There are several noteworthy “pure play” AI stocks, but these high-growth options might also bring significant risk. To avoid this, one who is bullish on AI might focus on existing tech behemoths that are working on artificial intelligence projects—either behind closed doors, or to complement their other businesses.

For example, Facebook FB and Twitter TWTR use AI to improve the user experience.

Amazon AMZN, Apple AAPL, IBM IBM, and Microsoft MSFT have all developed natural language, virtual assistant programs.

Alphabet GOOGL uses AI to improve search results, and Salesforce CRM uses it to improve customer relations platforms.

Some of these projects are consumer facing, while others are R&D projects existing outside of the public view. Either way, these tech behemoths help investors gain some exposure to the budding AI industry.

Similarly, AI powerhouse Nvidia NVDA has added an artificial intelligence focus to its business model, which once focused almost exclusively on the gaming industry. Now, Nvidia’s high-end GPUs are being used in super computers and massive data centers where machine learning programs are thriving, making Nvidia one of the top AI stock picks on Wall Street.
