Let’s Invent Job Titles
December 1st, 2015 | Rachel Tepper, Operations Manager
It’s safe to say that technology is advancing so fast that the future will have jobs that don’t exist today. Which is why it’s fun to dream a little bit about what might be on your not-too-distant resume.
Artificial Intelligence Psychologist. Will code cheer up your sad computer or will it need a personal touch to talk through difficult issues?
Space Trash Engineer. Along with hundreds of satellites in orbit, there are countless bits of debris in orbit left from decades of satellite launches. Even if it’s only the size of a pea, the bullet-like speed of space trash makes going for a spacewalk a little more dangerous. Which is why someone—or someone managing something—will need to collect it or eliminate it to make orbit a semi-safe place once again.
Exoskeleton Designer. Imagine firefighters lifting 1000 lbs with ease and police officers sprinting at 40 miles an hour. While our muscles will never be that strong, our muscles with the aid of a robotic exoskeleton can get the job done with ease.
Nano Technician. Nano technology operates on a microscopic scale. Robots no larger than blood cells may help keep your arteries stay squeaky clean or repair damage to a torn tendon from the inside without surgery. So who keeps all these little machines in tip-top shape? Your friendly, neighborhood nano technician.
Virtual Experience Designer. Let’s say you want to parachute from space, land on top of Mt. Everest and ski all the way down to the bottom. It’s a deadly idea, but it could be made safe when it’s done through a virtual experience.
