With the changing shift towards AI and automation, the jobs in the IT industry are dynamically changing. The future job opportunities will mostly be created in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). 


Industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and CEOs have confirmed that the future of the tech jobs will be in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Most of the tech hubs in the silicon valley are in the race to create the perfect AI technology. Top tech companies are seeking top talent for the jobs in AI. The HR teams of top tech companies are competing to hire the best available talent.


The current scenario in the industry is quite different. There are more unfilled jobs in AI than the available talent. In fact, the IT professional with the skills in AI and machine learning is getting twice the annual salary as compared to the median base pay for full-time employees. The average AI job in the US pays $111,118 per annum while the median base pay for full-time workers is $51,220 per year. 


While AI has received a bad reputation for replacing many traditional jobs, the field is also creating a plethora of high-paying jobs. The top executives from AI-focused divisions of IBM and Microsoft believe that the proliferation of AI will create more jobs for the skilled professionals in the coming years. The tech companies are creating AI-related development tools. A working knowledge of one of these tools itself is good enough for you to land a good job.


Jordan Bitterman, CMO of IBM Watson's content and IoT team said, "AI is going to create all sorts of new jobs. I think it's nothing but upside and exciting for those who know what to do with it." The advancements in the AI itself will lead to many innovations in a variety of industrial sectors, creating more jobs. 


IBM has restructured its hiring strategy to find fresh talent in the field of AI. The recruitment process for AI and machine learning related jobs are more skill-focused than filtering the candidates using traditional hiring process. Glassdoor research suggests that Amazon, Microsoft, and NVIDIA are the top companies to hire a large number of professionals for the AI-related roles.
