The squeeze on AI talent could cripple America's most important companies

#artificialintelligence 

With the AI revolution solidly underway, tech's top 5 companies are investing huge amounts of money into AI development and AI engineering talent. Meanwhile, VC investments in AI startups are at all time highs, too. And in between the startups and the top 5 are the Fortune 500 companies -- the companies with the most data that stand to benefit most from machine learning -- who are just not able to compete for talent. AI talent is either going for huge money at the top companies or for a moonshot at a startup. That means most of the Fortune 500 are being squeezed out of the AI revolution.
