Interesting news for those deciding what route to take for future careers….

People may worry that robots are coming for their jobs – but the companies making the bots are struggling to find qualified employees, reports the BBC.

According to analysis from jobs site Indeed, there are at least twice as many jobs in artificial intelligence (AI) as there are suitable applicants.

The number of roles in AI has risen by 485% in the UK since 2014. Mariano Mamertino, an economist at Indeed, said employers in every sector were keen to take advantage of AI: “The AI sector is likely to keep growing as the potential for the widespread application of the technology, across different industries, becomes clearer. Investing in education and the right skills needed to propel the industry forward will be key to its growth in the coming years.”
