Regulating Big-Tech to Rein in Gambling-Like Behavior in the Stock Market
Not all dangerous trading comes from insider trading practices, fraud or false and misleading information. Social media and tech platforms can also cause people to engage in risky trading, a new study by Purdue University’s Mohammad Rahman, the Daniels School Chair in Management, demonstrates.
Research shows disparity in borrower benefits between local banks and online lenders
The proliferation of online marketplace lending has been disrupting the consumer credit market, giving borrowers increased options for consolidating debt and building credit. Although marketplace lenders like the Lending Club, Prosper and others can transcend the geographic boundaries of traditional banks, the ultimate benefits to marketplace borrowers can still differ because local opportunities to replace marketplace loans vary.
Data Confidence: Blockchain technology helps users share rewards
Facebook’s announcement to get into the banking business is putting a new spotlight on blockchain technology. Facebook plans to launch a blockchain-based financial network using Libra, which is being touted as the tech giant’s digital currency. Purdue University researchers led by Krannert Professor Mohammad Rahman have developed X-Blockchain, a crypto-powered ledger technology that allows users to perform transactions in a confidential manner.
Left Behind: How disruptive technology may choose society's winners and losers
New platforms like home- and ride-sharing services often are praised for leveling the playing field, cutting out the middle man and boosting the economy. However, what if the explosion of disruptive technology is exploiting our biases, rather than helping us overcome them? This phenomenon is highlighted by new findings from an Airbnb study by Prof. Mohammand Rahman and doctoral student Mohammed Alyakoob from Purdue University's Krannert School of Management.
Mohammad Rahman graduated with a degree in computer science during the emergence of a digital renaissance, going on to become an MBA student who foresaw both technology’s transformative role in commerce and its destructive potential. Rahman, now a professor in the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University, studies how digital platforms have grown to revolutionize the world of retail and fundamentally change how businesses interact with consumers.
Airbnb affects on parallel industries
Tourism activity in areas with a rise in Airbnb rentals could spill over into complementary industries, such as the restaurant business, unless those neighborhoods are predominantly black or Hispanic, a new study suggests.
A pair of faculty members from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management recently won a research grant of $50,000 from Adobe Systems as part of an industry and academic collaboration that aims to find new ways to solve the challenges that plague today’s online marketers.
Smart cars, smart streets and smart homes could make life much easier, but what's the tradeoff? Mohammad Rahman, a Purdue University associate professor of management information systems, says the quandary surrounding data and its ownership is important to some people. But for the most part, consumers have indicated that they prefer convenience over privacy.
Where You Live Still Matters
Professor Mohammad Saifur Rahman is an Associate Professor of Management at the Krannert School of Management, Purdue University. He was named one of the World's Top 40 Business School Professors Under 40 by Poets and Quants in 2017.
Online retail technologies
Prabuddha De, Accenture Professor of Information Technology, and Mohammad Rahman, associate professor of management, both in the Krannert School of Management, along with former Krannert colleague Yu Hu, currently associate professor at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business, conducted the research. They partnered with a large online women’s clothing retailer to study the effectiveness of navigational technologies, such as search and recommendation systems, and product-oriented technologies, including a zoom-in feature, color swatches and alternative photos.
