Intuitive Surgical: Setting the gold standard in robotic surgery

ROBO Global index member Intuitive Surgical continues to drive the healthcare robotics revolution, and investors are taking note.

2019: The Year AI Comes Alive!

Heading into 2019, investors are being plagued by a laundry list of concerns. And while many of the major issues worrying the market have been addressed (the perception of complacency has been flushed out; interest rates are heading back to normal; and Powell has given doves hope even while signaling lower growth, pending inflation, and the need to be data dependent), now is the time to focus on investing—and staying invested—in the future growth of what has been called the most important ...

3 Reasons Investors are Turning to Robotics & AI

"The most unloved bull market in history” has continued to barrel forward, and its age alone has many investors worrying about what’s just around the corner. I get it. On August 15, the bull market became the longest in recent history—and that was more than a month ago. Last week we watched the Dow climb another 2.25% and the S&P 500 rose 0.85%—now up more than 300% since March 2009. And though the NASDAQ was down just a touch, it was still within an arm’s length of its August peak...

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...

READY TO INVEST IN ROBOTICS? YOUR TIMING COULDN’T BE BETTER

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...
