1 Phenomenal Growth Industry You Should Buy Shares In

One way to get to the riches is to follow the trend. Peter Lim, one of the richest men in Singapore, said that his secret to investing well is to invest in sectors that have good prospects. One high-growth sector that is currently staring us right in our faces is artificial intelligence (AI).

According to estimates from UBS, a Swiss bank, revenue from the AI industry is expected to balloon to US$12.5 billion from US$5 billion in 2015, representing a massive growth of 20% annually. In another statistic, PwC states that by 2030, AI will contribute up to US$15.7 trillion in global gross domestic product (GDP). No matter the data, we can see how huge AI is poised to become.

What is Artificial Intelligence and Why Should You Invest in it?

“Artificial intelligence (AI) is the capability of machines to imitate human intelligence. These can include learning, reasoning, and self-correction. For example, artificial intelligence can recognise speech, pictures and now AI is even being used in self-driving cars.”

Why is Machine Learning Such a Promising Technology?

“Machine learning is a study of algorithms and statistical models which computer systems use to perform tasks without being given explicit instructions. The AI system makes use of pattern recognition and inference to “learn” over time how to be more effective and efficient in carrying out its tasks.”

3 Main Categories of Artificial Intelligence and What They Mean for Us

“Artificial Intelligence is taking centre stage like never before, and here’s what you need to know about the different types of AI.”

Will Artificial Intelligence Take Over Our Jobs?

“The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Institute of Banking and Finance (IBF) had just released fresh findings recently on the impact of data analytics and automation on the future workforce, and the prognosis for humans is not looking good. According to the findings, in just the finance industry alone, the next three to five years may see a third of job roles performed by fewer workers, which would lead to reduced overall demand for workers for specific job roles.”

2 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Make Life Easier

“There are several ways in which AI is making our lives easier and more convenient. These generally involve software and computer programmes which can “learn” over time to recognise human preferences, as well as increasing connectivity to our various electronic devices to enable better all-round communication.”

3 Ways You Can Invest in Artificial Intelligence

“These are certainly exciting days, with AI set to completely remodel the way we live. Investors who can take advantage and invest early in this technology could potentially be well-rewarded in the future.”
