Webinar, Thursday, 4 March 2021, 09:00 – 12:00 (CET)

AI could complement the productivity, value and skill of human workers, and relieve them from tedious and dangerous tasks. But this will not happen automatically. In fact, till now, the computer revolution has seen a decline in bargaining power of labour, increasing job precariousness, and pressure on labour and fundamental rights, from collective bargaining, to data protection and fair treatment in the workplace.

The first panel looked at the bigger picture. How can the EU ensure that AI will complement human labour, and avoid aggravating inequalities (regional, skills-biased, income)? What role can collective bargaining and social partners play? To what extent should regulation of AI address these issues?

The second panel looked at AI in the workplace. With the covid-19 pandemic, the use of algorithmic management and digital surveillance of workers is accelerating. What are the risks, in terms of worker autonomy, equal treatment and collective rights? What policies do we need to accompany this transition?
