By Patrick Scott

The proportion of mining industry operations and technologies companies hiring for artificial intelligence related positions dropped in September 2021, with 20% of the companies included in our analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was lower than the 21.9% of companies who were hiring for artificial intelligence related jobs in August 2021 and a decrease compared to the figure of 21.9% for the equivalent month last year.

When it came to the proportion of all job openings that were linked to artificial intelligence, related job postings dropped in September 2021, with 1.2% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was a decrease compared to the 1.5% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to artificial intelligence in the equivlent month a year ago.

Artificial intelligence is one of the topics that GlobalData, from whom our data for this article is taken, have identified as being a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforseen challenges.
