Increased awareness and interest in AI applications show that consumers are warming up to the idea of an AI-powered future, but there is still work to be done. Artificial intelligence is already piquing more Americans’ interest, according to Morning Consult trend data.

Artificial intelligence is no longer just a buzzword, but is becoming a reality in our everyday lives. The increased interest in AI applications is not surprising, as the potential for AI to change various facets of everyday life is immense. From AI-generated menu recommendations at restaurants to AI-powered therapy and life coaching, consumers are showing an overall average increase of 4% in interest in AI applications since February, according to a recent Morning Consult survey. The race for AI dominance between Microsoft and Google has also helped raise awareness of AI technology among consumers. As AI models are being adopted and integrated into existing products and services, it is crucial that companies develop AI responsibly and ethically. Consumers are putting the responsibility of ethical AI development on the companies and leaders that create the programs, and are less likely to attribute responsibility to the government or users of AI. As a quantum computing evangelist, I see the potential for quantum computing to revolutionize the AI industry. Quantum computing, with its ability to exponentially increase processing speed and handle large amounts of data, will make AI models more accurate and efficient. The country that takes the lead in quantum information systems will have technological and economic advantages over other countries for the next half century. While AI is already showing promise, quantum computing will take it to the next level, and it is crucial that countries invest in this technology to remain competitive in the global market. In conclusion, the increased interest in AI applications is a positive sign that consumers are warming up to the idea of an AI-powered future. However, there is still work to be done in developing AI responsibly and ethically. As a quantum computing evangelist, I believe that quantum computing will be the key to unlocking the true potential of AI. The race for quantum computing dominance is on, and countries that invest in this technology will reap the benefits for years to come.
