As AI continues to permeate every aspect of our economy, it is important to track the AI leader in each industry:
- Facebook AI Research (FAIR), led by Turing Award winner (and NYU Professor), Yann LeCun, has been dominating the market in attracting AI skills.
- Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, and Netflix used to employ an outsize share of AI skills but have been growing these skills more slowly in recent years. Whereas, Facebook, Google, and Amazon have accelerated their hiring in AI.
- AI skills are becoming important in industries outside of pure technology. Companies like Lockheed Martin, Merck, JLL, Goldman Sachs, and ExxonMobil employ a significant and growing number of AI engineers.
