Fleischmann, Kenneth R., Robbins, Russell W. and Wallace, William A. (2011): Collaborative learning of ethical decision-making via simulated cases. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 319-326.

This paper describes the development and evaluation of an educational simulation that supports collaborative learning of ethical decision-making (EDM). This collaboration-based simulation serves as the core component of an information ethics course. Twenty-two graduate students used the simulation during the second half of a semester-long course. Twenty of the twenty-two

Gur-Ali, Ozden and Wallace, William A. (1995): Classifying Delinquent Customers for Credit Collections: An Application of Probabilistic Inductive Learning. In International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 42 (6) pp. 633-646.

Probabilistic Inductive Learning (PrIL), a methodology that incorporates statistically determined measures of goodness with tree inductive algorithms from machine learning, has been applied to the credit collection operations of a major bank. Rules were induced from past customer account data to predict whether an account that is one month delinquent will be rectified or remain delinquent. Each of the rules has a reliability greater than that prescribed by management. The induced rules out-performed current scoring methods in predicting customer behavior on a holdout dataset. In addition, using the rules will result in matching current performance with 30% fewer contacts with delinquent customers.

DeHaemer, Michael J. and Wallace, William A. (1992): The Effects on Decision Task Performance of Computer Synthetic Voice Output. In International Journal of Man-Machine Studies, 36 (1) pp. 65-80.

Computer-synthesized voice has reached technological maturity and is expected to help resolve some of the human-computer interface difficulties. Research was conducted which focused on the utility of adding computer voice output to a microcomputer work station for decision support. Specifically the computer voice duplicated instructions that were printed on the screen for a visual display task in order to facilitate "eyes on" the visual problem. Response time and the number of errors were compared with conditions without computer voice. Since cognitive style, or decision style, has been recognized as an important individual difference for interface design, subjects were classified as having an analytic, heuristic or neutral decision style. The results found a surprising interaction effect between decision style and computer synthetic voice. Response time and errors improved for the analytic subjects, were degraded for the heuristic subjects, and were unchanged for the neutral subjects. These findings are important for the design of the human-computer interface because 45% of the subjects were in the affected groups. This paper is thought to be the first evaluation of the effects of adding computer synthesized voice instructions to a computer work station for decision making.
