Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


Juani Swart, Professor in Human Capital Management and David Cross, Research Associate at University of Bath School of Management conclude this report with a look towards the future and how changing technology might cause us to re-evaluate what we think about work. They ask the big questions about the future of work – might AI and automation replace human labour for many or most tasks? Will there be any obligation for humans to work at all? Or are there still aspects of human work that are worth valuing and preserving in such a world?
