The Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) has assembled a year’s worth of AI data providing a comprehensive picture of today’s AI world, as they have done annually for six years. And I do mean comprehensive—this year’s report came in at 302 pages. That’s a nearly 60 percent jump from the 2022 report, thanks in large part to the 2022 boom in generative AI demanding attention and an increasing effort to gather data on AI and ethics.
For those of you as eager to pour through the entire 2023 Artificial Intelligence Index Report as I was, you can dive in here. But for a snapshot of the entire set of findings, below are 10 charts capturing essential trends in AI today.
