Through this research, we will examine the industrial transformation in Bangalore, a megacity with a substantial services-based economy.
Aditi Surie looks at the future of work in Indian cities created by technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Her research is focused on labour platforms to understand their relationship to city economies, existing labour markets and the experience of work. Her work examines how the platform as a mode of economic organisation impacts various scales and experiences of informality, a hallmark of cities of the global South.
Extending this research on informal economies to its impacts on health outcomes, land organisation, and the industrial profile of cities, Surie creates Southern interpretations of the impacts of 4IR technology.
