Transformations Platform: Talk by Elena Raviola
Talk by Elena Raviola, Associate Professor, University of Gothenburg: Studying robotization of professional work: Challenges and reflections.
In a Project on robotization of professional work, we investigate how systems of automation, often called robots, are used in professional settings. We are interested in understanding how work practices change, how organizing processes transforms and how expertise evolves between humans and machines. Our investigation aims also at discussing ethical questions in practice, like how responsibility is redistribued between humans and machines, and what are the consequences for organizing and organizations. Studying robots poses a number of challenges: How do we trace robots' actions? How do we keep track of them? Can a robot be shadowed?
In this seminar I will present some initial ideas and findings of this ongoing study as well as some of the methodological challenges of studying robots. I warmly welcome all your ideas!
