Just 13% of Workers Receiving AI Training Despite 2,000% Increase in AI Jobs

The rise of generative AI has created an abundance of opportunities for people who are looking to enter a brand new sector. LLMs are useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up automating a number of manual processes, and this has led to a 2,000% uptick in the number of AI related roles that are being offered to aspiring employees around the world.

This comes from an analysis conducted by Ronstadt which revealed that AI related job postings have increased 20 times over. In spite of the fact that this is the case, present day employees are not receiving all that much AI training with all things having been considered and taken into account. According to this report, only about 13% of workers have been given the chance to get trained in AI related field by their employers which might make it harder for them to hold onto their jobs than might have been the case otherwise.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that employers appear to be more keen on hiring fully trained AI staff rather than investing in training in the employees that they already have. 52% of survey respondents acknowledged that receiving some kind of training in AI related tools will give them the ability to rise up the ranks at their chosen companies, and 53% believe that AI will have an impact regardless of whether or not they learn how to use it.

In the US, 29% of workers are using AI to get the job done, with 42% saying how excited they were about how this will impact the future. Regardless, it is the responsibility of employers to help their workers learn the ropes, otherwise they will end up becoming obsolete. The great replacement of human workers with AI might not be happening quite as soon as many suspected, but it will nevertheless change the shape and face of labor as we know it today if steps aren’t taken.
