Professor Martin Upchurch introduces this seminar on digital labour, robotics and AI

This Interdisciplinary Labour Studies Seminar will be introduced by Professor Martin Upchurch, Professor of Human Resource Management at Middlesex University.

The presentation will be framed by an historical overview of technology at work, and the question 'Is digitalisation different'?' will be examined. In posing the question the speaker will critically assess theoretical frameworks which suggest that digital labour is free or immaterial, and that advances in robotics and AI (Artificial Intelligence) herald the threshold of technological singularity.
