What provides support for the technology sector is mainly the update of ChatGPT. The exponential growth of its users, from application to computing power, will also ignite infrastructure demand.

From the perspective of the sub-sectors of the science and technology sector,

1. Directly related to OpenAI, aka, $Microsoft (MSFT)$, has increased by nearly 10% in the week. At the same time, it announced at the developer conference on March 16 that it will embed ChatGPT into Offices, which will greatly change the current work efficiency of people;

2. In the semiconductor industry related to infrastructure, there are a large number of individual stocks and chip giants with a single week increase of more than 6%$NVIDIA Corp(NVDA)$ $Advanced Micro Devices(AMD)$ $Intel(INTC)$ are leading the gains, the market expects that deep learning with AI will accelerate the expansion of computer performance, and the computing power used for AI training will double about every 6 months;

3. Equipment and material infrastructure companies related to this, such as$Applied Materials(AMAT)$ $Lam Research(LRCX)$ $KLA-Tencor(KLAC)$ And so on also achieved an increase of more than 6%;

4. The software industry will also benefit in general, because the efficiency after embedding AI will be greatly improved, for example$$ $Intuit(INTU)$

5. Companies that provide information services may lose some market share or be replaced to a certain extent because of the addition of AI, so the market feedback is more negative, such as$Accenture (ACN)$ $IBM (IBM)$ $Fande Information Technology (FIS) $$Gartner (IT)$.
