According to Indeed, Imperial College London is the nation’s most active artificial intelligence (AI) job creator.
One in every 13 AI vacancies (7.4%) listed on Indeed’s UK site in the last year's time was from Imperial, though other major educational facilities were also recruiting well. Four out of the top six recruiters of AI experts in the UK are universities, with Oxford, Cambridge and University College London all fighting tooth and nail for exemplary candidates.
Shawn Bose, General Manager at Indeed Prime commented: “Artificial intelligence sits at the heart of Britain’s tech boom, and the UK has emerged as a world leader in the creation of both AI technology and jobs.
“It’s striking how many AI jobs are being created by universities. With AI technology still in its infancy, academic researchers are racing to discover its full potential. Just as the genesis of Silicon Valley came when the worlds of scientific research and business collided at California’s Stanford University, we could be seeing a similar pattern beginning to emerge with AI in the UK.
“The combination of high salaries and the chance to develop transformative technology continues to attract some of the brightest and best professionals to careers in AI. While automation will inevitably change the world of work beyond recognition, for now the AI technology behind it is creating thousands of job opportunities for highly skilled, and therefore well paid, individuals.”
