Opening hours / Beginning:

4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

3 May 2022



In this public lecture, Professor Saonee Sarker will address the humanistic outcomes of technology. How is technology affecting work-life balance? Can it cause stress? And what are the often-overlooked dangers of digitalisation, not least when it comes to sustainability?

Meet Saonee Sarker, Professor of Informatics at LUSEM, in a talk where she asks questions such as: Is digitalisation all good? What are the possible dark sides of the ongoing digitalisation of our workplaces?

Saonee Sarker will take you on a journey, from practical research findings to current challenges. From a humanistic viewpoint, she will put some of these items in the spotlight:

  • How is digitalisation affecting work-life balance?
  • What is technostress? Why do we need to consider it?
  • What are the dangers of AI and the ongoing digitalisation? What challenges do digitalisation pose to sustainability?
