Seven figure AI salaries are not far

PLUS: Americans don't trust AI companies and Amazon AI reviews.

Hello folks, here’s what we have today;

 Our picks 


AI talent is the biggest moat you can have today. Some weeks back, Netflix posted a job shelling out total comp as high as $900,000 to hire AI talent. Other major employers like Hinge, Walmart, Goldman Sachs, and Amazon are also recruiting AI experts with salaries reaching $250,000 or more. Prompt engineering jobs are averaging at around $130,000 total comp.

The interesting chart in this WSJ report is how even after explosive growth in AI job posting, it is just 400 jobs per million. Unpaywalled version here.


Americans don’t trust AI giants. Shockerrr!! Just kidding. This distrust was anecdotally evident, and now in a poll by YouGov surveying 1001 US votes, 82% said they don't trust tech executives to regulate AI. This report from Axios combines this with KPMG’s worldwide data from earlier this year and presents the relevant data points.

For example, 72% prefer slowing down the development of AI, but confidence in the government's ability to regulate AI is low UK (49%) and UK (45%). (there’s higher confidence in Asia with China at 86% and India at 70%)

3/ Amazon enhances product reviews with generative AI. Last week, Amazon released an LLM tool for sellers to write product descriptions. It will now summarize product reviews for the customers. The summary will capture different sentiments with a few buttons like “easy to use” or “fragile” that lead to specific reviews.
