Amazon: AI To Drive Competitive Advantage

#artificialintelligence

In my view, though impossible to quantify exactly, Amazon's AI investments and capabilities should sustain and increase its competitive advantage over time, leading me to believe that the stock has a much longer runway than what investors are giving it credit for. Looking at Microsoft's Q2 call (CYQ4), Nadella, MSFT's CEO, began by briefly summarizing earnings and then described FY17 as "a tremendous year of customer momentum with Cloud, AI, and digital transformation". In the press release, the only direct mention of machine learning and AI came in bullet number 20: "AWS customers continue to ramp their use of Amazon Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence services…" Even sell side analysts do not fully appreciate how important AI is to Amazon. For example, in the Q2 earnings call last month, AI was only mentioned towards the end of the call and it came from a sell side analyst: "As you continue to scale operations and you bring data to bear and robotics and Kivas and AI machine learning, are you finding that kind of new fulfillment center optimization curve is accelerating?"
