In Alekseeva et al. (2019), the graph shows the demand for AI skills, measured as the number of posted vacancies as a share of all online job vacancies has been rapidly increasing over the analyzed time period, and the growth has accelerated since 2015. Between 2010 and 2019, the absolute number of job postings looking for AI skills grew by a factor of ten in absolute numbers and by a factor of four as a proportion of total job postings.
