Join us in Framingham, MA at the Bose Corporation to discuss the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier. Because of its potential to dramatically affect all aspects of our lives, this topic is receiving significant attention and generating new initiatives, programs, and investments across all sectors.
This NSF supported workshop is the sixth in a series of Listening Sessions which will gather academic and corporate input on this timely issue. Participants in this regional event will consider research topics and identify areas where university-industry collaborations will yield the most meaningful results.
Topics to be discussed:
- Building Human-Technology Partnership
- Augmenting Human Performance
- Illuminating the Socio-Technological Landscape
- Fostering Lifelong Learning

Countries, companies, and universities around the world are exploring the Future of Work and its implications. In recognition of this topic’s importance, the NSF incorporated Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF) into its 10 Big Ideas. The 10 Big Ideas were developed to answer important societal problems while building a related trans-disciplinary portfolio of research over the next decade. The FW-HTF seeks to increase understanding of how constantly-evolving technologies are shaping the lives of workers and how people can shape those technologies. This event series will support these efforts by bringing together change-agents, leaders, practitioners, and scholars to consider the interaction of humans, society, and technology, and how they will ultimately increase opportunities for productivity.
Participants at this workshop will evaluate the research and commercialization opportunities associated with building the human-technology partnership and augmenting human performance. A deep dive will allow participants to gain a greater understanding of how to research these topics, and transition into practical applications and use. The outcome of this series will be an actionable set of recommendations for the organizations represented at each event.
