It’s hard enough being an investor when one disruptive technology comes along and changes the playing field. But when disruptive technologies converge, they open a whole new way for investors to dodge, dive, dip and duck a landscape that’s hard to predict.
With technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), electric mobility and blockchain converging and transforming the way we live and do business, making informed investment decisions is a full-time job. Investors need access to reliable, current and well-researched information – a map to guide them through the rapidly evolving landscape so they can make sense of it all.
But how do you chart disruption?
That’s exactly what New York-based Global X has done.
A pioneer of thematic investing, the company’s research team partnered with a panel of hand-picked experts from across academia, the consulting industry and the investing world to explore the disruption dynamic.
Their combined efforts resulted in “Charting Disruption” –a report that identifies the macro trends driving the disruption convergence as well as critical developments for 2022 and beyond.
The new report contains unique data sets, surveys and analyses accompanied by predictions and forecasts. Acknowledging that the nature of disruption lends itself to a degree of unpredictability, “Charting Disruption” harnesses professional expertise and rigorous research to anticipate long-term structural changes that are key for investors to understand.
AI and robotics will revolutionize work and accelerate productivity
One of the biggest disruptive technology convergences is between robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
In “Charting Disruption,” Erik Brynjolfsson, professor and the director of the Stanford Digital Economy Lab says that technological advances and broader adoption of AI could result in an explosion of productivity.
“I would make the case that artificial intelligence is the most general of all general-purpose technologies because we use our intelligence to solve all the other problems in the world,” Brynjolfsson says in the report.
