Tennessee’s Digital Economy
Tennessee aims to be a leader in the data-intensive knowledge economy, and is poised for growth in AI, with its largest metropolitan areas demonstrating AI leadership potential. AI-related jobs in Tennessee are in demand in nearly every sector of the economy. AI-focused collaborations between universities and industry, government, and nonprofits have more than doubled over the past two decades (AI Index Report 2022), an indicator of the growing interest in AI and its role in society.
