报告简介:

The blockchain-based track and trace (BCT) is increasingly adopted in the retail supply chain. Despite popular press showcasing success stories of blockchain implementations, there is little rigorous empirical evidence demonstrating the real benefits of the blockchain. We suggest that the blockchain not only can streamline backend supply chain operations, but also has a consumer-facing and “social” aspect to it. Drawing on signaling theory, we suggest that BCT can enhance supply chain transparency and reduce information asymmetry of product quality between sellers and consumers with high reliability. Using transaction data from a leading global e-retailer that contains 540 SKUs and spanning 80 weeks, we design a quasi-natural experiment to estimate the effects of BCT signaling on customer purchases of food and nutrition products. Our research uncovered the significant positive effect of BCT on the number of unique visitors, the number of new buyers, the total number of buyers, and the sales quantity per buyer. We also found nuanced moderation effects of product characteristics. Specifically, the positive effect of BCT is magnified for products that have inconsistent customer reviews, and for products sourced globally. These findings suggest that BCT and other social technologies, specifically consumer generated online reviews, can jointly impact consumer purchases. Our post-hoc analysis suggests varying effects of BCT across product categories, and signaling effect is stronger for product with higher quality evaluation cost. Together, our findings provide rigorous empirical evidence that BCT can increase website traffic and revenue, and shed light on the characteristics and categories of products that can benefit from BCT.

报告题目:How Uber Is Shaping Public Transit System: A Counterfactual Estimator Approach

报告简介:

The new sharing economy model has introduced a dramatic, disruptive impact on the traditional industries by matching the demand and supply in real-time. In this paper, we examine how the entry of Uber, a ride-sharing services digital platform, brings new disruptive changes in public transportation operations. Significant debate has surrounded whether the new ride-sharing model siphoned riders from public transit or made public transit feasible for more riders, but no consensus has been reached. One reason could be that the commonly used difference-in-differences empirical strategy fails to account for time-varying unobserved confounders. To address this issue, we introduce a class of counterfactual estimators (CEs) to strengthen our causal identification and perform diagnostic tests to validate model assumptions for each CE. A significant drop in passenger trips with buses is found after Uber entry from both the conventional two-way fixed effects model and the counterfactual estimators. Moreover, we provide empirical evidence that the entry of Uber has not significantly affected public demand response transportation, which indicates that Uber is not directly competing with other transportation services that aim to solve the “last mile problem.” Last, our additional analyses suggest that the effect of Uber entry is not uniform for different urban areas. All these empirical findings can be coherently explained in our framework of the substitution effect of Uber.

报告题目:Infectious Confidence: Unraveling the Effects of Confidence Contagion on Overfunding in Equity Crowdfunding

报告简介:

Overfunding was touted as extraordinary success in equity crowdfunding since fundraisers receive more funds than the intended funding goal. A novel theoretical lens is in demand for comprehending why funders show an exceptional level of enthusiasm in supporting certain equity crowdfunding campaigns that far exceeds their fundraisers’ original expectations. Building on extant literature on contagion effect, we construct a research model that posits confidence contagion enacted by confidence cues embedded in campaign materials as a key driver of overfunding. Our hypotheses were validated in two complementary empirical studies. In Study 1, we manipulated confidence cues in a controlled experiment to verify the enactment of confidence contagion at the individual level. Analytical results indicate that individual funders can perceive self-confidence traits from confidence cues embedded in campaign materials and assimilate fundraisers’ confidence via a spontaneous social appraisal mechanism. In turn, confidence contagion can drive funders to congregate and invest in a campaign. In Study 2, we analyzed a secondary dataset collected from a leading equity crowdfunding platform to discern how confidence contagion drives overfunding at the collective level. By modeling funding activities as a Hawkes process, we derived three key metrics that govern the emergence and magnitude of funding surges. We demonstrated that these metrics of funding surges mediate the impact of confidence cues on the level of overfunding for each equity crowdfunding campaign. Findings from this study can inform future research that seeks to untangle the interdependencies between individual and collective mechanisms underlying crowd phenomena. Fundraisers who could benefit from excessive funds can harness insights from this study to strategize their campaigns. Likewise, crowdfunding platforms can leverage on our findings to predict the extent of overfunding and advise fundraisers accordingly.

报告简介:

In this talk, I present a series of research studies that examine the role of social media in financial markets. Specifically, I examine the following research questions: (1) Do social media opinions disseminated on social media help predict future stock returns? (2) How does monetary incentive affect stock recommendations on social media? (3) How can signal be distinguished from noise on social media to make better predictions of Bitcoin returns? (4) How does fake news on social media affect investor attention and stock returns? and (5) How does investors’ impression management behavior lead to bias in social media transmission?

报告题目:More than Words in Medical Question-and-Answer Sites: A Content-Context Congruence Perspective

报告简介:

Given the popularity and prevalence of medical question-and-answer (Q&A) services, it is increasingly important to understand what constitutes a helpful answer in the medical domain. Prior studies on user-generated content have examined the independent impacts of content and source characteristics on reader perception of the content's value. In the setting of medical Q&A sites, we propose a novel content-context congruence perspective with a focus on the role of congruence between an answer’s content and the answer’s contextual cues. Specifically, we identify two types of contextual cues critical in this unique setting—the language attributes (i.e., concreteness and emotional intensity) of the question’s content, and the acuteness of the disease to which the question is related. Building on the priming literature and construal-level theory, we hypothesize that an answer will be perceived as more helpful if the language attributes of the answer’s content are congruent with those of the preceding question, and if they are congruent with the disease’s acuteness. Analyses of a unique data set from WebMD Answers provide empirical evidence for our theoretical model. This research deepens our understanding of readers’ value judgment of online medical information, demonstrates the importance of considering the congruence of content with contextual cues, and opens up exciting opportunities for future research to explore the role of content-context congruence in all varieties of user-generated content. Our findings also provide direct practical implications for knowledge contributors and Q&A sites.

报告简介:

Nowadays, people are faced with choices between or among alternative systems (joint evaluation, or JE mode), as opposed to evaluating only one system in isolation (separate evaluation, or SE mode). This research investigates how users make technology adoption decisions in these two contexts. Based on the context-specific theorization framework proposed by Hong et al. (2014) and integrating general evaluability theory and construal level theory, we theorize how evaluation mode (JE versus SE), as a usage context variable, interacts with other aspects of IS contexts to influence technology adoption. The IS contexts considered in this work include a user characteristic variable (construal level) and technology-related factors (perceived ease of use, PEoU, and perceived usefulness, PU). In two studies (N = 272 and N = 112), participants were presented with two new e-learning systems either in JE or SE mode. Because study (1) was conducted in two natural settings and study (2) had participants randomly assigned to manipulated evaluation modes, these two studies complement each other to offer internal and external validities. We found that in JE a higher construal level strengthened the effect of PEoU but weakened that of PU on technology adoption. These effects were reversed in SE. The findings suggest that users’ technology choices and preferences can be reversed by simply presenting the target system in different ways.
