Why everyone wants to be a chief AI officer or “CAIO” – this is what it takes

While much has been written about AI and the potential danger it poses, AI and generative AI in particular have a lot to offer businesses and workers alike. In fact, private enterprises and governments are already attempting to incorporate AI and figure out how it can be utilized to fuel economic growth through strategic alignment with existing products and services.

In the U.S., federal agencies now must have a Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer (CAIO) responsible for operationalizing the safe use of AI. However, away from governing authorities, the C-Suite is also busy navigating ways to capitalize on the emerging ways AI can be used to achieve increased output, greater productivity and an edge over competitors.

Getting started

The good news is that the skills many tech workers currently have can be easily adapted for AI, as Aileen Allkins, CEO of TeKnowledge, a digital transformation consultancy that offers managed services, digital skilling solutions and cybersecurity strategies, explains.

“Roles focused on data analysis and software development offer critical analytical and programming skills that are directly applicable to AI. It’s important to highlight that these skills are learnable and that transitioning into specialized fields like AI is within reach for those with a base in tech,” she says.

“The discourse around AI’s implications on employment, particularly in tech, warrants a nuanced understanding. It’s pivotal to recognize that AI’s role extends beyond task automation; it serves as a catalyst for job evolution and the creation of new, specialized roles. This tech shift underscores the importance of adaptability and the acquisition of new competencies where AI enhances human capabilities rather than supplants them.”


And for those who can navigate the sector, a powered up paycheck awaits-according to Indeed’s Workforce Insights Report, having Generative AI skills gives you an earning potential of $174,727, or a 47% difference with the skill versus without.

“Half of the highest-paid skills in tech are AI-specific, which suggests that job seekers with AI skills can stand out in a competitive job market, and potentially earn more than their counterparts,” the report shared.
