Talk of artificial intelligence conjures images of Robocop and the Terminator for many people; of robots taking the jobs of humans or, worse, attacking them. But artificial intelligence is engrained in our lives, whether it’s the algorithms showing us relevant adverts in a social media feeds or computers scanning vast databases of information to find a medical diagnosis. And these fund managers think we’re only just at the beginning of this trend.

Johan Van der Biest, manager of the Candriam Robotics fund, says: “Forget about the robots you knew in a factory 10 or 15 years ago, that were difficult to program and had to be caged. We are tapping into megatrends that won’t be affected by economics or macro events, and that can’t be derailed by politics or Covid.”
