How can technology help people live, work, and learn to their full potential? In his interdisciplinary research, Associate Professor Marc Adam breaks down the barriers between humans and computers to discover how information technology can be designed in a way that engages, excites, and empowers people to achieve their goals.

“Interacting with technology has become a ubiquitous component in our daily lives,” says Marc. “At the same time, changes in technology are happening at a rapid pace.”

“By designing systems in a way that considers human cognitive, emotional, and behavioural processes, we can make sure that technology better integrates with people’s daily routines and supports them in their tasks.”

Marc applies this people-first approach to both research and teaching. In 2020, he was an inaugural recipient of a DVC(A) Merit List Award for Teaching and Learning Excellence. His teaching mantra is to demonstrate real-world applicability, inspiring students to see the potential of computing and information technology to improve people’s everyday lives.

“Mentoring the next generation of researchers is an important part of being an academic. It makes me proud to see the growth of how our PhD students during their candidature and to be able to support them in taking their research to the next level.”

Putting people first

Human-centred computing research starts with understanding human emotions and behaviour. Marc’s research examines exactly how people interact with technology: their frustrations, needs and goals. For example, are different emotional states triggered by different user interface designs? The information uncovered can then be used as a springboard for devising better systems.

“In order to capture these interactions and processes holistically, we use a range of methods such as eye tracking, interviews, and questionnaires. Further, we also employ mobile sensors such as cameras and movement sensors to unobtrusively detect user states.”

Marc’s research brings together different bodies of knowledge in creative new ways, and actively engages in interdisciplinary collaborations with experts across business, health, and psychology to adequately capture varying perspectives.

Marc was also one of the first researchers to apply neurophysiological measurements in information systems research, particularly in e-commerce. Due to his standing in the field, Marc became one of 20 international founding members of the NeuroIS Society, a premier academic organisation for scientists and professionals working at the nexus of information systems and neuroscience research and development.

“It is our goal to support basic and applied research that furthers our understanding of human cognition and affect in human-computer interaction. Thereby, a strong focus lies on the application of methods, theories, and tools from neuroscience to information systems research. For example, eye tracking and heart rate.

“This enables us to address fundamental societal questions that arise from the rapid proliferation and ubiquity of information technology in society. For example, mHealth systems for health behaviour change.”

Real-world outcomes

Marc’s work is focused on creating real-world change, and has resulted in innovative applications. In collaboration with leading researchers in dietetics and nutrition, Marc was involved in creating the No Money, No Time website, which connects busy young adults with research-based dietary advice and, via the Healthy Eating Quiz, allows them to assess and improve their eating habits.

For the interdisciplinary VISIDA project, Marc helped to design a video-based detection system that monitored people’s eating behaviours with the intention of passively detecting food intake and supporting new dietary recommendations. The design and evaluation of this system were published in the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics. Prior to the project, using spherical video to detect food intake had rarely been attempted.

“The system uses a 360-camera positioned in the centre of a table that automatically tracks the hand-to-mouth movements of the people around it. The project highlighted how deep learning architectures could successfully improve video as a diet-monitoring tool.”

Along with the field of nutrition, Marc has published widely in the areas of e-commerce, information systems and more, and has received support from prestigious institutions such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, German Research Foundation, and nib Foundation. His work continues to garner cross-industry attention and applause for its almost limitless potential to improve human-computer interactions.

“Systems development often puts a strong focus on technical aspects without considering the essential human factors. Understanding how people interact with technology deserves closer attention, and it’s exciting to see where this research could take us.”

Career Summary

Biography

Marc T. P. Adam is an Associate Professor in Computing and IT at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computing. He received a Diplom in Computer Science from the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg, Germany, and a PhD in Information Systems (Dr. rer. pol.) from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany.

Research Expertise
In my research, I investigate how the design of information systems can influence the cognitive and affective processes of human users and how this in turn affects their decision making and behavior. My research interests include: affective computing, decision making, electronic markets, health behavior, and human-computer interaction.

  • Affective Computing: With the increasing accessibility of wearable sensor technology, the integration of psychophysiological measurements into information systems has become available for everyday use. In my research, I investigate how measurements such as accelerometers, electrocardiography, eye tracking, and photoplethysmography can be used to determine user states in online and offline analysis, and adjust system components to support users in contexts such as financial decision making and health behavior.
  • Behavior Change: Information systems design can facilitate the delivery of behavior change interventions (e.g., in health promotion). In my research, I investigate how user interface elements (e.g., stylized graphical user representations such as avatars) affect the cognitive and affective processes of human users and how this in turn affects user behavior (e.g., increased fruit and vegetable intake).
  • Emotions in Markets: I was one of the first researchers to apply psychophysiological measurements in electronic commerce research. This research demonstrated the importance of affective processes in dynamic market decision making such as auctions, negotiations, and the sharing economy. Further, I explore how neuroadaptive system can provide users with decision support.

Projects

  • Health Eating Quiz (2018-2020): Dr Adam is involved in an interdisciplinary collaboration for the provision of a freely-available dietary assessment tool. HealthyEatingQuiz.com.au is designed to support users in assessing how healthy their own eating habits are and identifying opportunities to include more healthy options. 
  • No Money No Time (2018-2020): In interdisciplinary collaboration with leading researchers in dietetics & nutrition, Dr Adam is involved in the design of a platform that aims to support young adults aged 18-25 in improving their eating habits (e.g., increased fruit and vegetable intake). NMNT.com.au provides quick, low-cost, and easy healthy meal ideas along with evidence based resources to help set long-term healthy eating behaviours. The NMNT website also addresses common dietary FAQs such as "How healthy is my diet?" with a section on debunking diet myths, food hacks, and FAQs to address any confusion around food and nutrition. Dr Ashton is also working on re-branding and re-building a highly robust and free dietary assessment tool - The Healthy Eating Quiz
  • Voice-Image-Sensor Technologies for Individual Dietary Assessment (2017-2020): Within low and lower-middle income countries (LLMIC), regular and comprehensive dietary assessment at the individual level is challenging due to resource intensive methods which rely on skilled research staff and observation. In these settings more frequent assessment of the adequacy of food and nutrient intake in the context of overall nutritional status is critical to ensuring that interventions target those most in need. To address the issues with using current methods in LLMIC settings, the Visida.org project develops and evaluates a novel hybrid dietary assessment method to measure individual intake.

Teaching Expertise
In my teaching, it is my goal to provide students with an inspiring learning environment that motivates to learn and in which students can see the potential business applications of information systems in practice. Therefore, I follow an applied IT approach by (i) interactively discussing concrete cases of how IT works in a business environment, (ii) letting students interact with business IT artifacts, and (iii) demonstrating how different business areas can benefit from the advances in IT. The topics of my courses include: business analysis, design of electronic markets, design of lab and field experiments, human-computer interaction, NeuroIS, and statistical data analysis.

Collaborations
My research is based on interdisciplinary collaborations with international scholars from Computing and Information Technology and related disciplines such as Economics, Health Sciences, and Psychology.

© 2016 Experiments in the field of behavioral economics often require repeated matching of participants to groups over multiple periods. Perfect stranger matching requires that no two participants interact more than once during the experiment. Computing a sequence of perfect stranger matches is an NP-hard problem that has received little attention in experimental economics literature beyond brute-force approaches. This work provides a problem definition and an algorithm for perfect stranger matching that outperforms existing approaches in the field of experimental economics in terms of problem size and number of found matches.

© 2015 Marketing EDGE. Internet auction sites frequently employ images as design elements on their websites in order to either induce a sense of community or competition among the bidders. In this paper, we investigate the impact of such affective images on bidding behavior in a controlled laboratory experiment during which participants' emotional processes are assessed through psychophysiological measurements. Immediately before placing a bid in a first-price sealed-bid auction, bidders are presented a) pictures of competitive sports scenes, b) pictures of families or children, or c) a blank screen. Participants place significantly lower bids when they were exposed to pictures that induce competition emotions as opposed to pictures that induce community emotions. This relationship is moderated by the bidders' emotion regulation strategy. In particular, we find that the more participants try to suppress their emotional responses to the presented images, the more they are affected in their bidding behavior. Our results entail valuable insights about the coherence of emotional stimuli on Internet auction marketplaces and customers' decisions. They also question recent marketing strategies by the market leader.

Auction sites on the Internet frequently put bidders under time pressure or highlight the social competition that is inherent to auctions. Both aspects are believed to elicit an exciting shopping experience, which may culminate in auction fever. In two laboratory experiments, we investigate the process of auction fever in retail auctions and demonstrate when and how auction fever affects bidding behavior. In contrast to previous studies, we employ physiological measurements as an objective and continuous assessment of bidders' arousal in addition to a subjective assessment of bidders' emotions through psychometric scales. Moreover, we explicitly study the interaction of time pressure and social competition on arousal and bids. We find that bidders' arousal is increased in high time pressure auctions and that this leads to higher bids in ascending auctions-but only when bidders compete with human opponents. Thus, social competition is the actual driver underlying the auction fever phenomenon. Furthermore, we show that the "joy of winning" is significantly stronger than the "frustration of losing" in ascending auctions. Finally, we discuss the implications of our findings for the design of retail auctions.

© 2013 IEEE. Emotion elicitation and classification have been performed on standardized stimuli sets, such as international affective picture systems and international affective digital sound. However, the literature which elicits and classifies emotions in a financial decision making context is scarce. In this paper, we present an evaluation to detect emotions of private investors through a controlled trading experiment. Subjects reported their level of "rejoice" and "regret" based on trading outcomes, and physiological measurements of skin conductance response and heart rate were obtained. To detect emotions, three labeling methods, namely binary, tri-, and tetrastate "blended" models were compared by means of C4.5, CART, and random forest algorithms, across different window lengths for heart rate. Taking moving window lengths of 2.5 s prior to and 0.3 s postevent (parasympathetic phase) led to the highest accuracies. Comparing labeling methods, accuracies were 67% for binary rejoice, 44% for a tristate, and 45% for a tetrastate blended emotion models. The CART yielded the highest accuracies.

© 2018 Copyright held by the owner/author(s). Stock market prediction plays an important role in financial decision-making for investors. Many of them rely on news disclosures to make their decisions in buying or selling stocks. However, accurate modelling of stock market trends via news disclosures is a challenging task, considering the complexity and ambiguity of natural languages used. Unlike previous work along this line of research, which typically applies bag-of-words to extract tens of thousands of features to build a prediction model, we propose a sentiment analysis-based approach for financial market prediction using news disclosures. Specifically, sentiment analysis is carried out in the pre-processing phase to extract sentiment-related features from financial news. Historical stock market data from the perspective of time series analysis is also included as an input feature. With the extracted features, we use a support vector machine (SVM) to build the prediction model, with its parameters optimised through particle swarm optimisation (PSO). Experimental results show that our proposed SVM and PSO-based model is able to obtain better results than a deep learning model in terms of time and accuracy. The results presented here are to date the best in the literature based on the financial news dataset tested. This excellent performance is attributed to the sentiment analysis done during the pre-processing stage, as it reduces the feature dimensions significantly.

© ACIS 2017. Mobile health, or mHealth in short, concerns using mobile devices to provide health information to users. Research has shown that the use of avatars within mHealth applications can improve health outcomes. While several studies have investigated the design of avatars for mHealth applications, these studies focused solely on western cultures and most of them have not considered whether design principles are different between Western and Arabic users. This work will investigate the design of Arabic avatars by conducting a qualitative study, which includes semi-structured interviews with multiple stakeholders. The study will adopt a co-design methodology to derive design principles for persuasive Arabic avatars in the context of mHealth. In particular, it is our aim to increase users' perceived social presence and intention to use persuasive mHealth avatars by taking Arabic culture into consideration. The work may lead to a higher level of adoption of avatar-based mHealth applications in Arabic countries.

Management decisions are taken by human beings, not by robots. Consequently, management decisions, and of course also the respective managers, are affected by emotions. Thus, they rely on accurate emotional processing. Research on decision making has shown that individuals with high emotion regulation capabilities perform better in taking effective decisions. Managers perpetually have to take rapid decisions in fast-paced environments, between the poles of diverse interests and motives of colleagues, customers, partners, and rivals. Sophisticated management is the key to any business. Therefore, we argue that IS research should build on the advances in cognitive neuroscience and harness the potential of NeuroIS tools in the field of management support. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework and taxonomy for how NeuroIS tools may support managers in taking effective decisions by firstly improving their emotion regulation capabilities and, secondly, providing them with real-time feedback and decision support based on physiological measurements. Based on the framework, we outline a specific application for how emotions can affect decision making in the dynamic process of negotiations and for how NeuroIS research can contribute to a better understanding of the underlying visceral processes.

Research on financial decision-making shows that traders and investors with high emotion regulation capabilities perform better in trading. But how can the others learn to regulate their emotions? 'Learning by doing' sounds like a straightforward approach. But how can one perform 'learning by doing' when there is no feedback? This problem particularly applies to learning emotion regulation, because learners can get practically no feedback on their level of emotion regulation. Our research aims at providing a learning environment that can help decision-makers to improve their emotion regulation. The approach is based on a serious game with real-time biofeedback. The game is settled in a financial context and the decision scenario is directly linked to the individual biofeedback of the learner's heart rate data. More specifically, depending on the learner's ability to regulate emotions, the decision scenario of the game continuously adjusts and thereby becomes more (or less) difficult. The learner wears an electrocardiogram sensor that transfers the data via Bluetooth to the game. The game itself is evaluated at several levels.

Information systems have revolutionized the nature of markets. Traditionally, markets inherently comprised the strategic interaction of human traders only. Nowadays, however, automated trading agents are responsible for at least 60% of the US trading volume on financial stock markets. In this respect, financial markets of the 21st century are different to markets of previous centuries. Fuelled by discussions on their possible risks, there is a need for research on the effects of automated trading agents on market efficiency and on human traders. In order to systematically investigate these issues, we introduce a market framework for human-computer interaction. This framework is then applied in a case study on a financial market scenario. In particular, we plan to conduct a NeuroIS experiment in which we analyze overall market efficiency as well as the trading behavior and emotional responses of human traders when they interact with computerized trading agents.

Although the importance of emotions in economic decision-making is being widely accepted, it is still unclear how and to what extent emotional processing affects economic behavior. In this paper, we propose a new methodological framework for behavioral IS studies that we call physioeconomics, by which it is possible to measure psychophysiological correlates of human emotions during controlled laboratory experiments. In contrast to brain imaging technologies as in NeuroIS, the analysis of autonomic physiological parameters can be achieved with a comparatively low amount of measurement overhead and, thus, allows collecting empirical data for much larger sample sizes. Therefore, this approach is particularly qualified for the study of emotions in electronic markets. In order to show that physioeconomics is able to provide insightful results we apply this method in an exemplary auction experiment in which we compare bidders' arousal throughout the bidding process and in response to winning or losing.
