Six questions about the demand for artificial intelligence skills in labour markets
This study responds to six key questions about the impact that the demand for Artificial
Intelligence (AI) skills is having on labour markets. What are the occupations where
AI skills are most relevant? How do different AI-relevant skills combine in job requirements?
How quickly is the demand for AI-related skills diffusing across labour markets and
what is the relationship between AI skill demands and the demand for cognitive skills
across jobs? Finally, are AI skills leading to a wage premium and how different are
the wage returns associated with AI and routine skills? To shed light on these aspects,
this study leverages Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms to analyse the information
contained in millions of job postings collected from the internet.
