China's shortage of AI professionals.
For China’s efforts to lead the world in artificial intelligence (AI) to succeed, it will require a growing number of AI scientists and developers. Chinese universities and research institutions are developing training programmes and academic curricula to address a shortage of AI professionals. Efforts to attract foreign professionals are also underway.
- Talent trained in China will join the global workforce, potentially bolstering non-Chinese businesses.
- China will need to make immigration easier and more attractive in order to effectively compete for talent internationally.
- AI talent will be a seller’s market for the foreseeable future, forcing firms to pay more to retain employees.
