Researchers identified the highest AI jobs and interest in California. This shouldn’t be surprising since Silicon Valley and OpenAI, Google, Apple, and Facebook are in California. Other ranks may surprise.

Virginia was sixth with 34,221 and Massachusetts second with 34,603. Thirty-three thousand five hundred eighty-five points placed Florida sixth.
People in California were the most interested in artificial intelligence. They searched for AI software over 20 million times last year. GoTo revealed that 51.9% of Californians use AI applications like ChatGPT or Google’s Bard—over half the state’s population.
