Lawyers with AI Skills Can Reap 49% Wage Premium, Research Shows

A study by PwC found that workers who have expertise on artificial intelligence can earn about a 49 percent higher salary than peers without AI skills in the United States, and about a 27 percent higher salary in the United Kingdom. 

The PwC study also reports on how AI is changing the labor market, and rationalizing that “sectors with highest AI penetration” currently have five times greater labor productivity growth. AI skills such as neural networks have been invaluable to companies in professional services, communication, and financial sectors.
