Disclaimer: what you are about to read, was thought and typed by a real human.
Yes, AI makes our lives easier, but at what cost? We demand a human-centric AI, to be enshrined in regulations and put into practice on the work floor.

The rapid advancement of AI technology has left even its foremost developers pondering the future and raised important questions: What lies beyond it, and how will it reshape our jobs? To get an answer, we joined forces with our Nordic partners on a Digital Programme focused on investigating AI in the workplace. We are now actively engaging with workers to understand their experiences with algorithmic management while analysing the diverse ways in which various industries implement automated management systems to oversee their workforce.

As workers, it’s imperative that we advocate for transparency in the algorithms that dictate our tasks and evaluate our performance.

21 September – Stockholm, Sweden
This public launch of the FEPS-Nordics Digital Programme on Algorithmic Management and Workers’ Rights will bring together researchers, policymakers, trade unionists and other stakeholders
from the Nordic countries and beyond to discuss the effects of digital tech on the nature of work itself across the labour market.
Check the latest Progressive Post’s dossier on the topic.

The fear that an unchecked arms race in AI development could wreak havoc on society is looming large.

More than one year and a half after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, when emotional fatigue and disengagement may start showing up, FEPS invites you to get stimulus for an informed debate about Ukraine’s future in Europe.

This November, snap elections are scheduled in the Netherlands. For these polls, the Dutch Social Democrats (PvdA) have decided to present a common list and platform with GroenLinks (GreenLeft).
This article, written with the co-authorship of Ties Huis in ‘t Veld, the international secretary of the PvdA, provides an explanation for that political choice. Read more.
