Keywords: doctoral seminar, syllabus

In the past five years or so, the popular media and, more recently, academic discourse, have been brimming with accounts of how new technological advances in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), robots, and algorithms will transform the landscape of work, with ramifications for occupations and employment on a potentially grand scale. In this doctoral seminar, we will examine the claims, the current reality, and likely futures of work in the age of these new technologies.

Developing Skills to Work in the Age of Intelligent Machines: Pre-HICSS workshop

This half-day workshop aims to favor the skill's development among its participants to face the new work market and to collaborate with intelligent machines, and to create a transdisciplinary language for researching and to identify the need resources for working in the age of machines. We define intelligent machines as both material (e.g., robots) and immaterial (e.g., algorithms) computing technologies that can be characterized by autonomy, the ability to learn, and the ability to interact with other systems and with humans.

HCOMP Workshop

This all-day workshop (on 5 July 2018 in conjunction with the HCOMP conference in Zürich Switzerland) has the aim of promoting research convergence among participants on topics related to future forms of work (i.e., humans doing their jobs) with intelligent machines. We define intelligent machines as computing technologies characterized by autonomy, the ability to learn, and the ability to interact with other systems and with humans: robots and algorithms interacting with people.

Round table on The Future of Work: Intelligent Machines, Automation, and Societal Impacts
