I am from the Just Algorithms Action Group. We are a non profit membership organisation. We are looking at building a project about the (mis)use of Technology in the workplace (e.g algorithmic management tools, AI etc). There has been an exponential rise in surveillance and monitoring of workers during the lockdown that has prompted many unions and academics to share their concerns.
Many (JAAG included) are advocating for better employee involvement throughout the life cycle of technologies deployed in the workplace. I thought it would be great to hear from cooperative technologist on this topic.
I would love to gather your insight and experience both as employees and as tech developers on best practices for ethical tech and on collaborative work.
Please get in touch if you are interested or would like more information.
