- Conference PaperCSCW and Algorithmic Systems(Proceedings of 20th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, 2022) Lampinen, Airi; Møller, Naja Holten; Sheikh, Riyaz; Ammitzbøll Flügge, Asbjørn; Kaltenhäuser, Kristin; Cakici, BakiThe European Union announced recently that Europe should be a global hub and leader in the development of Artifcial Intelligence (AI) that guarantees safety and fundamental rights (European Commission (2021)). In this workshop, we investigate how we can approach this challenge from the perspective of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Starting with a general conceptual focus on algorithmic systems and their increasing role in society, we are particularly interested in such systems in and as organisations, and the questions that come up when investigating them as part of complex, cooperative work practices. The full-day workshop, designed for up to 20 participants, advances a CSCW-perspective on algorithmic/AI systems by bringing together researchers within (and where possible beyond) the CSCW community who study algorithmic systems, with the aim of sharing ongoing research and connecting participants with others who share their research interests.
- Conference PaperExploring shaping and reshaping of work(Proceedings of 20th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, 2022) Sheikh, RiyazContinuous technological development dominates the discourse around the nature of established and new work practices. It conceptualizes, decides, and designs the present and future of work and workers to conform to the cutting-edge globalized market. Without disavowing the potential and influence of the emerging technologies, this paper documents the intention to explore work practices from the worker’s perspective, particularly considering the economic aspects of their labor, reacting to how the technologies shape work and how it is performed in situ, and how workers interact and collaborate to conduct the work. The discussed research intends to use ethnographic and participatory research methods. It aims to contribute to the related CSCW and HCI discussions by recentering epistemology of technology-determined work around the worker by recognizing the economic positioning of their labor.
