California is home to 35 of Forbes’ AI 50 companies, with the Bay Area and in particular, San Francisco and San Jose, comprising 60% of new generative AI jobs as of May 2023. The poster-child for generative AI, OpenAI — the founder of ChatGTP — is located here.

New York houses four top-50 AI companies, Texas is home to two, and Massachusetts has one. In New York, image and video editing company Runway, which was founded in 2018, has a suite of 30 AI-powered tools, which were actually used for some scenes in the Oscar-winning Everything Everywhere All at Once.
