Organisations are increasingly deploying AI technologies to run their everyday business. This technological shift is creating a new workplace where changes are occurring as to how humans interact, perform, and make decisions at work. But what do we really know about this from a scientific perspective? In this two-week course, we will dive deep into social scientific and evidence-based research to unpack how intelligent technology is impacting human experiences and outcomes in the organisational context. We explore the opportunities and challenges of using AI in organisations to better situate ourselves in a rapidly changing world
