Our Head of Training Services, Phaedra Gibson, attended the Maritime Autonomous Systems Regulatory round table event on Wednesday 15 January. Chaired by the Royal Academy of Engineering, the working group attempted to understand the ethical use of autonomy and the challenges organisations will face with its adoption in the transport sector. It looked at the current drivers for change and the possible differences between transport modes for safe and ethical adoption of this new technology.
Human machine teaming is of great interest to Governments and to industries where people will work with autonomous systems and other forms of AI to complete tasks and share workload.
On the topic Phaedra said:
“The rapid development of technology will have a huge impact on the workforce. The way people interact with artificial intelligence in its various forms will go beyond what we have experienced today. Humans will be teamed with technology to share workload and complete tasks across the transport sector.” She adds, “The way these future teams work together needs to be better understood and discussing strategies for training is a key consideration when developing the technology”.
We offer training services to help organisations to adapt to rapid changes in technology. Our services draw on the expertise of training consultants, human factors experts, technologists and psychologists.
Phaedra will be presenting a paper on the topic of Human Machine Teaming at this year’s ITEC event 28-30 April.
