about this item

Experimentation with new forms of mechanization dominates the agenda around work and productivity, and wearable and self-tracking technologies (WSTT) are increasingly introduced into workplaces. What are the consequences of this trend? Is surveillance and monitoring of productivity and work an increasingly corporeal technique? Does WSTT transform the very nature of work, productivity, and employability? This book explores the ethical implications around management surveillance, the potential usage of big data produced by self-quantified technologies and the possibilities for worker organization mediated by these technologies in a radical sense.
