About the report
It is no longer news that society in general, and working life in particular, has fundamentally changed due to intensive digitalisation, increased use of robots and the development of artificial intelligence (AI). The question now is what we know about the impact of these changes on the work environment for various professional groups and for people of different genders and ages. What does it mean when your “closest colleague” is a robot? How do we experience our daily interaction with AI in our workplaces?
To find answers to these and a number of other questions in existing research, the Swedish Agency for Work Environment Expertise in early 2020 initiated this literature review on artificial intelligence, robotisation and the work environment.
