The best sector for long-term investors?

Editor’s note: “The best sector for long-term investors?was previously posted in June 2023. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.

Everyone is talking about AI these days, and with good reason. In the coming years, artificial intelligence will forever reshape every aspect of our daily lives.

But hardly anyone is talking about the top-secret technology that will fuel the AI ​​boom.

Basically, AI models are like cars. They have an “engine” – the computer on which the models run. And they have “fuel” – the volume of data on which the model is trained.

Obviously, the better a car’s engine is and the more fuel it has, the better and farther the car will drive.

It’s the same with AI.

The better an AI model “engine” (computing power) and the more “fuel” it has (data), the better the model will perform.

The top-secret technology I’m referring to affects everything radically enhancing the computing power of AI models.

And Bank of America’s head of global thematic investments, Haim Israel, said this technology could create “a revolution for humanity bigger than fire, bigger than the wheel.

That’s because this technology will essentially drive everything in the emerging age of AI.

What the hell am I talking about?

Two words: Quantum Computing.

What is Quantum Computing?

I’ll start by saying that the physics behind this breakthrough, quantum mechanics, is very complex. It would probably take over 500 pages to fully understand.

But, alas, here is my best work in making a 500-word version of Cliff’s Notes instead.

For centuries, scientists have developed, tested and validated the laws of the physical world, known as classical mechanics. These scientifically explain how and why things work, where they come from, and so on.

But in 1897 JJ Thomson discovered the electron. And he unveiled a new subatomic world of super-small things that didn’t obey the laws of classical mechanics… not at all. Instead, they obeyed their own set of rules, which have since come to be known as quantum mechanics.

The rules of quantum mechanics differ from those of classical mechanics in two very strange, almost magical ways.

First, in classical mechanics, objects are in one place at a time. You are either at the store or at home, not both.

But in quantum mechanics, subatomic particles can theoretically exist in multiple places at once before being observed. A single subatomic particle can exist at point A and point B simultaneously until we observe it. And at that point, it exists only at point A or point B.

Thus, the true “position” of a subatomic particle is a combination of all of its possible positions.

This is called quantum superposition.

Second, in classical mechanics, objects can only “work” with things that are also “real”. You can’t use an imaginary friend to help you move the sofa. Instead, you need a true friend.

Weaving

But in quantum mechanics, all those probabilistic states of subatomic particles are not independent. They are entangled. That is, if we know something about the probabilistic placement of one subatomic particle, then we know something about the probabilistic placement of another subatomic particle, which means that these already super-complex particles can actually work together to create a super-complex ecosystem.

This is called quantum weaving.

So, in short, subatomic particles can theoretically have multiple probabilistic states at once, and all those probabilistic states can work together – again, all at once – to accomplish their task.

And that, in a nutshell, is the scientific breakthrough that stalled Einstein in the early 1900s.

It goes against everything classical mechanics has taught us about the world. It goes against common sense. But it’s true. It is true. And now, for the first time ever, we’re learning how to harness this unique phenomenon to change everything about everything…

This is why the US government is pushing forward the development of a National Quantum Internet in Southwest Chicago. He understands that this technology could be more revolutionary than the discovery of fire or the invention of the wheel.

Could not agree more.

Mark my words. Everything will change in the coming years due to quantum mechanics and some investors will make lots of money.

Quantum Computing will change the world

The study of quantum theory has led to enormous advances in the last century. This is especially true in the last decade. Scientists at leading tech companies have begun to figure out how to harness the power of quantum mechanics to create a new generation of supers quantum computers. And they are infinitely faster and more powerful than even today’s fastest supercomputers.

And indeed, Haim Israel, chief research officer at Bank of America, believes that: “By the end of this decade, the amount of calculations we can do [on a quantum computer] it will be more than atoms in the visible universe.

Again, the physics behind quantum computers is very complex, but here’s my shortened version…

Today’s computers are built on the basis of the laws of classical mechanics. That is, they store information about what is called bitwhich can store data in a binary way as “1” or “0”.

But if you could turn those classical bits into quantum bits… qubits – to take advantage of the overlap to be stores both “1” and “0” at the same time?

Also, what if you could exploit entanglement and make all multi-state qubits work together to solve computational taxation problems?

Theoretically, you would create a machine with so much computing power that it would make today’s most advanced supercomputers look ancient.

This is exactly what is happening today.

The possibilities behind Quantum Computing

Google has built a quantum computer that affects 158 million times faster of the fastest supercomputer in the world.

It’s not hyperbole. This is a real number.

Imagine the possibilities if we could massively create a new set of quantum computers that are 158 million times faster than even the fastest computers of today…

Imagine what AI could do.

Today, AI is already being used to discover and develop new medicines and automate manual labor tasks such as cooking, cleaning and packaging products. It is already being used to write legal notices, create advertisements, create movie scripts, and more.

And that’s with artificial intelligence built on top of classical computers.

But built on quantum computers, computers that are 158 million times faster than classical computers, artificial intelligence will be able to almost everything.

The economic opportunities at the convergence of artificial intelligence and quantum computing are truly endless.

The last word

Quantum computing is one of the most underrated and most transformational technological innovations after the Internet.

In fact, it may be bigger than the internet or even the discovery of fire itself.

We agree.

We believe the best stocks at the convergence of AI and QC have a realistic opportunity to climb 1,000% over the next few years alone.

One of the best picks in the space? Open AI – the startup that kickstarted this whole AI boom with the launch of ChatGPT in November 2022.

OpenAI built industry-leading AI technology on top of classic computers. Within a few years, we think the technology will be transferred to quantum computers. When it does, OpenAI’s AI models, which can already answer any general question of the universe, will be able to transform the world in ways we can’t yet understand.

Unfortunately, OpenAI is a private company and only venture capitalists are able to invest in this top AI startup.

Luckily for you, though, I’ve discovered a “loophole” that allows regular investors to take their stake in OpenAI today for a few hundred dollars.

And this loophole is as safe as buying shares on the stock exchange.

Learn all about it.
