Human-Machine Partnerships in the Future of Work: Exploring the Role of Emerging Technologies in Future Workplaces
23 October 2021 - 24 October 2021
In this workshop ‘Human-Machine Partnerships in the Future of Work: Exploring the Role of Emerging Technologies in Future Workplaces’ we seek to unpack the meaning of human-machine partnerships (HMP) by highlighting that how we define HMP will shape how we design technologies in/for the future of work. We discuss social and design implications in various professional and organizational settings and explore how we can broaden and redefine HMP. Encouraging interdisciplinary perspectives, we aim to develop a taxonomy of HMP by which we can expand our relationship with embodied AI agents and also evaluate and reconsider existing theories, methodologies, and epistemologies in HMP research.
The program (provisional) includes a mix of talks from selected and invited speakers, and hands-on group activities where we will explore the use of speculative design to envision future collaborations between humans and AI/robots.
