Abstract [en]

With an increase in alternative forms of work, people are no longer limited to traditional office spaces. The aim for a healthier integration of private and work comes with the advantages of experimenting with new technologies. As a result, coworking spaces are spreading through the urban centers. But our way of dealing with work is still marked by our corporate-focused past.

This project aims to explore how can co-working spaces occupy a more meaningful role by connecting people with their interests. My interest is to unveil the social rules of the space and turn interactions between coworkers more pleasant and easy.

The result is a reflection about the future of collaborative workplaces. The success of the experiments reflect the openness of most co-workers and hosts. On a higher level the project gave me a better understanding of how AI could help to improve the social aspect of our workplaces.
