AI to create 110,000 jobs in Zhejiang
In one province, artificial intelligence appears to be creating abundant jobs for humans, instead of stealing them. A senior official in Zhejiang province, home to e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, said on Monday that it aims to hire more than 110,000 AI professionals in the next five years. Among them will be 50 worldleading AI experts, 500 scientific entrepreneurs, and 1,000 development and research talent, said Yao Zhiwen, deputy head of the organization department of the Communist Party of China, Zhejiang Provincial Committee. He said the provincial government would provide financial support to entrepreneurs in AI and encourage universities to enroll more graduate students on the subjects.
