Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
Understanding how constantly evolving technologies are actively shaping the lives of workers and how people in turn can shape those technologies, especially in the world of work.
The future of work at the human-technology frontier will bring together NSF research communities to conduct basic scientific research on the interaction of humans, society, and technology that will help shape the future of work to increase opportunities for workers and productivity for the American economy.
Four research themes:
- Building the human-technology partnership
- Augmenting human performance
- Illuminating the socio-technological landscape
- Fostering lifelong learning.
- Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
- Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Core Research (FW-HTF)
