One of the most notable success stories on Wall Street in 2017 is the AI Powered Equity ETF, an exchange-traded fund that uses artificial intelligence technology to select the stocks it holds. “We were absolutely surprised by the degree of interest,” said Art Amador, co-founder of EquBot LLC, which sponsored the fund. “We launched with $2.5 million in assets and were hoping to get to $40 million by the end of the year. Instead, we got that within the first week and now we’re north of $70 million. It blew our minds.” Read the original story from MarketWatch.
