APPEN ANNOUNCES FULL YEAR EARNINGS UPGRADE

QUOTE
Appen Limited (“Appen”) (ASX:APX) a global leader in the development of high-quality,
human annotated datasets for machine learning and artificial intelligence, has today
announced an increase to its full year earnings guidance.

The Company’s full year underlying EBITDA for FY2018, ending December 31st 2018, is
estimated to be in the range of $62m to $65m (at A$1=US$0.80). Previous guidance was
for underlying EBITDA in the range of $54m to $59m.

Appen’s improved FY2018 earning forecast is driven by a sharp increase in monthly
revenues, largely from existing projects from existing customers. The Company’s full year
earnings are susceptible to upside or downside factors including timing of work from
major customers and Australian dollar fluctuations.

Thanks jacsar,

Future work will fall into one of three categories, says Robert Hillard, managing partner, Deloitte Consulting.

"Firstly, people who work for machines such as drivers, online store pickers and some health professionals who are working to a schedule," Mr Hillard says.

"Secondly, people who work with machines such as surgeons using machines to help with diagnosis, and thirdly, people who work on the machines, such as programmers and designers."

- and, for the rest, men will wear Hi-Viz and the women will go to meetings

.... the future's not certain, that's for sure

APX Appen Ltd
QUOTE
Scouring the world for ways for its global clients to play the AI theme, Citi analysts identified the ASX-listed Appen, a little-known company that is a global leader in the development of high-quality, human-annotated data for machine-learning programs.

What does that mean? The company is "well positioned" to help global tech firms, such as Microsoft, to develop voice-activated interfaces and to improve internet search quality.

"We expect voice-based human-machine interaction to grow materially through improvements in natural language processing," the Citi analysts write. "We see the technology industry as being at a tipping point with the emergence of voice digital assistants (for example, Amazon's Alexa) and expect Appen's language resources division to benefit from this."

The Citi analysts quote research suggesting that by 2019, 20 per cent of all user interactions with the smartphone will be via smart assistants.

Updated chart.

FWIW - Bell Potter recently gave their key picks in the local tech sector and according to them their picks, in order of preference are
1. CGL Citadel Group
2. TNE TechnologyOne
3. SEN Senetas
4. APX Appen

Not sure if BP has has any vested interest in any of these stocks - i.e. received commissions on CR's etc, so as always DYOR
