Towards A Desired Future of Work: Job Design for Human-AI Partnerships



1:00pm - 2:00pm ET

Rm 007, ECSC (Design Loft)

Job design is the process of creating a job that enables an organization to achieve its goals while motivating and rewarding the employee. Artificial Intelligence has the potential to both positively and negatively affect people's autonomy, job feedback, skill use and variety, and job significance with consequences for people's well-being and performance. To create a desirable future of work, we need to create interdisciplinary design teams of job designers, experience designers, and Al designers.

During this interactive workshop, we will explore how to jointly optimize Human-Al partnerships through contextual inquiry and iterative testing.
