Linie 4: Algorithms in the World of Work

 

Granting loans, allocating machines or selecting personnel - companies and other work organisations are increasingly using digital techniques when it comes to making decisions. Fundamental to this are algorithms, i.e. clear rules of action that solve mathematical problems. In the public lecture series Linie 4, organised by the BGHS together with the vhs Bielefeld, Elisa Gensler deals with the challenges and opportunities that the use of algorithms in the world of work can have on employees. In her lecture “I am not a robot" - When algorithms take over decision-making processes in the world of work”, she asks about the importance that algorithms already have for work processes and the effects on the self-determination of employees when algorithms shape decisions or even take them away from them completely.

Elisa Gensler has been working as a research assistant at the Research Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) and in the research area “Technical and Social Change” at the Faculty of Sociology at Bielefeld University since 2019. Since 2019, she has also been a doctoral researcher in the interdisciplinary NRW Research College „Gestaltung von flexiblen Arbeitswelten (Arbeit 4.0)“ (Design of Flexible Working Environments (Work 4.0)) and in the BGHS. She is doing her doctorate on the topic of „Die Gestaltung und Bewertung algorithmischer Steuerung und Kontrolle in Arbeitsorganisationen und ihre Auswirkungen auf die Arbeitsautonomie von Beschäftigten“ (The design and evaluation of algorithmic management and control in work organisations and its impact on employees’ work autonomy). She studied sociology at the universities of Bamberg and Bielefeld.

The lecture will take place on Monday, 13 June 2022 at 6.15 pm in the Murnau-Saal at the vhs Bielefeld, Ravensberger Park 1. The event will be held in German
