Surge in demand for AI talent
12.13.2017

    The demand for artificial intelligence experts by companies in China has nearly tripled in the third quarter this year from the first quarter last year, recruitment portal zhaopin.com said in a report yesterday.

    The recruitment of AI talent soared 179 percent over the past seven quarters as China’s AI development took off, the report said based on recruitment advertisement posted on the website.

    China’s State Council, or Cabinet, aims to develop a core AI market worth over 150 billion yuan (US$22.66 billion) by 2020, which has encouraged founding of startups as well as investment in technology by large firms, Zhaopin.com said.

    Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen led the demand for AI talent, and a third of such professionals earn between 10,001 yuan and 15,000 yuan per month.
