Unsurprisingly, California emerged as the state with the most interest in AI interest, with 52 out of 100 residents regularly searching for AI apps since May of 2022.

California’s top spot comes as no surprise considering California is home to some of the world's leading AI companies, including Google, Apple, and Facebook. California is also home to institutions such as Stanford University and the University of California, which have made significant contributions to the field of AI.

Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey also ranked prominently among the most active searchers of AI apps. New York ranked third out of 50 states with interest in AI. In the state, 47 out of 100 people are interested in AI apps.

In New York, since 2022, there have been 43,899 AI job postings, underscoring its position as a state with significant AI opportunities and engagement.

On the other end, there are states that don’t seem to be interested in AI at all. In Mississippi, only 12 out of 100 residents search for chatbots, making the state lowest-ranked in AI interest. The states of Louisiana, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Kentucky round off the top five with the lowest curiosity when it comes to AI.
