Smart data and artificial intelligence (AI) are closely related technologies that offer a range of investment opportunities for those looking to capitalize on the growing trend towards data-driven decision-making. Smart data refers to data that is collected, processed, and analyzed in a way that generates valuable insights and enables better decision-making, while AI involves the use of machine learning algorithms to analyze data and make decisions. The demand for both smart data and AI is expected to grow as more businesses and organizations recognize the value of leveraging these technologies to improve their operations and gain a competitive advantage. We believe that companies that are able to effectively collect, process, and analyze data, and that have strong AI capabilities, will be well positioned to benefit from these trends. In addition, we believe that companies with a focus on data privacy and security will be particularly attractive, as concerns around data protection continue to rise.
