The use of online job advertisement has made them an important source of quantitative information about the innovation system. This data offers significant opportunities to study trends, transitions in the job markets and skill demands. In this study, we have utilized the job ads data of a major Finnish job market platform to investigate the emergence of AI-related jobs. More than 480 000 job advertisements during 2013-2020 was used to create insight on skills transitions, particularly focusing on artificial intelligence related skills. A glossary of AI-related skills was created and applied to the job data to identify the relatedness spectrum of ads to AI using a three-tier system. By incorporating sectoral firm-level information, we explored the variation in AI-related skills demand over time and sectors. Our study presents a systematic way to utilize job advertisement data for detecting demand trends for specific skills.
