Robots, autonomous cars, AI, cloud computing,….. List goes on for the hype words of our time. Byt the hype is real. Technology has always been changing the world. I see that investing in these sectors will outperform SP500 for next ten years. Future is here now.
There are basically two ways you can capitalize on this development.
You can invest in companies that develop these “future” technologies
