During my post-doc I will be involved in a broad project on "Improving the use of decison-support systems" - DSS for short (official synopsis here). Many DSS systems exist to facilitate decision making for people in business settings and elsewhere. However, we consistently see that people fail to follow the advice or predictions provided by these systems. This is despite the fact that, in almost every case, DSS provided advice leads to better results.
In general, we aim to understand people's reluctance in following DSS recommendations. To this end, we plan to use data provided by large companies on DSS use by their employers to generate viable hypotheses which we can then test in more controlled conditions.
I will be periodically updating this section on our latest findings and for those who are interested and would like to get in touch, you can find my information on the "contact" section of this website.
