The purpose of this paper is to illustrate that not only has A.I. become a reality in our day-to-day lives, but that it is already impacting investment portfolios as well as the investment process in many cases. While A.I. looks nothing like the doomsday scenarios portrayed in blockbusters, it can come in many different forms. Understanding the best opportunities to make use of this quickly expanding technology can be a challenge, but keeping a focus on the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ it is valuable is the clearest path to a successful implementation. In the vast majority of cases, A.I. either expands or improves upon processes that are already in use. While the mathematics and technical details behind an A.I. algorithm can be very complex, the fundamentals of A.I.’s value-add should be clear and interpretable.
