"The US capital is grabbing an outsize share of new jobs that require artificial intelligence skills, as the government and its contractors embrace the emerging technology, according to new research."
"Over the past five years, the capital region surpassed the New York City metro area to become the country’s second-biggest hub of AI jobs — trailing only California. The Golden State, home to Silicon Valley, remains the clear leader with almost one-fifth of all AI job postings in the US, but its share declined in the period."
“An analysis of United States job listings shows AI jobs are growing rapidly outside traditional tech hubs. California hosts the largest concentration, followed by the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. For people who want to make a career in AI, this report contains double good news.”
UMD-LinkUp AI Maps is the world’s first attempt to map the creation of AI jobs. To date, the handful of research papers in academia and industry have used keywords to identify which jobs require AI skills and which do not. Our analysis indicates that this is an extremely flawed approach, with up to 70% false positives. In contrast, we use a fine-tuned large language model (LLM), powered by cutting-edge AI technologies, to differentiate jobs requiring AI skills from others. In short, we use AI to do research on AI.
