Want To Rule The World? Invest In AI

When I first came across the above quote several years ago, it struck a nerve and stayed with me. Putin, of course, isn't alone in making this prediction. Many other world leaders and influencers have made similar predictions. And as the years passed, all evidence points to the validity of this prediction.
In this article, I will review the growing recognition of the importance of AI in politics and business, as well as the publicly traded equities which should benefit from the rise of AI.
Recently, Henry Kissinger, at 97 years old, has declared himself a student of AI, saying:
It is fascinating not only economically, but also philosophically, because it will change the nature of human thinking about reality, which will affect all of us."
Old fox Kissinger has been studying AI for a while now. In November 2019, Kissinger made some powerful predictions. Artificial intelligence, he said, "is bound to change the nature of strategy and warfare," but many stakeholders and decision-makers are still treating it as a "new technical departure."

The 2021 National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence delivered an uncomfortable truth: the United States is not prepared to defend or compete in the AI era, and must act now!
