The number of job vacancies advertised in Germany in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning have tripled within the space of two years, as evidenced by an analysis carried out by job portal Indeed. Of particular note is that nine out of ten of these jobs are concentrated in five federal states: Bavaria, Baden-Wuerttemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Hesse. “The findings of our analysis show that innovation leaders who invest in such future-oriented topics and grow with them have a particular presence in these states,” says Frank Hensgens, Head of Indeed Germany.
According to the analysis, the largest gap between open positions and applicants can be seen in Hesse: with just one candidate seeking a related position per 2.16 jobs. In Berlin, on the other hand, the number of interested candidates is greater than the number of vacancies advertised: with one interested candidate per 0.61 jobs.
A global survey conducted by European consulting firm Capgemini confirms the fact that AI is creating jobs. 83% of the companies surveyed stated that AI has created new tasks, and therefore new positions in their organization.
