$7 – $25

with editors Phoebe V. Moore and Jamie Woodcock

and three working guests who work at jobs being altered by the Interpretation Machines of Artificial Intelligence

Augmented Exploitation explores the reality of the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on workers’ lives. Going beyond platform work and the gig economy, the authors explore emerging forms of algorithmic governance and AI-augmented apps that have been developed to utilize innovative ways to collect data about workers and consumers, as well as to keep wages and worker representation under control.

Going beyond platform work and the gig economy, the authors explore emerging forms of algorithmic governance and AI-augmented apps that have been developed to utilise innovative ways to collect data about workers and consumers, as well as to keep wages and worker representation under control. They also show that workers are not taking this lying down, providing case studies of new and exciting form of resistance that are springing up across the globe.
