Artificial intelligence technologies which are the bedrock of many contemporary technologies are mostly machine (deep) learning systems.
The global artificial intelligence market was estimated at USD 39.9 billions in 2019, and is expected to reach USD 62.3 billions in 2020 and grow at a CAGR of 42.2% from 2020 to 2027.
Machine (deep) learning has sparked the development of many cutting-edge technologies, which are driving growth for top tech companies.
Almost every major tech company uses machine (deep) learning to better their product offerings, from Amazon to Apple.
It’s no wonder the best artificial intelligence stocks have thrived impressively in the past five years and still thriving.
Self-driving technologies, contemporary cloud infrastructures, and financial technologies, which all have a huge market with promising estimated CAGR for the next five years, are reliant on machine (deep) learning.
Different tech companies use machine (deep) learning in different ways and as such there are different ways to invest in machine (deep) learning.
One can choose to invest in machine (deep) learning chip makers like Nvidia, and/or Invest in companies using machine (deep) learning to develop disruptive technologies like Alphabet.
Moreover, one can also Invest in computer vision stocks, as computer vision is mostly specialized deep learning.
The promising thing about machine (deep) learning for me, as a growth seeking investor, is that it powers disruptive technologies. And disruptive technologies breeds fast growth stocks.
