While some people are hesitant to incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into their everyday life, others are fully behind the new technology, and according to a new study, Massachusetts is America’s most AI-obsessed state.

Here’s what that means.

YACSS is an AI-driven website builder created by Jesper Nissen. It uses sophisticated AI to create content and websites, using just one keyword as input. The site examined Google Keywords data of search terms frequently used by people interested in AI over the past year.

The terms were combined to find each state’s average monthly search volume for AI-related terms per 100,000 people.

“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.

What the AI Study Revealed About Massachusetts and Rhode Island

The study found that Massachusetts is the most intrigued by AI in the entire country, with an average monthly search of 1,446 for AI-related terms. The state also has the second-highest proportion of searches for ‘ChatGPT’, ‘Craiyon’, and ‘Open AI Playground’ on average every month.


Rhode Island ranks 12th in the nation, with an average monthly search volume of 911 per 100,000 people. Its top search was for ‘ChatGPT” with 6,600 searches.

Sounds like both Massachusetts and Rhode Island are eager to become educated on a growing trend that has tech moguls like Elon Musk nervous about a technological upheaval.

Truthfully, AI like ‘ChatGPT’ scares me. It seems way too powerful to be used by the average person, but I’m happy to see that Massachusetts and Rhode Island are at least open to learning more.

Or is it more of a concern about robots taking over our jobs? Most likely a little bit of both.
