The amount of information—all information, but particularly financial information—will explode. This will make investing vastly more complicated. Don't worry: You'll have a digital avatar that will be able to hunt down opportunities according to your own specifications.
Like in the movie "Her," you'll have an assistant, and you'll be able to say, "Hey, Charlotte, I'm really worried about Thailand. Can you adjust my portfolio to lower my exposure?"
Answer: "Sure, I have just sold four companies that have high beta relative to Thailand."
Think Google partnering with Charles Schwab.
Your avatar will work only on your instructions, but it will likely be empowered to run on its own after it understands what you want. It's like a much-advanced Pandora. ... It will ask you what kind of songs you like after you pick a few, but at some point it will take over and just run a series of its own songs.

Of course, there are legal issues. If your digital avatar has some degree of legal creaturehood, they will want to be recognized (maybe a 2-and-20 hedge-fund performance fee for an AI stock whiz?). And their source code will need to be regulated.
But that is even farther off. Bottom line: You will have lots of help to make investment decisions.
