UK AI sector booming
(2 minutes to read)
Umbrella company contractors working within AI will be pleased to hear that the UK is seeing considerable growth in the sector.
As a direct result of this, more hiring within the industry is expected, with demand for these roles having almost tripled over the last three years.
According to the findings from Indeed, the UK currently has significantly more job opportunities than the United States, Canada and Australia.
Tara Sinclair, economist and senior fellow at Indeed, commented, “From both a jobs and a society perspective, AI is a technology that has the potential to be truly transformative. While the jury is still out on how many existing roles could be made redundant as AI becomes more widespread, or whether its potential for job creation outweighs any losses, in the short-term AI is providing a shot in the arm to Britain’s jobs market.
“A number of companies are exploring how AI might be used to boost their bottom line, while also holding out the prospect of previously undreamt of technology that could one day excite and delight millions of people.
“Britain’s reputation as a tech leader has made it a natural home for the booming AI sector, and the UK’s concentration of AI jobs has risen steadily – and now outstrips that in the other major English-speaking countries.
“AI jobs are not for everyone, as they require highly specialised skills. So it’s essential that post-Brexit Britain retains the ability to attract the global talent it needs to keep its AI sector in pole position.”
