“Utah and other states continue to experience a widening workforce skills gap with newer AI and machine learning technologies. Software coding languages and platforms a freshman may be required to learn can often be obsolete upon graduation because of the speed newer AI/ML platforms and technologies are currently being built. As part of the Georgetown Beeck Center’s State CDO Network’s DataLabs program, I’m scraping public IT job descriptions from Utah’s largest employers to parse for near real-time, in-demand IT coding and scripting languages, platforms, certifications, frameworks and databases used primarily in the AI/ML space.”
