Digitalization, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Algorithmic Management (AM) are key and increasingly pervasive technologies in the 21st century. It is going to impact the way people live and work in a significant way. AI/AM raises issues of transparency, accountability and fairness. The ‘human control’ principle refers to when automated decisions have to be – under certain conditions –subject to human review. The conference presentations cover two broad issues. Firstly, speakers intend to illustrate the ‘human control’ approach through various – legal, organisational – experiences. Secondly, new jobs are created through digitalisation (e.g. platform work) but a growing number of people find themselves in vulnerable, often non-standard forms of employment. Technology may not have a significant negative impact on the quantity of jobs available to humans. However, digitalisation implies a redistribution of economic value from those with skills that can be substituted by technology to those with skills that can be complemented by technology.
