Joint Academies project on human enhancement and the future of work

 

Summary:

Report of a joint Academies workshop on ‘Human enhancement and the future of work’ held in March 2012.

 

Although the impact of human enhancement technologies has been widely debated, until now they have not been considered in terms of their impact upon the nature of work. Due to the requirement for multi-disciplinary expertise in addressing this issue, the Academy of Medical Sciences, British Academy, Royal Academy of Engineering and Royal Society came together to host a small policy-focused workshop that brought together policy-makers with leading experts from across engineering, science, social science, the humanities and industry. The workshop summarised technological advancements that could dramatically change how people work over the next decade, and considered the associated opportunities and challenges for all stakeholders.
