What is ‘invisible’ work, and how can it prepare us for the future of work?
Work has become more personal, private, subjective, nomadic and never-ending. We no longer have the certainty of being told exactly what to do and how, and have to rely more on our own resources. As a result, work is moving from observable public spheres into the private and unseen.
John Howkins, in conversation with John Davies, Research Fellow Economics, Nesta, argues that to thrive in the AI-defined era, we will need a mindset of deeply focused thinking and sharing; a process of creativity that combines emotional intelligence and collaboration. Is this invisible work the key to working alongside, rather than being replaced by AI?
