New paper on human-AI interaction

In a new working paper (available on my faculty page: https://www.uibk.ac.at/smt/international-management/research/), Ben Greiner (http://ben.orsee.org/), Philipp Grünwald, Georg Lintner, Martin Wiernsperger (https://www.wu.ac.at/ifu/about/ifu-team/martin-wiernsperger/), and myself explore how people interact with AI-driven decision-support systems.

After a presentation on November 23 with our data sponsor Deutsche Börse (the
