Changing Nature of Knowledge Work with Disrupting Technologies

 
Mini-Track Chair: Professor Xi Zhang (Jacky), Tianjin University (TJU), PR China  IKMAP 2020 Changing Nature of Knowledge Work with Disrupting Technologies With more and more technological developments taking place, disrupting technologies (big data, AI, robots, blockchain) are deeply impacting the nature of knowledge work. For example, MIT media lab published an article in Nature (2019) that proposed a new research field called "machine behavior", and claims new relationships between "disrupting technologies (DT)" and "human behavior", i.e., DT triggers new human behaviors, human impact on DT systems or DT-human joint behaviors. In this track, we focus on how DT changes the nature of knowledge and innovative work. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
  • Impact of DT (e.g., big data, AI, robots, blockchain) on knowledge work
  • Knowledge and learning perspectives of DT
  • New practices of industries on changing nature of knowledge work by designing DT systems
  • Knowledge work at human-machine collaborative environment
  • Knowledge creation and evolution at DT systems
