Many people have been talking about AI recently. They are excited, intrigued, and they feel it’s the future of planet Earth. In fact, many people have taken matters into their own hands and have begun learning the subject.
However, many people are on the fence as to whether they should enter the AI field now, or later in the future.
Here are 3 reasons why this is the perfect time to join the AI field:
1) High Demand And Short Supply
The highest in-demand jobs this year are “machine learning engineer” and “deep learning engineer”. Countless business leaders are themselves realizing they can unlock hidden value from their data and take their company to the next level.
Therefore, the demand for AI engineers is growing fast, while the supply is lagging behind. This makes today the best time in history to get in, secure your spot, and accelerate your growth to make yourself indispensable.
2) High Compensation, Even At The Entry Level
Machine learning engineer salaries average over $120,000 per year, even at the entry level. Software engineers may already earn a similar figure, but if they are making a career transition and ‘starting’ in this amazing, growing field, it’s one of the best and most lucrative opportunities in the history of technology.
This figure only grows with skills and experience. Personally, with less than 1 year of learning the most important and powerful skills in AI, I was able to get well over the average compensation, including working remotely.
3) Extremely Meaningful And Satisfying Work
Imagine working on problems that have the potential to impact the planet as a whole. Imagine working in Tesla’s Autopilot team and help make self-driving cars a reality. Imagine working on human-like robots capable of providing outstanding customer service? The possibilities are endless. The common theme is that these AI jobs involve working on exciting problems, developing creative solutions.
Do you get this much satisfaction from your current job? I remember when I would spend most of my day fixing bugs and maintaining legacy code. Now, I enjoy the most deeply satisfying work that always changes and requires constant critical thinking.
There are many more reasons to join the AI field now, but these are some of the most common. For example, will software development itself be automated by AI? Most likely. Recurrent neural networks already exist that have learned to write sensible C++, C#, etc. Could your job be at risk now or in the near future?
