Searches for ‘AI’ on Google smashes Bitcoin and crypto this year

AI Takes Over Google Trends

Data from Google Trends has revealed that this year, searches for artificial intelligence (AI) have far outpaced searches for “Bitcoin” and “crypto”.

Until August 2022, search interest for “Bitcoin” and “crypto” were more frequent than for “AI”, however this trend began to flip around that time. In November 2022, when OpenAI’s ChatGPT was launched, the gap between “AI” and crypto-related search terms widened.

Currently, “AI” has a Google Trends score of 91, while “Bitcoin” has a score of 22. Google scores search terms from 0 to 100 based on a topic’s proportion to total searches across all topics.

The surge of interest in AI is evident in keywords such as “AI robot”, “NBC AI”, “new AI”, “Placer.AI”, “Replika AI”, “Sima.AI”, “Que es el Web 3.0”, “AI Web 3.0”, “AI and ML”, and “AI BBC”.

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence

The effects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been far-reaching in 2021. From fears of AI taking jobs away from actors to the launch of chatbots such as ChatGPT, Google Bard, Meta AI, GrokAI and others, AI has been a major topic of discussion.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin (BTC) has been struggling from the tail-end of a bear market cycle, which has lasted since late 2021. Despite this, the cryptocurrency has seen a 150% increase in price, reaching $43,400 at the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap data. Google Trends shows that the most interest in Bitcoin has come from El Salvador, Nigeria, Netherlands, Brazil and Switzerland.

AI development has been particularly noteworthy this year, with the proliferation of AI nude services, as well as the launch of, Replika AI, and the emergence of Web 3.0, which is powered by AI and machine learning.

AI Becoming Popular Among Job Seekers

Google Trend data indicates that AI has become particularly popular among users in Vietnam, China, the Philippines and Myanmar. This was first noted by Crypto X (formerly Twitter) user Autism Capital in a Dec. 26 post addressed to their 249,900 followers.

One comment on the post suggested that the disparity was due to Bitcoin and crypto being an older point of interest when compared to AI — meaning that people have already extensively looked up the crypto terms in prior years.

In July, analysis from crypto data aggregator CoinGecko showed that AI had become the clear-cut winner among job seekers.

In November 2022, the launch of ChatGPT caused a huge spike in searches for “AI jobs” compared to searches for “crypto jobs”, with a ratio of four to one. This was further evidenced by the increased interest in keywords such as “ai robot”, “nbc ai”, “new ai”, “”, “replika ai”, “”, “que es el web 3.0”, “ai web 3.0”, “ai and ml”, and “ai bbc”.
