En attendant les robots

23/05/2019

Who, or what, is hiding behind “clicks”? At a time when the disappearance of work seems irreversible, it would be fair to assume artificial intelligence. Not so, according to the author. All over the world, whether in India, Madagascar, Kenya or the Philippines, “click workers” number in their millions. Their job is sim- ple: to create clicks. They click on images, create standard profiles, identify, chew through and digest information for large companies, to increase their visibility. In the digital revolution, there will not be a major replacement of workers, but a greater precariousness of work. This book analyses and deconstructs an omnipres- ent anxiety-provoking approach to the disappearance of work. “Digital Labour” workers in click farms scattered around the world and producers of information flows are recruited online and are outside any jurisdiction due to their invisibility. An interesting examination of the ins and outs of work automation.
