Digitalization, automation, and AI have been instrumental in transforming the modern workplace, but these advancements have also brought new challenges. The increasing reliance on digital systems has resulted in inefficient work processes, safety risks, and employee stress. However, with better knowledge, development processes, and leadership, organizations can create a future work environment that is both efficient and sustainable.

This is where the online course “Digitalization, Automation, AI and the Future Sustainable Work Environment” comes in. This two-part course will provide participants with the tools and knowledge they need to create a work environment that is both efficient and sustainable. The course will consist of two two-day sessions held on May 3-4, 2023, and May 31-June 1, 2023, and will feature a series of lectures, discussions, and a small individual project. Magdalena Stadin, Åsa Cajander, and Bengt Sandblad will be the main teachers of the course.

Participants will learn about the limitations and challenges of current digital systems and will be encouraged to use material and experiences from their own organizations. The course will also cover best practices and strategies for implementing AI and automation in a healthy, sustainable, and efficient way.

This course is designed for professionals in various industries, including technology, healthcare, education, and finance. It is also recommended as a PhD course worth 5 ECTS credits.
