  • Delineate research areas
  • See the global AI research landscape

Findings reveal that China is growing in importance as a global leader in AI research, and there is an increasing trend of researchers moving from academia to industry, especially in the United States. Globally, AI research has accelerated, growing by more than 12% annually in the past five years (2013-2017), compared to less than 5% for the previous 5 years (2008-2012). By contrast, research output overall, across all subject areas globally, has grown by 0.8% annually over the past five years (2013-2017).
