People may worry that the robots are coming for their jobs – but the companies that the bots are struggling to find skilled workers, research suggests.
According to an analysis of the jobs of the site, in Fact, there are at least two times as many jobs in the field of artificial intelligence, as there are suitable candidates.
It is said that the number of roles in AI, increased by 485% in the UNITED kingdom from 2014.
Academics say the “massive” skills gap in the systems of education is in part to blame for the lack of it.
In fact he said that the artificial-intelligence industry to benefit from investment in education.
“Our data show that the competition for this shallow pool of candidates is fierce, with the numbers of roles available for overcoming the potential new hires,” he said. Schools solution
In the month of March, a study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers estimated that up to 30% of existing UK jobs could be affected by automation in the next 15 years.
Professor Paul Newman, head of Oxford’s Robotics Institute, has said that the UK was light years away from producing a sufficient amount of people specialised in machine learning, processing, coding and analysis of data to meet the demand.
He told the BBC that the solution should begin in the schools.
“When it comes to the skills gap, which is the equivalent of the reading skill, so use a computer – just like reading is “using” a book,” he said.
“But now reflect on what it means to be skimp on the encoding, which is twice that of writing. That is going to look pretty silly in a decade.”Female talent
Noel Sharkey, emeritus professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at Sheffield University, said that it would be essential to ensure that the engineers have also developed creative skills.
“We need more people to Steam (Science, Technology, Art and Mathematics). We are particularly losing female talent, and the university of numbers for women in computer science are in decline,” he told the BBC.
Mariano Mamertino, an economist, has said that employers in every industry are “keen” to take advantage of THE.
“The IA sector is likely to continue to grow the potential for the widespread application of the technology, in different sectors, it becomes more clear.
“Investing in the education and the skills needed to push the industry forward will be key to its growth in the coming years.”
