This thesis explores the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on human work. It consists of three essays that investigate the influence of exposure to AI on creative work, the interaction between an algorithm's prescriptive authority and human uniqueness beliefs, and how humanness perceptions are established in opposition to AI. In the first essay, I show that exposure to AI impacts creative work differently than non-creative work, and that creative effort increases only when a schema violation event takes place. In the second essay, I propose a theoretical distinction between a prescriptive and a suggestive algorithm and find that in high human uniqueness contexts, people are as reluctant and critical of algorithmic suggestions as they are of prescriptions. In the third essay I develop the concept of situated humanness that recognizes the dynamic and contextually determined qualities that differentiate humans from AI and discussed its implications for organizational processes and outcomes. Overall, this thesis contributes to the understanding of how people interact and collaborate with AI in organizational settings, highlighting the importance of context and perceptions in shaping these interactions.
