A $19 Investment in the Most Lucrative AI Stocks - Investment U

#artificialintelligence

So far this year, a lot of the big-name AI companies are obliterating the market... Shares of Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), Facebook (Nasdaq: FB), NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) and Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG) are all up double digits in 2017. The Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence ETF (Nasdaq: BOTZ) is keeping pace with more expensively priced AI plays... Year to date, the Global X ETF is up 24%. The largest holding in the ETF is Intuitive Surgical (Nasdaq: ISRG). Investors can play this massive trend by targeting companies individually - both big and small... Or they can use a much more affordable approach with an ETF like Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence.


Nvidia's Next Big Thing: The HGX-1 AI Platform

#artificialintelligence

In an article published in December, last year, I said Nvidia's stock could scale new highs if the company's revenue continues to grow at a CAGR of 20% plus in the foreseeable future. Investors need to understand how the advantages of TensorFlow coupled with Nvidia's HGX-1 reference architecture will boost its revenue in the foreseeable future, which Nvidia's stock at today's price around $150 hasn't factored in. While Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) was busy to make its MKL (math kernel library) more versatile via incorporating the Neon deep learning framework of Nervana, the startup which Intel acquired almost a year ago, Nvidia silently made its CUDA parallel computing software platform compatible with TensorFlow. AMD, with its upcoming Radeon Instinct line of GPUs along with its upcoming Zen-based Naples CPUs (bundled with the SenseMI technology), could be Nvidia's real competitor, but for that to happen the OpenCL (open computing language) software library (which is the CUDA equivalent for AMD, and to some extent Intel) needs to support TensorFlow.

AI helped triple NVIDIA's data center revenue in the most recent quarter, with the company's CFO, Colette Kress, saying: "AI has quickly emerged as the single most powerful force in technology. If you have an Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Echo speaker in your home, have ever used Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google Assistant, or talked to Apple's Siri, then you've interacted with artificial intelligence on some level already. Amazon's most lucrative business, its Amazon Web Services (AWS), now offers machine-learning services (part of the broader AI market) to improve natural-language processing, image analysis, and speech generation across apps and services that use AWS. The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Alphabet (A shares), Alphabet (C shares), Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Nvidia.

Apple Uses Its Chip Expertise To Move Ahead In AI

#artificialintelligence

This chip may operate along the same lines as Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) that accelerates certain specialized mathematical operations useful in AI. While he avoided revealing any specific Apple initiatives, his comments reveal his concerns that AI software requires enormous computing power. Gurman's article incorrectly states that Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) already has hardware AI acceleration in its Snapdragon 835. Qualcomm's Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine that Gurman refers to is in fact a set of software APIs.


Chip Magic

#artificialintelligence

Entirely new chip designs, architectures and capabilities are coming from a wide array of key component players across the tech industry, including Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), AMD (NASDAQ:AMD), Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), Micron (NASDAQ:MU) and ARM, as well as internal efforts from companies like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), Huawei, Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). These new designs leverage a variety of different types of semiconductor computing elements, including CPUs, GPUs (graphics processing units), FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays), DSPs (digital signal processors) and other specialized "accelerators" that are optimized to do specific tasks well. For example, even in the traditional CPU world, AMD's new Ryzen line underwent significant architectural design changes, resulting in large speed improvements over the company's previous chips. Qualcomm has proven to be very adept at combining multiple elements, including CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, modems and other elements into sophisticated SOCs (system on chip), such as the new Snapdragon 835 chip.


Bullish on NVIDIA? You'll Love These Stocks -- The Motley Fool

#artificialintelligence

The company has posted quarter after quarter of strong sales, grown gaming GPU market share, introduced new driverless car technologies, and expanded its artificial intelligence (AI) opportunities -- all of which have led investors to swoon to the stock, pushing it up over 200% over the past 12 months. Amazon's Echo may seem like just another consumer product, but powering the unit is the company's Alexa virtual assistant. Don't expect Amazon's AI strategies to be an immediate payoff, but the company is taking big steps now with Alexa and its AI tools for developers to build a strong artificial intelligence foundation for the future. The company already brings in 62% of its total revenue from its gaming segment, and the growing virtual reality market could help NVIDIA continue its gaming success.
