The social construction of technological systems; New directions in the sociology and history of technology

My research interest broadly comes under the area of technology and labour. the ideas of relevant groups, the social construction of technology, hard-core and soft-core AI viewpoints, technology with its own agency gives a wide variety of scopes in analysing the innovations, automation, labour power and human-computer interactions. for example, the social construction of technology as an analytical and methodological framework helps you to understand that it's not a ghost of AI or other innovations that work against the 'interest of labour' but other social and cultural factors such as industrial elites or capitalist is ultimately taking the decision.  The argument stemming from social constructivist approach draws a picture of how technology will be 'behaving' in different social contexts and how it is multi-dimensionally situated in different time, space and culture.
