After the device failed as a consumer item, Google started marketing it to industry, where it’s actually showing signs of becoming useful. In healthcare, for example, it can help doctors and nurses with the high-stakes task of dealing with myriad patients and getting all their details right.

The bafflement arose because before he joined Google GOOGL last October, he was a sometimes-critical outsider who had written stories about the company for nearly two decades. "It all felt very strange," Sullivan told CNBC of his early days inside the company.

The artificial-intelligence revolution is coming, whether you're ready or not. AI supporters believe that it has the potential to transform the world as we know it; Google CEO Sundar Pichai describes AI as "more profound than ... electricity or fire." Indeed, PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that artificial intelligence could become a massive $70 billion market by 2020. So which stocks are pushing the boundaries of technology and capitalizing on this booming industry?

Mr. Rupczynski said the deal would give AT&T immediate infrastructure and more data and could give marketers “more leverage” in dealing with Google and Facebook.

The technology sector accounts for more than 30% of the S&P 500 Index, the largest percentage since the tech bubble peak of 1999, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for it to get bigger and for the stocks in the sector to outperform.

According to Sorensen, what could drive the outperformance is an increase in capital expenditures on the part of corporations, which may boost sales of tech providers.
