What does this study entail?
If you’re interested in how algorithms (re)shape the way we work, how robotisation is changing relationships among people, or how platformisation is influencing our perceptions of organising and organisations, this master programme is for you. It deals with technologies which have been at the forefront of the popular and academic imagination, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and algorithms.
Is this the right programme for you?
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.
