The AtonRâ Artificial Intelligence & Robotics is a long only, USD-based, actively-managed certificate. Thanks to increasing computing power and big data, artificial intelligence (AI) has been expanding at a fast pace, with notably major advances in the fields of natural language processing and computer vision.
The development of the Internet of Things and of standard operating systems for objects and devices could give another massive boost to AI applications over coming years. With this, smart cars, smart homes and smart factories could become reality sooner than expected.
Specifically, collaborative robots could be a major field of application as software recreating the human thought process combines with mechatronic devices gradually becoming able to replicate the five human senses. Robot adoption should benefit from falling costs and from increasing labor costs in emerging markets that make them an attractive ROI proposition.
