Digitalisation in the workplace covers a variety of digital technologies and fast-developing applications, ranging from digital communication and information tools (ICT) to robots and artificial intelligence (AI).
The increasing integration of innovative digital technologies both in the private and public sectors is essential for the resilience and competitiveness of the EU economy. However, widespread adoption of new technologies, such as AI will result in significant changes in the way we perform our jobs. While not all changes will be negative, the effects will be wide ranging.
To address important ethical and legal challenges millions of workers already face around Europe today, this project aims to look at different technologies at the workplace highlighting the relevance and value of the workers’ perspective in digital transformation.
The aim of this project is to gather data about existing collective agreements that provide clauses related to AI at work (e.g. on data protection, monitoring, algorithmic management etc.).
