Future Work Lab 2.0. Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing Work of the Future
Our working world is in a state of upheaval. The Internet and mobile technologies are fundamentally changing the way we live and work. Industrie 4.0 and the Digital Transformation are relevant drivers for the development of our whole society. Even new digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and machine learning have a big footprint. The goal of the Future Work Lab 2.0 is to operate and develop a unique innovation laboratory for work, people and technology at the Stuttgart location. A Demonstrator World with more than 50 demonstrators showcasing manufacturing work of tomorrow makes new possibilities of digitalization and automation possibilities in the core areas of industrial work transparent. A Learning World serves to raise awareness, qualification and social dialog. An Ideas World provides a platform for national and international advanced research and academic discussion of changes in industrial work. The present paper describes the aims and the status of the German BMBF-funded project.
