Amazon is hiring the most artificial intelligence talent, according to Glassdoor. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the hottest field in technology. Companies use AI to automate tasks typically done by people, and major tech firms see it as the foundation for their next generation of products. But there's a staggering talent shortage -- fewer than 10,000 people in the world have the skill set to conduct important AI research, according to technology and consulting firm Element AI. The shortage has driven salaries sky-high: AI specialists reportedly fetch compensation of $300,000 to $500,000.
