A new paper from our group was published in Nature Machine Intelligence: Improving customer decisions in web-based e-commerce through guerrilla modding, and was featured in the issue’s editorial.
Abstract: The provisioning of information about product attributes in e-commerce environments is today left entirely to owners of online platforms. In this comment, we demonstrate how product transparency in online stores can be increased by client-side enrichment of retailer Web pages, discuss the technical and legal feasibility of such guerrilla modding, and show that this has the potential to improve customer decision-making in a randomized controlled trial.
