The Future of Work: Exploring Collaborative Scenarios between Humans and Artificial Intelligence through Speculative Design

September 23, 202309:00 - 12:30Studio

Workshop description

As AI tools like ChatGPT gain increasing potential, experts and workers alike have raised concerns about their impact on job security. While understandable, it’s worth noting that we are still in the early stages of exploring AI’s potential in the workplace. To better understand its implications and impact, we must envision various future scenarios of collaboration between humans and AI.

Speculative design offers an effective way of designing potential futures and exploring the impact of human-AI collaboration in the workplace. This approach helps us create sustainable systems that balance the needs of workers with the benefits of AI.

By exploring different scenarios, we gain a deeper understanding of AI’s potential impact on job roles, identifying areas where it can add value and creating new opportunities for innovation.
Ultimately, the future of work is shaped by our shared vision of what is possible.
Through speculative design tools, we can define a sustainable and equitable future for all.
By embracing the potential of AI and working together, we can create a future where humans and machines collaborate to achieve common goals, supporting each other in pursuit of progress and prosperity.

The purpose of this workshop, lead by Assist Digital, is to:

  1. Familiarise with a speculative design methodology: the Transformation Roadmap;
  2. Deepen and imagine scenarios with the opportunities and values that AI will bring to the work environment;
  3. Create a strategic vision on the possibilities of collaboration between AI and humans: leveraging opportunities and defining positive and negative impacts to be managed, in order to create a sustainable and fair future of work.
