EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES: TO HYPE OR NOT TO HYPE?
Every year we see new lists of breakthrough technologies with immense disruptive potential. Most of such technologies never make it to the next year's lists & fade into obscurity, yet a few do help bootstrap new successful companies or transform existing ones.
How do professional investors track & evaluate the potential of emerging tech? How do they detect hype & what corrective action they take to steer their portfolios? How do they evaluate their performance? Do they make decisions on whether a new technology is good or evil?
