New Jersey Obsessed with Artificial Intelligence

Are robots taking over The Garden STate?

A new study has determined that New Jersey is the fifth most AI-obsessed state in America, behind fourth ranked California. Rounding out the top 5: New York in third, Washington in second with Massachusetts topping the list.

The research carried out by AI driven website builder YACSS, using sophisticated AI to create content and websites, using only one keyword as input.  YACSS examined Google Keywords data of search terms frequently used by people interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI) over the past 12 months. These terms were combined to find each state’s average monthly search volume for AI-related terms per 100,000 people.

New Jersey ranks fifth, amassing 1,099 searches per 100,000 people for AI keywords. This results from the state taking the second spot for ‘ChatSonic’ searches and ‘’ searches and being the fifth-highest searcher for ‘ChatGPT.’ 

“AI has recently taken the world by storm, especially with the roaring popularity of ChatGPT, and we are seeing many Americans embracing its use in their daily tasks,” said a spokesperson for YACSS. “The study reveals Washington as the second most interested in AI in the country, highlighting the state’s interest in optimizing its creative efforts with artificial intelligence.”
