Exploring human-robot cooperation at work: a techno-anthropological investigation of robots working with service staff in hospitals

Project Details


The purpose of this PhD-project is to research how the everyday human-robot collaboration unfolds (and which issues arise) in settings where robots are no longer under surveillance in synthetic laboratory settings, but co-workers collaborating with humans ‘in the wild’. The collaborations will be researched in the context of Danish hospitals, empirical data will be gathered through ethnographic methods and through analysis contribute to the research field of human-robot collaboration.
