People may worry that the robots are coming for their work, but the companies that make the bots have a difficult time finding qualified employees, the research suggests.
According to the analysis of the jobs website Indeed, there are at least two times more jobs in the artificial intelligence as there are suitable candidates.
It is said that the number of roles in the IA has increased 485% in the united KINGDOM since 2014.
Academics say that the “massive” skills gap in the education systems is in part to blame for the lack.
Felt that the artificial intelligence sector would be to the advantage of the investment in education.
“Our data show that competition for this shallow part of the pool of candidates is fierce, with the number of roles available, ahead of the potential new recruits,” he said. The schools solution
In March, a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers estimated that up to 30% of the existing UK jobs could be affected by automation in the next 15 years.
Professor Paul Newman, head of Oxford’s Robotics Institute, said that the UK was light years away from producing enough qualified people in the machine learning, computer science, 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 AI, lack of skills, the equivalent of the reading is of computer skills, so using a computer, just like reading is “using” a book,” he said.
“But now reflect on what it means to be skimping on the encoding, which is double the size of the writing. That’s going to be pretty beast in a decade’s time.”Female talent
Noel Sharkey, emeritus professor of AI and robotics at the University of Sheffield, said that it would be essential to ensure engineers have also developed creative skills.
“We need more people in the Steam (Science, Technology, Arts and Mathematics). We are particularly missing out on the talents of women, and the university of numbers for women in computer science are on the decline,” he told the BBC.
Mariano Mamertino, an economist, in Fact, employers in all sectors have been “keen” to take advantage of the AI.
“The AI sector is likely to continue to increase the potential for the widespread application of the technology, in different sectors, is becoming increasingly clear.
“Investing in the education and the skills needed to propel the industry will be the key to growth in the years to come.”
