Demystifing Artificial Intelligence
Everybody speaks about AI, but it is a difficult topic to grasp and understand. 42.cx has been formed to demystify Artificial Intelligence and bridge the gap between AI as one of the greatest growth opportunities and the technical complexity of AI in general. The global AI market is expected to grow from $8.1B (2018) to $105.8B (2025).
We track more than 110 million patents, 200 million scholarly articles and 110 million source code repositories worldwide to identify the greatest investment opportunities based on 42.cx research created by an international team of scientists and experts. The most promising public AI companies are being selected and form the AI-42 INDEX™, an index dedicated to express the growth of the AI sector.
We also believe that the ethical framework and principles upon which individuals, organizations, institutions and society itself embrace AI will define us. Consequently, we are equally committed to the ethics of AI as we are to the technology and its adoption. The 42 Online Academy is the starting point to gain knowledge about AI and to understand the various aspects of AI, including definitions, neural networks, machine learning and societal implications. Dedicated blocks for finance are available, too, and provide everyone in finance the knowledge to understand how to identify AI investment opportunities or to distinguish between “managing assets with AI” and “managing AI assets”. The 42 Online Academy is offering multiple online certificate programs for everyone who is interested in AI, starting from a general introduction of Artificial Intelligence over AI & Ethics to AI & Finance. 42 also provides individual research and advice in public and private AI companies across all industries to financial institutions, private equity funds, venture capital funds, investment managers, family offices and qualified investors.
Our name was inspired by the The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, where the number 42 is “The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”, calculated by an enormous supercomputer named Deep Thought over a period of 7.5 million years.
Our internal database, which is based on years of data collection from a multitude of data sources, allows us to systematically scan the universe of AI opportunities for the best investment opportunities. It is an important information platform for us to screen AI opportunities.
