Maria’s Note: When our colleague Colin Tedards wrote that his six-year-old son can write as well as someone in college – with help from artificial intelligence (AI)… It struck a nerve with his readers.
If you don’t know Colin, he’s the new editor of The Bleeding Edge. Before joining, Colin built a devout following of 10 million viewers for his investment videos. And, at 1 p.m. ET, he’s going live with a free event about artificial intelligence.
AI is one of the top trends on Nomi’s radar today. So when we Colin’s essay crossed our desk, we knew we had to share it with you. Read on…
We’re seeing a huge shift that’s reshaping society not only today… but into the future.
Few people see this coming. And the truth is, most investors are going to be in complete denial that this shift is happening.
And that’s actually the exciting part.
The investors who understand what’s about to happen next will have a huge advantage over those that don’t. And believe me, there’s going to be many investors who miss out on this trend.
To fully grasp what’s happening, we’ve got to take a step back.
For the entire history of civilization you gained knowledge through time. This is fairly easy to understand as we just need to follow our own journey through the education system.
We all started out in kindergarten just learning how to tie our shoes… And over time we gained more knowledge.
More importantly, knowledge wasn’t an equally distributed asset. The more access and time you spent acquiring knowledge, the more you typically had.
This is evident in society not just among people, but across entire countries as well.
We’ve also always thought of intelligence as this rare, human-only trait. Again, one that we needed to develop and hone over a long period of time.
But guess what?
We’re entering a world where intelligence is as abundant as the air we breathe. Intelligence is turning into a commodity… Something like electricity, running water, or as common as the dirt on the ground.
In an essay I sent to my Bleeding Edge readers last week, I said my six-year-old son can write at a college level with the aid of an AI computer system.
What I wrote was a fact.
But it must have ruffled some feathers with readers, because the emails poured in – like this one from reader Charles B.:
Sorry to break the news to you, but your six year old son CANNOT WRITE as well as a college-age person!
I know it’s hard to wrap our heads around this now. But in a little more than a decade – when my son is finishing up high school – AI will be a better writer than nearly every human alive. In fact, that’s likely already the case.
So, what does this mean?
For starters, intelligence won’t be just something you’re born with or work years to develop anymore.
Countries that we often refer to as “Third World” or “developing” will have access to the same super-intelligence as developed nations.
Again, whether you like it or not, intelligence is going to become a commodity that will be available worldwide. Regardless of your age… where you’re from… and most importantly, how much time you’ve spent acquiring knowledge.
Now here’s the exciting part from an investor standpoint…
There’s an easy way to make money from these types of global trends. It’s the same method that worked when the combustion engine car was replacing the horse and buggy.
It worked as the internet was being built out to what we know it as today… It worked during the smartphone era… And it’s going to work again in the artificial intelligence era.
Or I think, more accurately, we should call this the Machine Intelligence era. This is where machines will hold more knowledge than humans.
You’ll make money during this era by investing in what I call “background stocks.” These are stocks that perform well no matter what company wins.
It doesn’t matter if Nvidia’s chips are used over Intel’s. It doesn’t matter if Microsoft’s AI ends up being better than Google’s.
These stocks win no matter what.
I want to teach as many people as I can about this method of investing. So I’ve set up a special event. It’s free to attend.
And it’s kicking off today, November 16, at 1 p.m. ET. You can join right here. I’d love to share more details with you at that time.
