Aarni Tuomi, Ph.D., is a social scientist working at the intersection of emerging technology, experience design and service business. He works as Senior Lecturer at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, Finland, where he leads two R&D projects: “AlgoAmmatti”, which explores the notions of algorithmic management, algoactivism and professional growth on digital labour platforms, and “HomeOpera”, which aims to develop new extended reality concepts for the elderly to enjoy holistic and social cultural experiences at home. He’s enthusiastic about building human-centered technology, and drawing on his previous work on human-robot interaction and AI ethics, he’s keen to better understand how technology can enhance and enable rather than reduce the human touch.
