Together with Nicholas Berente from the American University of Notre Dame and Hani Safadi from the University of Georgia, Seidel wrote the paper “Data-Driven Computationally Intensive Theory Development”. It received an AIS Best Information Systems Publications Award from the AIS.
According to the press release, in the paper that has been awarded Seidel and his American colleagues develop “methodological bases for developing new theories using computer-aided methods based on digital data streams”.
