AI jobs exploded across the United States in 2022, with California as the top state for AI-related hiring with more than 142,000 positions posted, according to the 2023 AI Index Report from Stanford University's Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence.

Investments from large tech and venture firms led to nearly 800,000 AI-related job openings nationwide, the report says. Other top states were Texas, New York, and Florida.
