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. The series will conclude with a workshop hosted by Bose and UMass in Framingham, MA on Nov. 13, 2019.
Participants at UC San Diego 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
