How Investors Use Artificial Intelligence in the Stock Market

In episode 3 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig goes directly to the source of artificial intelligence expertise and hosts discussions with technologists who specialize in the field. Interviews are held in “lightning round” format, which are rapid interviews with tech experts for immediate depth on each topic. Artificial intelligence makes it possible for machines to learn from experience. To adjust for superior intelligence, the machines are trained as more data is analyzed. Highly publicized uses for AI include chess matches or self-driving cars. The most potent application for artificial intelligence, however, may be the way it’s being used right…

Nvidia Versus Xilinx: Heavy Hitter AI Stocks

This week, I revisited Nvidia for the first time since the crypto bust. If you’re a regular reader of mine, then you’ll remember that I defended Nvidia as having a strong fundamental story due to their developer following and the GPU-powered cloud. We’ve seen the GPU-powered cloud story take shape with the recent acquisition of Mellanox. However, no analysis on Nvidia would be complete without a discussion on Xilinx, which is what I wrote about this week.

How Robots Improve STEM Education

In episode 2 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig goes directly to the source of robotics expertise and hosts discussions with technologists who specialize in the field. Interviews are held in “lightning round” format, which are rapid interviews with tech experts for immediate depth on each topic. In episode 2, Richard Margolin of RoboKind discusses how facial expressive robots improve STEM education initiatives and how robots connect better with autistic children. Robots for STEM is a coding course tailored for elementary students with self-guided curriculum. The problem today is that many elementary school teachers do not know how to code,…

“Algorithms are not biased; data is biased” – MWC 2019

AI may seem like an auxiliary technology to how we live our daily lives today, however, it will soon be the primary driver across the tech industry. PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates the world economy will reach an additional 15.7 trillion in value by 2030 due to artificial intelligence. To put this into perspective, the top 5 technology companies today have a combined value of about $4 trillion, which includes Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Facebook. Over the next decade, AI will drive a market 5x the size of tech’s current global spend. Although this growth is exciting on many levels, the panelists at MWC 2019 voiced concerns about the handling of inherent biases that comes from data, as clearly discrimination by age, race, gender, education or other factors within audience segmentation is counterproductive to the advancement of society that AI promises.
