Tampa Bay is among the country's AI job hotspots, a new analysis finds.

Why it matters: As AI emerges as the hottest new thing in tech, cities outside Silicon Valley can get in on the action — and reap the potentially lucrative economic rewards.

How it works: The estimates come from UMD-LinkUp, a collaboration between the University of Maryland, job listings platform LinkUp and consultancy/executive firm Outrigger Group.

  • The researchers are using AI language models to sift through LinkUp listings for AI jobs, defined as those requiring technical skills to create or use AI models.
  • Their use of AI significantly enhances their accuracy compared to traditional keyword filtering, the researchers say.
