There’s been a lot of discussion and even fear mongering over the potential of A.I. to make millions of jobs and occupations obsolete. Successfully investing in the future, especially for young people, can mean understanding what impact A.I. is likely to have upon society, and above all, the jobs market.
But what about working in the field of A.I. itself? Surely that is one career path that is not only safe from the advances of A.I. (at least until the Singularity), but is destined for an ever increasingly bright future?
For those young enough to consider pursuing a career in Artifical Intelligence, some of the following may be worth considering :
Typical A.I. specialists, including both Ph.D.s fresh out of school and people with less education and just a few years of experience, can be paid from $300,000 to $500,000 a year or more in salary and company stock, according to nine people who work for major tech companies or have entertained job offers from them.
In the entire world, fewer than 10,000 people have the skills necessary to tackle serious artificial intelligence research.
According to a 2016 Markets and Markets Report, The artificial intelligence (AI) market is expected to be worth $16.06 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 62.9% from 2016 to 2022. Several U.S. companies have raised $1 billion dollars or more to fuel artificial intelligence (AI) development.
