Working Group 3: Future of Work and Well-Being
led by Associate Professor Louise Harder Fischer (email@example.com)
Under the sway of digital and generative technologies, the nature of work and jobs is changing rapidly. The Future of Work working group’s overarching interest is to understand how to promote well-being and quality of life as fundamental aspects as digitalization and new technologies are transforming work, working lives and the society we live in.
The working group seeks to promote a deeper sociotechnical understanding of the interdependent relationship between humans and technology, to advance societal needs by providing knowledge for developing and designing intelligent technologies that operate in harmony with human workers, and explore ways of mitigating potential risks including inequity arising from working at the human-technology frontier.
The working group will conduct multi-disciplinary research in collaboration with industry to sustain economic competitiveness, promote worker well-being and quality of life, and illuminate and problematize the emerging social and economic consequences of the technological innovations shaping the future of jobs and workplaces.
The group’s research combines perspectives, methods, and knowledge from design, information systems, computer science, economics, and the social sciences in pursuit of a deeper understanding of how human needs can be met and values respected in the midst of a fundamental digital and societal transformation.
