My research field is on knowledge on the Internet for business purposes. Major topics of research are related to rationality of users of Internet services (e.g. privacy calculus), effective means for business decision makers of extracting reliable knowledge from internet sources (e.g. understanding and adoption of sentiment mining and prediction results for marketing decisions), and the design and implementation of industry 4.0 (e.g. use of cognitive computing in services and manufacturing).
