About this book


This innovative book considers the positive and negative impact of wearable technologies on organization and work. First discussing the development and use of this software within the workspace, the author highlights potential issues such as privacy, addiction and lack of work efficiency. Technology has had a major impact on workspace and workforce, and the second section explores how it has emerged as a key driver of collaboration, and what the shortfalls are in terms of autonomy, solidarity and authenticity. Cloud technology, mobile technology, collaboration apps, the Internet of Things, and highly specialized AI bear the promise of a radical enhancement of the way we work and interact. This book discusses the potential future scenarios for wearable technologies in the context of the IoT and as a social and organizational phenomenon.
