The AI job ads research also showed states with the highest number of remote jobs. The state with the most remote jobs is California (148), followed by New York (89). Texas (76), Massachusetts, (39), and Virginia (31).
Furthermore, the findings revealed US states that currently offer the most entry-level jobs in AI. With California leading again (351), followed by Massachusetts (126), New York (113), Virginia (110) and Washington (84).
However, the data also showed states with fewest AI jobs. These are Alaska, which is also the only state with zero AI job ads, Mississippi (2) and South Dakota (4).
Brendon Thomson, spokesperson for Poker.org commented: “Our research confirmed that AI jobs are growing fast, with thousands of new AI careers popping up around the country.
“It was great to see that not all artificial intelligence jobs, that are currently being advertised, are mid or senior level, but there are plenty of opportunities for AI enthusiasts to join the industry through an entry-level job. The same goes for the offer of remote artificial intelligence jobs in the majority of large US cities”
Poker.org analysed Indeed.com in September 2020 for all 50 U.S. states. The company also compiled online search data for AI jobs in all 50 states, adding insights by using keyword research tools to find approximate search numbers for the key terms in every state.
