The boom in artificial intelligence (AI) is bringing about a host of new roles. New skills are actively being enlisted by start-ups to design, develop and program AI. These will be the top 5 roles in AI by 2020… if not before!
AI Data Developer
The role: they use the collected data to feed, ‘teach’ and improve the AI. They understand AI programming languages and are experts in machine and deep learning. They help data scientists to create apps and AI interfaces.
Cognitive or AI Engineer
The role: they create software and apps that are capable of solving complex problems and reasoning with near-human logic. The goal? Use this intelligence to support people in their business activities (e.g. robotisation of tasks, automation of industrial processes) or leisure pursuits.
The role: they are responsible for the ethical dimension of artificial intelligence. They design the algorithmic rules to ensure the AI, in the way it learns, respects the fundamental values and principles of human rights (freedom, responsibility, diversity etc).
The role: they design the personality traits for the AI to help it learn and collaborate better with humans. The end goal is to make it more human-centric. In French, this role is known as a “psydesigner”.
The role: they write the script that matches the personality traits of the AI. They model the profile established by the pseudo-designer – behaviour, vocabulary, rhythm patterns, relational elements – to create the right emotion. A little bit like a screenwriter. In French, this role is known as an “egoteller”.
In France, 5,300 researchers are already working on AI in 268 public and private research teams, according to a report by the #FranceIA published in early 2018.
So will you be recruiting a researcher in AI or machine/deep learning soon?
