Someone has to put the hat on. No matter how flat the hierarchies are. In startup jargon we speak of chiefs: chief financial officer, chief marketing officer, chief sales office, chief technical officer and so on.

Or maybe not? In fact, opinions differ. And there is also disagreement about what a Chief AI Officer actually does. What does he or she have to be able to do? Where do you learn this and what can you earn with such a progressive new job? We investigated.
How many CAIOs are there already?
