ABRI Seminar Researching Work and Occupations in Organisations - 7 October
This interactive seminar will broadly focus on organisational research on work and occupations. In specific, in the seminar both research methods and empirical cases will be discussed. Questions that might come across are: “how do we collect data about occupations in the workplace?”, “what are recent developments in the field of occupations (such as digital innovation, new collaborations), and how can we best study these developments?” And “what can we learn from the theory so far about occupations and work?”. In the seminar various occupations and work domains will be discussed, with a specific focus on knowledge workers and creatives. The seminar is organised in the light of the PhD Defence of Natalja Laurey on the 8th of October, which is on ‘Design meets business: the changing work and occupations of creatives’.Speakers: Professor Beth Bechky, Professor Ruthanne Huising and Associate professor Maura Soekijad.

KINTalk: The impact of AI on work: predictive policing - 11 October

This KINTalk edition is part of Amsterdam eWeek, which is an international festival that brings more than 25.000 professionals to Amsterdam annually for a week of cutting-edge events related to e-business, digital media, online marketing, e-commerce, and technology. 

During this KINTalk, two inspiring speakers will talk about the impact of Artificial Intelligence on our work. The presentations promise to be creative and thought-provoking, sparking a conversation that we continue afterwards with drinks. Dick Willems, a data scientist at the Dutch Police and the creator of the predictive policing algorithm “CAS” will elaborate on the process of designing, further developing and implementing algorithmic technologies. Professor Marleen Huysman, director of the KIN Center for Digital Innovation, will build on the many rich cases from her embedded research to debunk frequently occurring biases related to the impact of AI in organisation to ultimately arrive at a more productive perspective on the (im)possibilities of AI.

Sign-up for the event here.
