This week we announced a groundbreaking tool for job data research: UMD-LinkUp AI Maps, the world’s first tool for measuring and visualizing the creation of jobs requiring artificial intelligence skills.
The interactive map allows users to track the creation of U.S. based AI jobs each month; rank states by their share of those jobs; do a deeper dive across economic sectors, metropolitan areas, and counties; and determine a region’s AI Intensity: the ratio of its AI jobs to all other postings.
Combining academic rigor from the University of Maryland Smith School of Business, highly accurate job market data from LinkUp, and expertise in AI methodologies from Outrigger Group, UMD-LinkUp AI Maps empowers users as they navigate the question on everybody’s mind: how will AI change the world of work.
A new white paper, From West to the Rest, leverages the AI Map to track growth and dispersion of artificial intelligence jobs over the last five years. It shows that AI standard-bearers like California and Washington have ceded some of their dominance to emerging AI hot zones like the DC metro area and Texas. We’ve known the AI playing field is shifting and growing like never before; now, for the first time, we can see it happening in living color.
Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we release key findings from the paper and dive into a brave new world of job market research. And in the meantime, check out reporting on early findings of our AI maps tool by Bloomberg and The Financial Post.
