The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the world of work has already begun. Combined with increasing digitization, AI will change the working lives of many. While some traditional professions and business models will disappear, completely new ones will emerge. One thing is clear: work as we know it is on the cusp of a fundamental transformation.
“I see great opportunities in AI for inclusion and participation for all,” says Matthias Peissner, head of the Human-Technology Interaction research group at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO. “We should avoid the mistake of trying to hold on to what we know. We have to acknowledge that this change is happening. If we don’t, we will miss out as a society.”
To what extent can society help steer these developments? What should the future of work look like? Where do we even want to go? We address these and other questions in the second episode of “Direktdurchwahl”.
