Artificial Intelligence is an area of computer science that focuses on the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Artificial Intelligence funds potentially stand to benefit from increased adoption and utilization of artificial intelligence, including those involved with industrial and non-industrial robotics, automation, 3D printing, natural language processing, social media, and autonomous vehicles.

Just this week, Softbank announced its second megafund to invest into technology companies developing artificial intelligence technologies around the world.

Artificial Intelligence funds are funds that meet at least one of the following three criteria:

  • They are funds that specifically invest in companies involved in the development of new products or services, technological improvements in scientific research related to artificial intelligence, or
  • They are funds that have at least 25% of portfolio exposure to companies that spend large amounts on artificial intelligence research and development (R&D) expenses. Examples of such companies are Amazon, Tesla Motors, Apple and Alphabet.
  • They are funds that use artificial intelligence methodologies to select individual securities for inclusion into the fund.
