The awareness of emerging trends is essential for strategic decision making because technological trends can affect a firm’s competitiveness and market position. The rise of artificial intelligence methods allows gathering new insights and may support these decision-making processes. However, it is essential to keep the human in the loop of these complex analytical tasks, which, often lack an appropriate interaction design. Including special interactive designs for technology and innovation management is therefore essential for successfully analyzing emerging trends and using this information for strategic decision making. A combination of information visualization, trend mining and interaction design can support human users to explore, detect, and identify such trends. This paper enhances and extends a previously published first approach for integrating, enriching, mining, analyzing, identifying, and visualizing emerging trends for technology and innovation management. We introduce a novel interaction design by investigating the main ideas from technology and innovation management and enable a more appropriate interaction approach for technology foresight and innovation detection.

The rapid change due to digitalization challenge a variety of market players and force them to find strategies to be aware of developments in these markets, particularly those that impact their business. The main challenge is what a practical solution could look like and how technology can support market players in these trend observation tasks. The paper outlines therefore a technological solution to observe specific authors e.g. researchers who influence a certain market or engineers of competitors. In many branches both are well-known groups to market players and there is almost always the need of a technology that supports the topical observation. This paper focuses on the concept of how a visual dashboard could enable a market observation and how data must be processed for it and its prototypical implementation which enables an evaluation later. Furthermore, the definition of a principal technological analysis for innovation and technology management is created and is also an important contribution to the scientific community that specifically considers the technology perspective and its corresponding requirements.

Im Rahmen des Vorhabens soll mit „AVARTIM“ ein softwaregestützter Prozess zum Erkennen und Bewerten von Trends, Markt- und Technologiesignalen entwickelt werden, um den Prozess des Innovations- und Technologiemanagements nachhaltig zu unterstützen. Dabei soll im Rahmen des Vorhabens eine Infrastruktur an der Hochschule Darmstadt aufgebaut werden, die modular ist und somit auf technologische Veränderungen schnell reagieren kann. Die zu entwickelnde Infrastruktur dient hierbei als Vorlaufforschung und Ausgangstechnologie sowohl für den industriellen Einsatz durch und mit den KMU Partnern als auch zur Beantragung von Verbundvorhaben.

Through coupling of Data Mining, Visual Analytics and Business Analytics techniques, we created a novel solution for strategic market analysis with focus on early trend recognition. As fundament, we are able to consider a variety of text data, as for instance research publications available from a number of (open access) digital libraries, reports and other data from companies, web data about markets as well as news from companies or social media data etc. In an advanced and unified processing pipeline, the information is extracted and mined for a variety of analytical purposes. Via an interactive analysis user-interface, domain experts are able to analysis strong and weak signals in perspective of upcoming trends.
