The research group “Information Systems I” (ISSD) headed by Prof. Mädche focuses in research, education, and innovation on designing interactive intelligent systems.  The research group is positioned at the intersection of Information Systems (IS) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Our mission is to create impactful scientific knowledge for designing interactive intelligent systems to increase human productivity and well-being. We believe that delivering cutting-edge knowledge and inspiring education, as well as an ongoing dialog with the public need to go hand in hand to maximize the impact of our work in organizations and society.

The group is organized in three research departments: Digital Experience & ParticipationIntelligent Enterprise Systems, and Interactive Systems Engineering. Current research topics of research are:

Eye-based Interactive Systems meet Media Art
Eye-based Interactive Systems meet Media Art

As part of the Digilog project, the eye-based interactive systems research team of the research group Information Systems I at IISM has successfully deployed two prototypes at Digiloglounge No. 2. at ZKM, the center for art and media in Karlsruhe. Besides the “Eye-Tracking Kiosk” that is already available since December 2021, the second prototype is called PrEyeCo (Privacy-EyeTracking-Collaboration). It is a multiplayer game leveraging eye-tracking technology to support a cooperation task.



Both prototypes, the “Eye-tracking Kiosk” and “PrEyeCo”, will be publicly available for visitors at ZKM until end of August 2022. For the opening hours and further information, please check the ZKM website.

Special Issue on “Conversational Agents“ in the Journal of Interactive Media (i-com)
Special Issue on "Conversational Agents" in the Journal of Interactive Media (i-com)

In cooperation with University of Siegen and TH Ingolstadt Prof. Mädche coordinates a special issue in the Journal of interactive Media (i-com) on conversational agents. Conversational agents (CAs) are heavily discussed within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Systems (IS). CAs are software systems designed to interact with humans using natural language. For this special issue we invite contributions in the field of conversational agents that are unique, thought-provoking, and impactful.

New Publication in BISE: “Opposing Effects of Response Time in Human-Chatbot Interaction – The Moderating Role of Prior Experience”
New Publication in BISE: "Opposing Effects of Response Time in Human-Chatbot Interaction - The Moderating Role of Prior Experience"

The Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE) journal has published a new research article titled “Opposing Effects of Response Time in Human-Chatbot Interaction – The Moderating Role of Prior Experience” by Ulrich Gnewuch, Stefan Morana, Marc T. P. Adam and Alexander Maedche. In this article, we investigate how the response time of a chatbot influences users’ social presence perceptions and chatbot usage intentions. Our results show that a delayed (vs. instant) chatbot response time has opposing effects on social presence for novice and experienced users: While a delayed response time positively influences novice users’ perceptions and intentions, the effect is negative for experienced users.

[Lecture DIS] Designing Interactive Systems with Capstone Project

Computers have evolved from batch processors towards highly interactive systems. This offers new possibilities but also challenges for the successful design of the interaction between human and computer.  Interactive system are socio-technical systems in which users perform tasks by interacting with technology in a specific context in order to achieve specified goals and outcomes. The aim of this course is to introduce advanced concepts and theories, interaction technologies as well as current practice of contemporary interactive systems.
