Podcast: Shaping technological change
Are the new tools and programs taking away our work? Are we being monitored and measured and therefore losing our self-determination? Sociologist Martin Krzywdzinski, head of the WZB research group Globalization, Work, and Production, advises calmness. In an interview, he explains what is changing as a result of automation and AI and how employees, especially through trade unions, can help shape this process. In the latest edition of the WZB-Mitteilungen podcast, the labor researcher tells hosts Gabriele Kammerer and Kerstin Schneider what he learns in contacts with established companies and startups, why he predominantly perceives openness to technology - and where digitalization gives him cause for concern.
