Analysis of the 100 most cited AI papers in 2022, which is gaining momentum while Google and the US are strong?

AI technology is advancing rapidly, and in 2022, many generative AIs such as Stability AI's image generation AI 'Stable Diffusion', OpenAI's image generation AI 'DALL E2', and interactive AI 'ChatGPT' will be announced. It became a hot topic. Zeta Alpha, an AI-related research company, has published the analysis results of the 100 most cited AI-related papers published in 2022.

Must read: the 100 most cited AI papers in 2022

Below is a bar graph showing the breakdown of the number of top 100 cited papers by country in 2020 (blue), 2021 (red), and 2022 (yellow). The United States, which has been at the top for three years in a row, has the most, with 68 in 2022. The second place is China and the third place is the UK.

Below is a bar graph showing the percentage by country, focusing on the number of times the paper was cited, not the number of cited papers. The United States ranks first, China ranks second, and the United Kingdom ranks third. The rankings are almost the same as the number of cited papers, but the difference is very large, and even in 2022 (yellow), the United States accounts for almost 60%.

This time, the breakdown of the number of papers in the top 100 citations is shown in a bar graph by organization, not by country. Google has the most, followed by Meta and Microsoft. Focusing on 2022 (yellow), Google has not changed much from the previous year, but Meta, DeepMind, and Stanford University have increased significantly compared to the previous year. Zeta Alpha commented, ``In recent years, companies have taken the initiative in AI research, and academic institutions such as universities have not had much impact, but academic institutions tend to have a longer impact than companies.'' doing.

Looking at the bar graph showing the breakdown of the top 100 cited papers by type of organization: industry, academic institution (academia), and industry-university collaboration (mixed), the number of companies and academic institutions did not change much.

Below is a bar graph summarizing the number of research results published from 2020 to 2022 by organization. First place was Google, second place was Tsinghua University in China, third place was Microsoft.

Below is a bar graph showing the percentage of published papers ranked in the top 100 citations by organization. 2020 is shown in blue, 2021 in red, 2022 in yellow, and the three-year total in green. According to this, the top was OpenAI, and the second place was EleutherAI, a non-profit organization that conducts research on large-scale language models.

From the above results, Zeta Alpha said, ``The United States and Google are still influential, and DeepMind has achieved brilliant success, but OpenAI has a strong product impact, and its research results are cited quickly and widely. , is at an unrivaled level.'

The top 5 most cited AI-related papers in 2022 are as follows.

1st place: AlphaFold Protein Structure Database: massively expanding the structural coverage of protein-sequence space with high-accuracy models | Nucleic Acids Research | Oxford Academic
2nd place: ColabFold: making protein folding accessible to all | Nature Methods
3rd place: [2204.06125] Hierarchical Text-Conditional Image Generation with CLIP Latents
