The increase of AI applications is leading to a fast rise in demand for AI experts. Many companies, and corporate partners of AI Sweden, have identified the shortage of AI talents as the top challenge to their planned expansions in AI applications. AI Sweden together with partners are therefore initiating a number of talent programs to address this shortage in expertise!
How to attract talent
Together with partners in the different talent programs, AI Sweden develops activities with the purpose of
- Growing the national talent pool
- Attracting and sourcing international talent
- Boosting talent with the knowledge, best practices and a network of people with similar challenges and solutions
The expansion of AI applications in both the private and the public sectors leads to a rapid increase in demand for AI experts. Many companies and AI Sweden partners identify the shortage of AI talent as a major challenge.
AI Sweden’s efforts related to talent attraction reinforcing partners’ capabilities were launched in August 2021 and are continuously being scaled. The primary purpose is to contribute to partners’ ability to recruit more talent. All talent programs developed directly or indirectly by AI Sweden should increase the talent pool for AI Sweden’s partners.
The talent programs are built by and for AI Sweden’s partners, and a partner organization or a group of partners typically initiate and fund them.
