Three hours into the poll (with 20 hours left) and more than 8,300 respondents, a majority (62.5%) answered "No." Only 37.5% answered "Yes."

It's been 15 months since ChatGPT's debut that ignited the AI boom, sending share prices of Nvidia, Microsoft, Alphabet, and the rest of the "Magnificent Seven" to unfathomable levels. Many are wondering just how long this hype cycle will last.

It's not just earnings calls; mentions of "ChatGPT" across filings have also plummeted.
