Article of the Week
Does technology really enhance our decision-making ability?
New research looks at the ability of recommender systems to improve decision making.  Recommender systems are artificially intelligent algorithms that use big data to suggest additional products to consumers based off of things such as past purchases, demographic information or search history, for example.  The new paper indicates that user experience and choice satisfaction can be conflated when good design creates positive feelings about an experience, which makes a participant think a good decision has been made, creating false positive situations.
