Is Self-Driving Truck Stock TuSimple a Buy?

The low-hanging fruit of autonomous driving would have to be semi trucks. They’re predominantly driven on highways which present fewer challenging conditions than city driving. They ply the same routes, over and over. (Nearly 80% of truck freight goods hauled in the U.S. are moved via 10% of the nation’s trade corridors.) And the shortage […]

5 Robotic Manufacturing Companies for Smart Factories

We’re still a long way from the robot revolution and subsequent technological singularity promised by futurologists, science fiction writers, and overcaffeinated dorm-room philosophers. That said, robotic technology has come a long way since Honda’s (HMC) advanced humanoid robot, ASIMO, embarrassingly fell down the stairs back in 2006. We humans are so confident in our ability […]

Bionaut Sends Robots into the Human Body to Treat Disease

It may sound like science fiction, but there was a time when people were optimistic about the future. Perhaps no other decade embodies that optimism than the 1960s, though maybe it was all of the psychedelic drugs. Still, we made it to the moon, and sci-fi shows like “Star Trek” offered an inspiring vision of […]

AMP Robotics Amped Over AI-Powered Recycling Robots

We recently wrote about the nascent and unprofitable carbon capture market – and suddenly it seemed like everyone was talking about how we need new, scalable technologies for removing and recycling CO2 into everything from energy to cement. It didn’t hurt that Mr. Elon Musk happened to announce the same day that he was putting […]

Why The Future of Robotics May be Four-Legged

Every so often, social media throws us a bone. To welcome in the New Year, Boston Dynamics decided to make their robots dance. And dance they did. Even His Holiness Elon Musk took a break from his 17-hour workday to share this amazing piece of video with social media. One commentator on Twitter rightly wondered […]

Why We’re Trimming Our Gains in Teradyne Stock

In the age of Instagram influencers, authenticity has been increasing in value as an asset. Authenticity is about saying what you think and then seeing who happens to be attracted to it. In the finance world, that hasn’t traditionally been the norm. You’re always putting on dog-and-pony shows that attract new clients while convincing existing […]

Reviewing Two Autonomous & Electric Vehicle ETFs

In our recent piece on 13 Artificial Intelligence Trends for Investors to Watch, we noted that the transformational benefits of autonomous driving are still 10 years away. That’s good, because we still haven’t figured out what investments we ought to be making to get a piece of the $7 trillion dollar-autonomous vehicle opportunity. Last week, […]

Four LiDAR Stocks That Debuted in 2020

You don’t need to be educated in a particular topic to speak knowledgeably about it. All too often, educated people who should know better say daft things like, “Elon Musk’s net worth plunged $16.3 billion Tuesday, the largest single-day wipeout in the history of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.” This non-news headline should read “Elon Musk’s paper wealth fluctuates rapidly […]
