53: In a new survey, 53% of British undergraduate students confessed that they have used AI to help them write essays. Most of them say they’re merely using chatbots to suggest topics, though one in eight says they’re generating the actual content.

4,700: The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received 4,700 reports of AI-generated images depicting child sexual exploitation last year. This highlights one of the most nefarious uses for generative AI, one that lawmakers and private companies are still grappling with.

185: The number of companies lobbying on AI-related policy issues increased by 185% between 2022 and 2023, according to OpenSecrets. More than 450 organizations lobbied on AI last year.

3.6 million: AI companies leased 3.6 million square feet in San Francisco in 2023. That represents a 46% increase in a single year, and the number could hit 12.5 million by 2030 if trends hold.
