The job market for machine learning and artificial intelligence-related (ML/AI) positions is heating up significantly.

From the beginning of 2014 to the start of 2016, job postings for ML/AI positions rose steadily from about 60 job postings per million to more than 100, according to trend data provided by job search site Indeed.

In 2016, the number of such postings jumped as much as they had over the past two--up to 150 postings per million. The number of postings for such jobs currently outstrips the number of searches for such jobs--100 per million searches versus 150 per million postings. The leading companies hiring for those positions are Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and NVIDIA.

Even back in 2014, AI was solidly in the lead compared to other job postings involving emerging technologies such as three-dimensional printing, blockchain technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), virtual/augmented reality, and wearable technology.

The other technologies on the list, with the exception of IoT, have remained consistently at about 10 posts per million during that time.
