AI in Manufacturing: Worker Survey

EU-Japan.AI Survey of Manufacturing Workers’ Attitudes to AI


AI is one of the pillars of Industry 4.0. After sixty years of ‘being just ten years away’, it has finally broken through to mainstream application. There have been many business news and academic surveys on the expectations of management in manufacturing regarding the potential applications of AI in factories. The understanding of workers where AI is being, or may be, deployed, and the potential consequences for their employment situation, has rarely been studied. The EU-Japan.AI project is running a survey aimed at workers in the EU and Japan to begin to remedy this. The survey is available in English, Japanese, German, Greek, Slovenian and Spanish.

The EU-Japan.AI project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement No 957339 and the planned duration is 22 months (01/2021 – 10/2022).
