Best Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Watch

Best Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Watch

Vantage Updated Updated Sat, 2023 December 23 11:59

The world is now armed with algorithms, and data is the ammunition for the digital world.

Citizens around the globe don’t always get to opt in or out of this digital world – even when they are not actively participating in it, most people are still passively involved in the digital world. Data and the algorithms that feed upon the data are shaping our future and changing the way we look at and interact with the world. 

As a market participant, however, you are in a unique position where you could capitalise on the ongoing developments in Artificial Intelligence (“AI”).

What are AI Stocks?

AI stocks refer to the shares of companies that are involved in the development, integration, or use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. 

These companies might design algorithms, build AI-driven products, or use AI to enhance their services. As the AI space growings in importance and adoption, investors may view these stocks as an opportunity for future growth. Just like stocks in any other sector, the performance of AI stocks can vary based on factors like market demand and overall economic conditions.

AI State of Affairs 

AI, a field of study that seeks to teach computers by allowing them to learn from experience, has existed for over six decades. However, its day-to-day impact can only be felt in today’s society. 

According to a report by PWC, AI has the potential to boost the global economy by a staggering $15.7 trillion USD by 2030 [1]. This massive growth can be broken down into $6.6 trillion USD from heightened productivity and another $9.1 trillion USD from consumer-driven effects [2]. Although AI adoption varies across industries and regions, it’s predominantly in its infancy.

How Do Companies Use AI Technology?

Companies and businesses can utilise AI technology to help streamline workflow, and more. Here are some examples of AI technology usage:

1. Enhanced Customer Experience

Companies deploy AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants to provide real-time responses to customer queries, thereby enhancing the user experience. These tools can handle a wide variety of tasks, from answering frequently asked questions to guiding users through complex processes.

For example, banks can use AI chatbots on their websites and mobile apps. When a customer has a question about their account or how to perform a particular transaction, the chatbot can provide instant answers, reducing the need for the customer to call customer support or make a trip to visit the bank branch to solve their problem.

2. Data Analysis and Decision Making

AI algorithms can be used to analyse large sets of data, identifying patterns and predicting future trends at a speed quicker than humans. By processing this information, businesses are able to understand their customers better and help to optimise their business operation while identifying new opportunities.

Business owners can use AI to analyse customer purchase data and customer behavior during their website visits to predict which products will be popular in the upcoming season. Based on this analysis, they can adjust their stock levels, marketing strategies, and promotions accordingly.

3. Automation and Efficiency

Companies implement AI-driven automation to handle repetitive tasks, streamline workflows, and reduce human error. This not only enhances efficiency but also allows employees to focus on more strategic, high-value tasks.

In manufacturing, companies use AI-powered robots to handle tasks such as product assembly, quality control, and packaging. These robots can work around the clock without fatigue, ensuring consistent product quality and faster production rates.
