CNET, the renowned technology advice brand, introduces AI Atlas, an immersive consumer directory featuring human-written reviews and ratings of generative AI products. Designed to help audiences understand a breakthrough new technology and make informed decisions on how to spend their time and money, AI Atlas is a unique resource in the consumer tech landscape.

AI Atlas includes detailed AI product reviews, coupled with practical insights on how to use this new generation of tools. The goal is to empower our audience and give them the confidence to understand, explore and adopt AI products.

"With AI Atlas, we're not just providing reviews; we're fostering a community of informed decision-makers ready to embrace technology responsibly," said Adam Auriemma, editor in chief at CNET. 

This innovative advice platform, developed by CNET's expert product review team, is built on a proprietary methodology for evaluating and rating generative AI tools.

Alongside the editorial library, a new video series, called Expert v AI, will put AI to the test by pitting CNET experts in a head-to-head battle of knowledge and expertise. CNET experts in tech, electric vehicles, wellness and more break down the AI's answers, grade its performance and separate fact from fiction.
