The index weighting is determined by our proprietary formula based on analytics and our expert rankings. The index was constructed as of January 1st 2017 and is rebalanced quarterly. Out of our global artificial intelligence companies list, the most influential companies are being selected by our Scientific Board and Strategic Board by assessing the disruptive and strategic potential, the underlying AI technology, perceived risk and expected returns on the basis of a weighting of several characteristics of the prospective company.

Are we overestimating China’s AI capabilities?

In February 2018, the FT published an article outlining ‘Why we are in danger of overestimating AI’, arguing that ‘considerably more work is needed before we can reach the long-dreamt-of moment when machine intelligence matches the human variety’. By 2030, just 11 years from now, China has vehemently expressed its ambition to ‘lead the world in AI’. Is this a realistic ambition, or has China become entirely conceited in the midst of its new-found wealth and growing economic muscle?

Online AI Education

Will a robot take my job? How is artificial intelligence likely to change my job in the next ten years? Where are AI technologies being used right now and where will they be used next?

The online certificate program "Artificial Intelligence Introduction, Ethics & Finance" is for anyone interested in learning more about artificial intelligence. Comprised of eight sections, chapters one to six shed light on various aspects of AI, including definitions, neural networks, machine learning and societal implications. Chapters seven and eight are dedicated to people working in finance. No programming, but some basic math is required. Some exercises also require you to draw with a pen and paper to find the answer to the question.

The completion of the course is estimated to take from 50 to 80 hours in total. You can do the course at your own pace, but we recommend trying to finish in 8 weeks (in our experience, having a deadline makes it more likely students will finish the course). We expect it will take approximately 5-10 hours to finish each part of the course. Some exercises require a lot of thinking, drawing on paper and going back to the theory part so they can take up to 45 minutes. You will also find lots of links in the course and looking at these will also add to the time needed.

A combined quantitative & qualitative approach.

Combined Quantitative & Qualitative Analytics

Our proprietary scoring algorithms are analysing the quantitative side of the AI universe by looking at the market environment, the financial health and the momentum of each company in it's space and also benchmarked with its peers and competitors. For example, if a company is acting in an environment with a lot of tailwind, it is easier for it to grow and attract customers, partners and investors, leading to a better scoring. Also, a strong and reputable investor base makes it easier for companies to access further funding from a financial health perspecitve. Social media- , customer- , partner- and news momentum are other important aspects, each of them always in correlation to the peers and the sector in general. Employment momentum is another important indicator for the scoring of companies.

Our international team of scientists and experts is providing qualitative input based on their research and scoring. The AI Market Intelligence Platform provides them with insights to the biggest database of AI companies that are shaping the future of AI. It provides them for example with information about development of patent filings, innovation degree, number and quality of published scientific papers, development of job openings, the overall size and strength of each company's internal AI teams, etc. just to name a few datapoints. They are looking at the AI competence in general, the ethical positioning as well as the market environment from an innovation and expert point of view.

A combined quantitative & qualitative approach.

We typically work with financial institutions, investment and asset managers, family offices, HNWI and qualified investors to provide them independent and in-depth market intelligence to identify single investments or to create an entire product portfolio. These can be either public companies with AI expertise or venture capital or private equity backed private companies from any geographic area in the world.
