Description & Coverage
Description:

In mainstream media, there has been wide discussion on what the world will look like when the artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics incursions into traditional human work result in fewer jobs in manufacturing, service industries, and other domains. Turning to automation is a practical endeavor for corporations because of the efficiencies and increased performance it fosters, but these changes have a major impact on humanity. The resulting lack of work has been linked to social ills and human failure to thrive.

Maintaining Social Well-Being and Meaningful Work in a Highly Automated Job Market is a pivotal reference source that explores how the world will re-shape as one with less demand for human labor and how to potentially balance how people engage as part-workers and as consumers of others’ creations. Additionally, the book looks at how people will co-create meaningful lives at micro, meso, and macro levels. While highlighting topics such as mobile technology, positive psychological capital, and human capital, this book is ideally designed for technologists, AI designers, robotics designers, policymakers, social engineers, CIOs, politicians, executives, economists, researchers, and students.

Reviews & Statements

"The book touches a very topical issue area of research and practice: The impact of digitalization, automation and robotics to employment both in terms of quantity and quality. The individual chapters look at the topic mostly from the point of view of individuals facing the challenge of diminishing and transformed opportunities of work in the technology-laden future, stretching the view partly also to societal processes and implications."

– Dr. Juha Saukkonen, JAMK University of Applied Sciences, Finland
