Careers in data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and related technologies are considered among the best choices to pursue in an uncertain future economy where many jobs may end up automated and performed by robots and AI.

Yet in spite of the likely strong and secure future of these careers, the job marketplace remains fundamentally unbalanced. There are still many more jobs open and available than there are qualified applicants to fill those jobs. Just do a search on Monster for the keyword machine learning and you will find thousands of job openings across the country.

Whether you are just starting out in your IT career or you are watching high-profile IT layoffs and considering the best new skills to learn, chances are you are wondering what the best skills are to emphasize on your LinkedIn profile and the best skills to focus on in the next online course you take.
