data has a better idea

AI careers could see you work for Google, build robots or work with intelligent apps that understand what users need. Find out more about five of the best careers in AI.

Are you looking for your first job, and don’t know where to start? Or have you started in a new field but don’t think it’s for you? Azem Hoti, Engineering Recruitment specialist at VHR, reveals his list of best careers in AI.

The artificial intelligence market is set to be worth $169.41 Billion in the next five years. An exciting field to specialise in, it can involve anything from solving major problems to designing an app and to building robots, and could even see you working for Google.

Space Technologist

With governments around the world investing billions into space research and development, artificial intelligence jobs in this sector will be exciting and challenging over the next decade and beyond. Computer Vision Technologists working in the Space industry use Augmented Reality (AR), programming language, image recognition and 3D reconstruction to deliver the spacecraft of the future. Becoming a CAD Technician will help you get some of the visual design experience you need, and this role doesn’t require a degree.

If you have excellent attention to detail, are good at solving problems and have brilliant communication and relationship-building skills, this could be the right career for you.


Software Engineer

Looking for a career where you can work closely with a team? Software Engineering involves collaborating with colleagues in product development, research and IT. Working across many different projects means that no day is ever the same.

Software Engineers work across all tech areas but are particularly in demand in AI. They use many programming languages to design software for artificial intelligence programmes. The nature of this role is also constantly changing, meaning that those in this job never stop learning new skills, experimenting with new systems and advancing in their careers.

Software Engineer is an example of engineering jobs you can do without a degree.


Medical AI Scientist

Those working in health, science and medicine can create intelligent systems that can help doctors interpret patient scans, diagnose illnesses and support patients in intensive care units. You could get the chance to design prosthetics, create life-saving drugs or create smartphone apps that help ambulances reach and transport millions of patients to Accident & Emergency departments.


Machine Learning Specialist

Machine Learning is the building of independent machines that can think, learn and perform activities by themselves. This job involves creating and programming artificially intelligent computers, from personalising search engine results and news feeds, to building drones and self-driving cars.

Excellent maths and computer skills will give you an advantage in this career path.


Big Data Architect

This role is among the highest-paying jobs in artificial intelligence. There’s a big demand for your big data skills in the world of digital careers. Big Data Engineers help business systems to communicate with each other and gather data.

Big Data Architects build systems and processes that break down large amounts of data into formats that are much easier for business leaders to understand. They ensure a company has the best possible infrastructure to help Data Scientists do their jobs properly. They monitor the systems they create and constantly update and improve them.

Fast learning abilities, skills in coding and different scripting languages and project management skills are well-suited to Data Architecture.
