Data provided by ElectronicsHub has revealed which countries are most interested in generative AI, with the Philippines topping the list.
The last two years have seen a significant increase in the use of AI for producing text, photos, audio, and video.
Billions of dollars are being invested to further AI technology, while millions of individuals worldwide are now using platforms like ChatGPT and Midjourney to realize their ideas.
But, based at least on search statistics, interest in AI varies per country thus far. Using data provided by ElectronicsHub, this graphic by Freny Fernandes of Visual Capitalist highlights which countries are most interested in generative AI tools.
The top 10 tools in each category were identified by ElectronicsHub based on their global monthly search volumes to gauge interest in various generative AI technologies.

The monthly Google search volumes for each tool were then recorded. The total volumes for each country were then added, and the results were scaled according to population (per 100,000 people) and Google’s market share in each market.
The data compilation showed that the Philippines (5,288) had the most search volume for generative AI tools, followed by Singapore (3,036) and Canada (2,213).
Let’s examine more closely the various generative AI techniques that countries appear to like globally.
Generating Text with AI
With the introduction of ChatGPT last year, generative AI gained international interest. But for more than five years, users have been able to modify, summarize, and verify grammar with the aid of some tools, such as QuillBot.
The Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and other Asian countries, as well as other regions of the world including Canada and the UAE, have been the most in demand for generative AI tools. These tools may be used for a variety of activities, from writing emails to producing job application packages.
Generating Images with AI
An image can convey a thousand words. Furthermore, a whole new realm of storytelling has been opened up with the introduction of generative Image AI technologies like DALL-E 2, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion. These text-to-image technologies, which were hitherto exclusive to designers, are now found in science and health.
The two countries generating the most interest in generative image AI globally, Israel and Singapore, appear to prefer using Midjourney, the top searched tool in 92 countries.
Generating Audio with AI
Though its application in music production is not as well-established, generative AI is already starting to leave its imprint. The applications of generative AI in audio are expanding globally, from the music industry to voice-to-text transcription platforms.
Although this might provide difficulties for the music industry, in 2023 the South American countries of Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, and Peru will see a rise in the use of voice-mimicry software such as FakeYou and VoiceGPT.
Generating Video with AI
Videos, from TV series and films to TikTok reels and YouTube content, are frequently the most effective means of drawing in viewers. However, compared to other generative media tools, generative AI’s video-generating tools are still in the early stages of development.
While countries like Singapore and the United Arab Emirates are the most interested in video-generation technologies like InVideo and Synthesia, everyone is waiting to see what the future of this industry holds.
Generative AI is Just Starting Out
Generative AI is transforming the creation and consumption of information, much as the printing press altered how people shared knowledge.
During the AI Safety Summit in the UK, Elon Musk warned that there would be no jobs in the future and that AI would be able to do everything while addressing U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
An exciting avenue emerges as the world of generative AI blurs the boundaries between fake and true, as well as between real and unreal.
Businesses and consumers are working to fully utilize AI, while legislators and governments are trying to understand how to regulate it to prevent abuse and negative effects.
