CRIMT joins OBVIA and HEC Montréal for this workshop entitled How Algorithms and Robots are Affecting Work in Amazon Warehouses.
Dr. Alessandro Delfanti researches labour and technology, the politics of digital media, and digital countercultures. He recently published a book titled The Warehouse: Humans and Robots at Amazon, which addresses the relation between living labour and technology at the e-commerce giant. He also organized the international conference Log Out! Worker Resistance Within and Against the Platform Economy. Another research focus is the role of robots in re-organizing the labour process. In his previous work, he has theorized the relation between hacking and digital capitalism.
Held on October 4th from 12:00 to 1:30 pm, the workshop will be held in person as well as online.
In person: room Marie-Husny at HEC (1st floor – green section)
