In particular, we welcome own topics in the following subject area:
Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are already entering the professional lives of many employees in a wide variety of fields. Research often focuses on how technology and people can interact effectively and increase job satisfaction and health. We are additionally interested in how the introduction of these new technologies changes the way people work together, what the effects on performance are, and how these technological achievements rank in terms of their effects on the world of work relative to other measures in organizations and companies. So, if you find AI and robotics exciting, want to get involved with experimental or other empirical research, feel free to contact Paul M. Gorny on your own initiative.
