India Surpasses the US As Most Mature AI Market

The US was the first place in the world where AI started to gain a foothold, but in spite of the fact that this is the case the rate of AI adoption in the country has fallen behind that of an unlikely competitor, namely India. The Decision Intelligence Index which is released each year by Peak recently showed that India has now surpassed both the US as well as the UK in terms of the maturity of its AI market, receiving an overall score of 64 out of 100 with all things having been considered and taken into account.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that the US only managed to obtain a score of 52, and the UK fell well behind with a low score of 44. AI adoption rates among US companies hover at around 28% which is 3 points higher than India’s 25%, but Indian companies are still managing to get ahead thanks to the broad spectrum of internal communications that use AI in those corporations.

18% of tech workers in the US were unsure of their employers’ use of AI, and only 2% of Indian workers said the same. AI seems to be having a much more positive impact on the work lives of Indian employees as well, with 78% reporting improved wellbeing thanks to AI implementation. The US, on the other hand, only has about 47% of workers stating that AI is improving their mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, so the US is clearly falling behind.

However, tech innovation still tends to be centralized in California because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up exposing tech companies to the most talented and skilled workers in the world. California got an AI Leadership Score of 58 out of a maximum 100 points, but an interesting thing to point out is that it went further with a score of 61. That suggests that more tech innovation will occur in New York than might have been the case otherwise.
