name but a few of the many hundreds of artistic professions found in the AKL. By the end of 2007, 56 volumes were published, covering the letters A-Goepfart. For each volume around 2,500 artist biographies are compiled. Indexes by country and artistic occupation follow each ten volumes. The first volumes of the AKL were compiled from 1969 onwards. This period of almost four decades will now be covered in supplementary volumes, the first of which was published in 2005, for the letter A. The second supplementary volume for the letter B was published in 2007.

John Watson über dieses Buch: "Dieses Buch ist mein bescheidener Versuch, ein wenig Licht auf die Arbeit des besten und weisesten Menschen zu werfen, den ich je gekannt habe. Er hat – wenn ich das so sagen darf – die Wissenschaft der Deduktion zur Kunst erhoben. Nachdem ich bei einigen seiner bedeutendsten Fälle an seiner Seite sein durfte, liegt es nun an mir, seine Verdienste einem breiteren Publikum zu präsentieren. Er ist, um es kurz zu machen, der Mozart der Kriminalwissenschaft. Ich würde gern noch fortfahren, doch mit großer Freude darf ich Ihnen sagen, dass Sherlock Holmes persönlich zugesagt hat, einen Teil dieses Textes zu schreiben ..." Sherlock Holmes über dieses Buch: "Kaufen Sie dieses Buch auf keinen Fall. Was eigentlich eine Serie von spannenden Vorträgen hätte werden sollen, hat der Autor zu geschmackloser, billiger Unterhaltung degradiert. Die Wissenschaft der Deduktion ist eine Sparte menschlicher Errungenschaften, die ernsthafte Analysen erfordert, und hier ist nun dieses verschwenderisch gestaltete Buch durch Humor entstellt und mit Klatsch und Tratsch vergiftet. Offenbar ist diese Art der Sensationsgier nötig, um das Interesse der lesenden Bevölkerung zu wecken, aber nur ein Idiot wäre hiervon beeindruckt. Sie entscheiden."

Computer sind mittlerweile so intelligent geworden, dass die nächste industrielle Revolution unmittelbar bevorsteht. Wer profitiert, wer verliert? Antworten auf diese Fragen bietet das neue Buch der Technologie-Profis Erik Brynjolfsson und Andrew McAfee. Seit Jahren arbeiten wir mit Computern - und Computer für uns. Mittlerweile sind die Maschinen so intelligent geworden, dass sie zu Leistungen fähig sind, die vor Kurzem noch undenkbar waren: Sie fahren Auto, sie schreiben eigene Texte - und sie besiegen Großmeister im Schach. Dieser Entwicklungssprung ist nur der Anfang. In ihrem neuen Buch zeigen zwei renommierte Professoren, welch atemberaubende Entwicklungen uns noch bevorstehen: Die zweite industrielle Revolution kommt! Welche Auswirkungen wird das haben? Welche Chancen winken, welche Risiken drohen? Was geschieht dabei mit den Menschen, was mit der Umwelt? Und was werden Gesellschaft und Politik tun, um die Auswirkungen dieser "neuen digitalen Intelligenz" für alle bestmöglich zu gestalten? Dieses Buch nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise in eine Zukunft, die schon längst begonnen hat.
