Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a game changer in the investment world (and many other worlds, for that matter). In fact, one industry insider genuinely thinks it’s “going to be bigger than the internet” or smartphones.
Speaking at the CNBC Delivering Alpha Investor Summit in New York on Thursday, Altimeter Capital Chairman and CEO Brad Gerstner delivered a strong prediction for AI’s impact.
“AI is going to be bigger than the internet, bigger than mobile and bigger than cloud software,” Gerstner said. He added that AI’s ascension is part of a “super-cycle” not unlike the dot-com boom in the late 1990s/early 2000s.
“I’m very optimistic over the course of the next two or three years,” Gerstner added. “Why? Because we’re not going to continue to hike rates, and we’re at the beginning of one of the biggest tech booms in the history of technology.”
