The fifth episode in our series of Digital Workplace Impact podcasts covers the rise of the ‘roboboss’.

In a world where robots are no longer just the preserve of the manufacturing line, developments in AI mean that some people find themselves being managed by a roboboss, whether they realize it or not. Could you work for a roboboss?

Our latest guest didn’t just ponder this question, he went in search of the answer by working for Uber, alongside his day job. Meet Dan O’Hara, SVP Digital Workplace at Avanade, who talks to Paul Miller about his experience as an Uber driver and what it was like to be hired, trained, directed and rewarded by a roboboss.

Follow the discussion as they explore when an algorithm is preferable to a human, the future for robots and where that leaves us mere mortals.
