REMEMBER THE TECH BUBBLE? TO AVOID A REPEAT PERFORMANCE IN ROBOTICS & AI, DIVERSIFICATION IS KEY

As the stock market has slowed in recent months, more than a few investors have begun to wonder: Are we in the next bubble for technology stocks? It’s a worthy question. All it takes is a brief look at the history of the stock market to understand why the alarm bells are ringing. At the height of the tech bubble in 2001, 4 of the top 7 market-cap leaders were technology companies.

Renishaw is manufacturing the future of 3D Printing

When I say that I work in robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence (RAAI), the first things most people think of are humanoid robots (think Star Wars), AI (think Alexa), or self-driving cars (think Tesla). But the spectrum of RAAI transcends the obvious. ROBO Global index member Renishaw, the oldest and perhaps boldest player in the world of 3D printing, is just one example. Established in 1973, the company is transforming the application of additive manufacturing—more commonly called...

With nurses in short supply, eldercare robots are coming to the rescue

A shortage of nurses is already taxing an already stressed healthcare system, and there’s seemingly no end in sight. According to the American Nurses Association, there are currently about three million nurses in the US—about one million short of the number that will be needed to provide sufficient care for the fast-growing population of elderly men and women requiring care in the next five years alone. Dr. Manish Kothari, President of SRI Ventures and a ROBO Global strategic advisor, see...

Even in a down market, the robotics trajectory is up and away!

Investing in a down market requires a higher level of due diligence. While it can feel a bit more daunting, if you’re aiming for long-term gains, you can actually find yourself in a sweet spot—especially if you’re able to identify opportunities that are poised for growth, no matter what the state of the market overall. If you’re seeking a buy low/sell high opportunity (and, quite frankly, who isn’t?), the first place to look may be the exciting and fast-growing universe of robotics. ...

Shark Tank’s star investor Mark Cuban was spot on when he stated that, “the world’s first trillionaires are going to come from somebody who masters AI and all its derivatives and applies it in ways we never thought of.” His audience at Austin’s popular SXSW Conference back in March may have trusted his opinion, but only a handful likely understood why that statement is so true—and why that reality may make today the perfect time to invest in robotics. Clearly, Cuban has seen the...
