What you will learn
The programme elaborates on questions such as the type of work that is affected by these technologies and how, the kind of perspectives and (in)equalities this brings about and for whom, the ethical and privacy concerns that may rise, and how we might deal with the consequences of these technologies on the individual, organisational, and societal level. It provides you with tools to navigate these issues, to develop your own understanding of them and to be able to advance technological interventions or intervene in them.
Is this the right programme for you?
Rapid digital transformations, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and algorithms, change the organisation of work. This raises questions on the individual, organisational, and societal level. For example:
- How does AI reshape collaboration and communication among employees?
- Are hierarchical relationships at work restructured by robotisation?
- Does platformisation influence our understanding of self-employed workers?
The programme provides you with multiple perspectives and tools to study digital technologies in the changing world of work (building on insights from Psychology, Sociology, and Public Administration).
