It’s debatable whether artificial intelligence will create more jobs than it destroys. But the present moment is certainly seeing a bulge in opportunities for humans to wield (or learn) the skills associated with AI and machine learning, and they’re concentrated in just a few countries and specific cities around the world.
One indication of this is some job-ad data mined by UiPath, a company that makes software for robotic process automation (and therefore has skin in the AI game). The company analyzed 30,000 listings on Indeed.com, a leading jobs site. It focused on 15 countries, searching for any jobs that required skill or training in AI or machine learning, or any role in companies that specialized in those things. (UiPath said it accounted for use of local language in searches.)
