On today’s show we talk to the founder of ETFmg, Sam Masucci.  Sam’s company is responsible for bringing the first Artificial Intelligence ETF onto the market.  The name of the ticker is AIEQ, and since inception in OCT 2017, the fund has outperformed the S&P 500 by nearly twice the yield (as of July 2018).  During our discussion with Sam, we ask him about the deep learning methodology and how the programmers integrated IBM Watson technology into the logic.  Additionally, we talk to Sam about another artificial intelligence ETF called BIKR, which was designed and launched by the legendary investor, Jim Rogers.
