The rapid development of AI smart devices and technology enables people to work anytime and anywhere. In the past, people were required to work in cubicle where desktop computers were now laptops and mobile devices allow us to work remotely and access necessary files over the cloud storage. Our workplace has been transformed into activity-based and dynamic working environment that adapts to different work modes and agile working activities. This dynamic working style is advocated by “Activity Based Working (ABW)”.
