Leicester academic speaks at the CIPD Festival of Work

Dr Phoebe V. Moore, Associate Professor in Political Economy and Technology at the University of Leicester's School of Business, will speak at the CIPD Festival of Work on Wednesday 12 June 2019 at the Olympia, London.

A well-known expert and author on workers’ rights and technology, Dr Moore will be speaking about her recently published EU-OSHA report on the highly topical subject of Artificial Intelligence-augmented human resources practices, including people analytics and chatbots. Also later this week, Dr Moore will appear as an invited expert speaker at the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) “Women’s Human Rights in the Changing World of Work” consultation on women’s work in ICTs.

Dr Moore’s talks build on her recent book The Quantified Self in Precarity: Work, Technology and What Counts (Routledge 2018) and article ‘Tracking affective labour for agility in the quantified workplace’, Body & Society (2018). Moore may also touch on two forthcoming articles: ‘The mirror for (artificial) intelligence: In whose reflection?’ which she has written for a Special Issue of the journal Comparative Law and Policy entitled Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Labour Protections; and a co-authored article with Simon Joyce to be published in the Review of International Political Economy on working conditions and management methods in gig work and the platform economy.

The established CIPD Festival will bring together an array of other experts to discuss learning and development and HR software and will this year also add the new dimension of The Future of Work.
