(ECNS) - A survey by China Youth Daily found 78 percent of respondents are willing to shift to new jobs made available by the booming development of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

Last month the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security released 13 new professions to keep pace with economic and technological development. The list now includes those who work as AI technicians, electronic sports specialists and unmanned aerial vehicle pilots.

Among 2,004 respondents in the survey, 73.8 percent said they are hopeful about the new professions and 64 percent believe they create more career opportunities.

The survey also found over 65 percent said traditional industries are undergoing transformation, creating demand for new talents as a result.

Jiang Cheng, an associate professor at Peking University's Graduate School of Education, said both consumers and companies are beginning to face a more open, inclusive and diverse society that will be filled with new occupations.

A student who now majors in economics said she will pursue a Master’s program in Big Data Analytics after graduation and plans to work in cloud computing. 

Luo Yun, an alias, who has worked with drones for four years, said the industry is experiencing rapid growth month-by-month because a broad range of areas such as agriculture and rescue are increasingly using unmanned aerial vehicles.
