The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data technologies in the ecosystem has reshaped the concept of value co-creation. Still, there is a need to renovate this concept from a digital perspective. This study conceptualizes the dynamic relationships between AI, big data, and value co-creation. The conceptual framework in this study adopts the S-D logic to connect the two players (customer as creator and firm as a user) of big data. This framework elucidates that big data is a c...

/ Ibrahim Niankara / Ghaleb El Refae / Amer Qasim

This study relies on a spatial bivariate copula regression analysis of data on youth respondents from five Middle Eastern countries, extracted from the 2018 Program for international students’ assessment (PISA). Focusing specifically on evaluating the availability of ICT resources to the youth population, and also identifying the impact of ICT resources on youth subjective well-being in the region, we find that except for the UAE and Qatar that have above OECD average youth performance on the I...

Education's effect on Food and Monetary Security in Burkina Faso: A Joint Semi-parametric and Spatial Analysis

Published in: Interdisciplinary Working Papers

/ Ibrahim Niankara

This paper tests human capital theory predictions with respect to formal education, using Burkina Faso's 2014 National Survey on Households Living Conditions, along with geospatial meta-data and semi-parametric modeling techniques. In its design the study relies on households “willingness and ability” to spend annually a per-capita amount above the poverty thresholds to characterize “household food security” and “monetary security”. We find that relaxing the linearity and independence assumptio...

This study investigates the determinants of supplemental coverage and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) enrollments among US health care consumers. It does so using a pooled cross-section of the 2015-2016 national health interview surveys (NHIS), along with (semi)parametric bi-variate probit modeling methods. We find that supplemental coverage and FSAs are complement health solutions with a positive 14.7% correlation. The findings also emphasize that the most important trigger factors influenci...

Sustainability through open data sharing and reuse in the Digital Economy

Published in: Interdisciplinary Working Papers

Oct 04, 2020

/ Ibrahim Niankara

In order to meet the needs of an increasingly complex research landscape, researchers engage in collaborative production and consumption through open data sharing and reuse. Although significant gains have been achieved in this regards because of growing requirements from funding agencies, governments and journals, the question of how reuse of openly available data for new research contribute to sustainability is yet to be appropriately addressed in the literature. Therefore, relying on a ...

Relying on a pooled-cross-sectional panel of the 2014 and 2017 Global Findex data, and a Random Utility Theoretic Model for revealed financial preferences data analysis, this paper examines the impact of government and private sector electronic transfer practices on financial inclusion, in terms of individuals’ ability to save and borrow within the Economic Community of the West African States (ECOWAS). For sensitivity analysis, we adopt a sequential empirical strategy in which we estimate and ...

A Random Utility Model of Stated Vaccine Preferences Analysis: With application to COVID-19 Vaccine Demand in the UAE

Published in: Interdisciplinary Working Papers

Oct 04, 2020

/ Ibrahim Niankara / Riham Muqattash Aminata Niankara Rachidatou I. Traoret

Vaccine demand and overall uptake in a health or economic system has the potential to drive herd immunity, a required condition for controlling the societal impact of vaccine preventable diseases. With significant financial commitments to find a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine still ongoing, this study introduces a random utility theoretic behavioral health model to analyze individuals' prospective demand for the vaccine in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). To this end, we use a cross-section...
