A study by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft on the subject of “Machine Learning” (ML) shows a high demand for specialists in digital techniques and ML. “There is currently a shortage of around 85,000 academics with advanced data analysis and big data skills, particularly in the medical and engineering fields. A further 10,000 IT specialists from the areas of Big Data, Advanced Analytics, Business Analytics and Data Science are needed.
Global competition and the predicted positive market development are exacerbating the shortage of skilled workers. At the same time, more interdisciplinary skills must be taken into account in training and continuing education than in the past. This ranges from the inclusion of legal to ethical aspects. Current discussions about so-called dilemma situations, e.g. in automated road traffic, highlight the need for interdisciplinary competences.
Advaneo is also constantly on the lookout for suitable specialists. It is worth keeping a regular eye on the job offers.
