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”).
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 NASSCOM report, AI can be expected to contribute an additional USD 450 billion to India’s GDP by 2025, accounting for 10%of India’s GDP goal. Although the rate and extent of AI adoption vary by economic sector, almost every industry is anticipated to be impacted and disrupted one way or another by robotics and AI-enabled automatic processes. Many industries stand to benefit from the introduction of AI, but a few companies, in particular, are poised to gain more than others .
The AI sector in expected to skyrocket to $957 billion by the year 2035 and this would be equivalent to nearly 15% of India’s GDP . However, it is essential to note that this sector has a higher inherent risk due to high capital requirements and cutting-edge technology demands. To filter out companies with purportedly higher risk and poorer past performance, we have taken the quantitative approach during the selection of AI stocks based on the following criteria:
Using these three metrics against BSE SENSEX as a benchmark, we have listed out 8 AI stocks in India.
