The University of Northern Texas starts a new Master’s of Science AI Program

AI is a hot career path

According to a report by Gartner, the business value created by AI will reach $3.9 trillion in 2022.

UNT said students will be able to explore specific interests in AI and will leave the program with marketable skills. That’s important in an industry that Forbes has labeled as one of the “Hottest Career Paths of 2020 and Beyond.”

Forbes assembled a panel of experts to detail the hot careers in coming years. Of AI, panel member Tracy Levine of Advantage Talent Inc. wrote: “AI will continue to contribute to global economic activity and job growth. The job growth areas include R&D, application of AI across industries to grow capabilities, using AI to solve complex global issues, AI education and evaluating the ethics and impact of AI on society. The U.S. is leading in educational opportunities for students to learn the skills needed for AI jobs.”

To meet the booming demand for artificial intelligence professionals, the University of North Texas in Denton announced this week it will offer the only Master of Science degree in artificial intelligence in Texas beginning in the fall.
