Ai translator being hired by UK's biggest defence firm to speak to humans and machines

THE UK’s biggest defence firm is hiring an “AI translator” to start in 2040.

BAE Systems has used current tech trends to predict jobs that will exist in the 2030s and onwards.
These include scientists who can organically grow computers and interpreters who will be the middleman between humans and machine.
It follows research by the defence firm that found 47% of career-savvy Generation Z (16 to 24-year-olds) expect to work in industries which don’t exist yet.
BAE Systems have profiled three roles in science and tech which are due to become prominent in the coming decades.
“Our apprenticeship programmes combine the opportunity to study with hands-on training, allowing our apprentices to get a great grounding in engineering and technology while learning about the practical applications and challenges. We are working hard to ensure this grounding creates the technology leaders of the future.”
As human-robotic working, known as “cobotics”, become more intertwined, the AI Translator will be responsible for training both the human and the AI assistant.
This will help them develop an effective “teaming” relationship.
It will also involve tuning the assistant and tailoring it to the individual human worker’s needs.
The translator will also be watching out for and correcting any machine or human errors.

Dr Rhys Morgan, Director, Education and Engineering at the Royal Academy of Engineering, said: “It’s a really exciting time for emerging technologies in engineering. It’s crucial young people develop the skills that will be needed to accelerate this industry change in the coming decades. There are a variety of roles in engineering – and a huge range of possibilities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers - which will be available in the sector in the near future.
“Preparing for the STEM careers of the future can only be beneficial for today’s school leavers and apprentices. While working with AI and wearables may not be commonplace at the moment, it’s fair to say that in 20 or 30 years’ time the UK will need engineers who are well-versed in these technologies.”
