According Tara Sinclair, economist and senior fellow at Indeed, the demand for such roles have outpaced that of the US, Canada and Australia. She says : “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.”

The problem is, the UK is currently suffering from a widespread skills gap in technology generally, especially in specialist fields such as Ai.

Sinclair added “AI jobs are not for everyone as they require highly specialised skills… So it is essential that post-Brexit Britain retains the ability to attract the global talent it needs to keep its AI sector in pole position.”

Ai and Machine Learning are fields that are still growing and very Fascinating, Its definitely a field we recommend you young up and coming professionals in the technology field to look into.
