Each day, humans create about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data (FYI: there are 18 zeros in one quintillion). By 2025, we will generate about 185 times more data.

AnalytixInsight is a pure play AI/ML firm, against a backdrop where investors do not have many publicly traded small cap stocks to benefit from this secular theme.
