In the ever-evolving business world, one truth is now evident: adopting cutting-edge technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based solutions is no longer an option but an absolute necessity. AI is transforming how businesses perform, interact, and compete in the digital landscape, opening up unprecedented opportunities. This blog will explore why companies should seriously consider investing in technology and AI in their digital strategies.
Efficiency Translates Into Profit
AI can automate complex and repetitive processes, often generating errors, allowing people to focus on high-value-added activities. This leads to a significant increase in operational efficiency and reduced wastage of valuable resources. A more efficient company can deliver services faster, reducing delivery times and improving customer satisfaction.
Customization At Scale
AI can quickly analyze large amounts of data and automatically understand customer behaviors and preferences. This allows companies to deliver highly personalized experiences, increasing loyalty and higher conversion rates. Customers expect tailored experiences, and AI makes this personalization possible at scale.
Accurate Forecasts And Informed Decisions
Advanced analytics and machine learning enable companies to gain more precise predictions and insights into market trends, consumer behavior, and business performance. This helps executives make more informed decisions based on accurate data rather than guesswork.
Competitiveness On The Market
Companies that embrace AI and technology position themselves advantageously on the market scene. They can adapt quickly to new challenges and opportunities, staying ahead of competitors who must fully exploit the potential of technology.
AI fuels innovation through new applications and creative solutions. Companies that invest in AI develop a culture of innovation, as they are constantly looking for better ways to use cutting-edge technologies to meet customer needs and exceed their expectations.
In an era where technology is revolutionizing every aspect of business operations, adopting AI and technology-based solutions is not only a wise choice but a necessary move to ensure long-term success. Companies that embrace technological innovation can deliver extraordinary customer experiences, make decisions based on accurate data, and maintain a significant competitive advantage.
Who Should Invest In Artificial Intelligence?
First, before investing in general, you need to have put your relationship with money in order. This means having acquired the habit of calculating your income and expenses and – if you are in a phase of life in which you accumulate money – having acquired the ability to have an acceptable savings rate, at least in the order of 10%. %. Finally, it is necessary to have an emergency fund that covers 6 months and 24 months of your ordinary expenses based on the uncertainty linked to the receipt of income.
Having done this, the decided majority of the financial portfolio should be invested in the financial markets, i.e., with a widely diversified portfolio that can be obtained with ETFs. The balance between bonds and shares will be chosen based on one’s objective capacity and psychological tolerance to financial fluctuations. A reader, following reading the previous article, wrote to me that he has never invested in financial markets before and thinks that the topic of artificial intelligence is an excellent opportunity to start.
I replied to him that I consider this choice of his to be dangerous and that I strongly advise him against investing in artificial intelligence. Investing in specific themes (such as artificial intelligence, but it also applies to other pieces such as robotics, genetics, etc.) is suitable for investors who already have some experience with the fluctuations of the financial markets. The more specific the investments, the riskier they are. Since they are more complex, much more financial awareness is needed.
In summary, they only invest in the artificial intelligence sector for experienced and knowledgeable investors. Those who feel they need to gain better experience in the field should only invest in broadly diversified ETFs or seek the guidance of an independent financial advisor with specific expertise in the sector.
Why Invest In Artificial Intelligence?
The most crucial aspect the investor must clarify with himself, and possibly with his advisor, is what he wants to obtain from such a specific investment idea. What is he attracted to? Are you perhaps attracted by the possibility of “multiplying” the money invested? There is nothing wrong with this, but it is essential to understand that where there is the possibility of multiplying capital (meaning, by this term, returns greater than 100% in the space of five years), there must also be the possibility of having fluctuations adverse over 70%.
By investing with individual securities, in the abstract, you must consider losing even 100% of the invested capital. The role of such a specific investment, for a mature investor, is to provide, together with an additional return potential to the overall portfolio (which can also be obtained simply by increasing the percentage of the volatile component), some form of intellectual gratification and psychological.
It is beneficial to mentally associate investments of this type with the part of savings dedicated to building up capital for your young children or for when you retire if you are still young enough. That is, associating mental labels that allow us to distance ourselves a little from seeing the title day by day. When investing in such topics, it must be clear that it takes decades (usually a couple) for the new technology to unfold its full potential within society.
Furthermore, using small components of very volatile instruments has an educational function. It allows the investor to familiarize himself with the volatility of the tools, seeing not only the negative aspects but also the potential. Artificial intelligence (as well as other investment topics) can play a role within a well-constructed investment project, but – as always – the starting point is to clearly define why you want to invest, both in general and specifically.
