EVERYTHING HAS CHANGEDWritten by Ophir Gottlieb
It's coming. It's a colossal shift -- a fundamental change. It will impact almost everything: communication will be revolutionized, entertainment will explode, business structures will be transformed.
It is one of the revolutionary themes, one of the fundamental shifts coming in the very near future that will change how we live, work, and play.
Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), International Business Machine (NYSE:IBM) and China's Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) are already in.
Google acquired deep learning research group DeepMind for half a billion dollars in 2014. IBM acquired AlchemyAPI last year and Apple made two acquisitions in just four days. The next "big thing" is Virtual Reality --it's larger than anyone is forecasting, and the winner will not be any of the companies we just listed above.
This is the opportunity so many investors say they welcome -- say they search for. The opportunity to find the "Next Apple," or the "next Google." Friends, it's coming right now, and it lies in the depths of technology's core. It's the artificial intelligence and deep learning engine, the hyper fast computing speed enabler.
The market for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will be absolutely explosive. Together VR/AR are projected to hit $150 billion in yearly sales by just 2020, according to a study by digi-capital:
VIRTUAL REALITY MARKET
Those numbers are too small. Goldman Sachs told Bloomberg:
This technology goes well beyond games and visual pleasure. The results will be disruption and innovation on a scale that can only be compared to the most revolutionary technologies of the modern era: the car, the plane, the phone, the computer, the Internet. This is the next step in human evolution. Macquarie Bank wrote:
WHY IT'S SO BIG
We can sit in the same room as a family member 10,000 miles away. Have a meal with anyone we know at any time in any place. We can sit on the 50-yard line at the Super Bowl. We can sit front row at the State of the Union. We can visit Mars, be an airplane pilot, go to an African Safari.
Further yet, we can treat anxiety disorders, phobias, even expand the reach of education and further children's imaginations, even adult imagination. Not to get crass, but even sexual encounters will be possible from anywhere at anytime. Touch, the physical sense, is now possible. Here's a little image from MIT:
It's that real. Sight, hearing, and touch have already been conquered.
Virtual and Augmented Reality technology is moving so fast, that when we're with someone miles away in a VR experience, it doesn't look like a video game or animated rendering, it's real. If you've never experienced it -- go to a demonstration and feel the enormity of these realties within 15 seconds. It's that powerful and it's that obvious, that quickly.
We listed a number of tech giants above, all acquiring companies, producing software and hardware, innovating as quickly as they can. But all of them, every single one, is totally and utterly dependent on the back bone of VR -- and that is computing speed.
VR is now "here again" for one very simple reason. One technology company has finally broken the barrier in providing the enormous computing power to make all of these grand statements a reality. What the public, you and I, will not tolerate is a rendering of our augmented or virtual realities that isn't absolutely 100% real. As a populace we no longer have the patience or interest in graphics that look like the 'Atari.'
We want it real -- not a rendering of real. And that is now possible. It isn't Artificial Intelligence, it's Artificial Superintelligence.
WHY THIS MATTERS
This is just the surface analysis. There's so much going on with technology it's impossible to cover in one report. But, to take it a step further and to actually find the 'next Apple' or 'next FANG stock' we have to get ahead of the curve. This is what CML Pro does. Our research sits side-by-side with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and the rest on professional terminals, but we are the anti-institution and break the information monopoly that the top .1% have.
Each company in our 'Top Picks' is the single winner in an exploding thematic shift like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, drones, biotech and more. In fact, here are just two of the trends that will radically affect the future that we are ahead of:
That chart plots the growth in 4G usage worldwide and how it will grow from 330 million people today to nearly 2 billion in five years. This is the lifeblood fueling every IoT and mobile device on the planet and CML Pro has named the single winner that will power this transformation. Then there's cyber security:
Market correction or not, recession or not, the growth in this area is a near certainty, even if projections come down, this is happening. CML Pro has named the single best cyber security stock to benefit from this theme.
These are just two of the themes we have identified and this is just one of the fantastic reports CML Pro members get along with all the visual tools, the precious few thematic top picks for 2016, research dossiers and alerts. For a limited time we are offering CML Pro at a 90% discount for $10/mo. with a lifetime guaranteed rate.
