#AI Is So Hot, Even Freelancers Are in Demand -- ADTmag

  • One might not normally equate AI development — which can involve complicated, cutting-edge technologies such as cognitive computing, machine learning, deep learning and so on in long-term initiatives — as something suitable for freelance projects, but news from freelancing firm Upwork indicates that’s the case.
  • Upwork, which matches employers with freelancers, published data from its Web site that showed AI was the second-fastest-growing in-demand skill in the first quarter of the year.
  • But, among development-related skills, AI is No. 1, followed by skills such as natural language processing, C++ development, Swift development and others, with the AI-related machine learning skill also making the top 20 list.
  • “With artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront of the conversation around what the future of work holds, it’s no surprise it is the fastest-growing tech skill and the second fastest-growing skill overall,” Upwork said in a statement last week.
  • Perhaps surprisingly, that pervasiveness didn’t show up in Upwork’s previous listing of in-demand skills for the third quarter of 2016, in which AI didn’t even place in the top 20 (though machine learning was No. 1):

Artificial intelligence is such a hot topic in software development that companies are even seeking freelancers to help out, making it the No 1. sought-after tech skill in Upwork’s latest quarterly report.
