A Deep Dive Into What AI Means For Corporate America Pt 2.

By Graham Summers, MBA

We’re picking up where we left off our A Deep Dive Into What AI Means For Corporate America investment series. If you missed the first part from this series last week, you can access it here.

By brief way of review:

  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the dominant theme in the investing world today.
  2. Currently AI is capable of accessing vast swathes of available information and integrating it in such a way that AI appears to be creating something from scratch.

We’ve already detailed the impact this technology will have on the entertainment industry: creating videos/ movies/ commercials used to require  dozens of people (directors, actors, lighting technicians, sound technicians, editors, etc.) Courtesy of AI, ONE person can serve all of those functions.

Today, we’re going to assess the impact AI can have on other industries.

In the corporate world, AI can perform many tasks that previously required several people if not entire departments. AI can write an entire marketing piece and even create a visual advertisement for a product using a few words/ phrases entered by one user.

Interactive Investor recently used to AI to develop an entire online marketing campaign including thousands of ads and keywords. The results saw an increase in account creation and decrease in acquisition costs.

AI can do legal work as well, performing document review, analyzing contracts, and even preparing a deposition. There are now several examples of AI “legal assistants” located online.

AI can even alter business operations. Whole Foods has begun introducing “Just Walk Out” stores in which you simply walk in, take whatever you want from the shelves, and walk out. Sensors and cameras take care of the payment side of things.

The above examples of AI technology pertain to very different areas of the economy: making movies, performing legal diligence, shopping for groceries, etc. However, for investors, the implications of AI all boil down to just two items:

  1. Improving productivity (getting more results for less effort).
  2. Cutting costs (salaries, benefits, office space, etc.).

This is why AI is so exciting for the economy and investors. In a best-case scenario, AI will lead to a massive increase in profitability as revenues grow and costs decrease. And that is what has triggered a kind of mania for AI-related stocks: Nvidia, Super Micro Computers, etc.

The flipside of this is that AI is currently a kind of Wild West in which “anything goes.” There are no legal, legislative, or societal frameworks for this technology. As a result, advances are being made with few if any ethical considerations. 

We’ll be assessing those in tomorrow’s article.

In the meantime, if you’re interested in profiting from this technological revolution, we are currently putting the finishing touches on a special investment reporting that outlines some of the larger implications for AI as well as several of the most likely market leaders.
