APPG for the Future of Work launch inquiry into ‘AI and Surveillance in the Workplace’

On May 18th the APPG for the Future of Work launch their inquiry into ‘AI and Surveillance in the Workplace’ in partnership with IFOW as secretariat.

The panel for the first session included IFOW’s own Dr Abigail Gilbert, the TUC’s Mary Towers who discussed the TUC’s work on AI and writer and journalist James Bloodworth author of ‘Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain’.

We explored how artificial intelligence and ‘surveillance’ technologies are changing the nature, experience and quality of work from the perspective of the people doing it. Inquiry Chairs David Davis MP and Clive Lewis MP wrote in the Times about the launch of the inquiry, citing key findings from the Amazonian Era.

The second inquiry session will take place on the 8th June and will examine how the law applies to surveillance and AI in the workplace.
