ROBO Global, the creator of the first index that tracks robotics, automation and artificial intelligence (RAAI) stocks, has expanded its advisory board to include well-known roboticist Daniela Rus, the director of MIT’s groundbreaking Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Library (CSAIL).
Rus, an Engelberger Robotics award-winner, joins a team that identifies potential constituent stocks for the index.
The index assesses companies in twelve sub-sectors incuding energy, consumer products, food & agriculture, 3D printing, security, healthcare, logistics and manufacturing.
“Our advisory board is comprised of some of the brightest minds in robotics, automation and AI to ensure that our indices and investment strategies deliver exposure to the leading companies in these fields,” said ROBO Global US CEO Travis Briggs. “Dr Rus’ extensive experience studying and educating others on robotics and AI will perfectly complement the expertise of existing board members, further enhancing our ability to aggressively monitor these emerging technologies and ultimately, help investors capitalize on their rapid growth.”
As the head of CSAIL, Rus helps lead research and outreach for research in the fast-developing converging areas of robotics and computer science.
“The ROBO Global advisory board is a dream team of robotics and AI professionals who are on the front lines of these disruptive technologies,” said Rus. “I look forward to contributing to such a powerful, knowledgeable team of industry experts and working with ROBO Global’s management team to help capture the potential of computer science and AI for investors.”
ROBO Global provides its expertise to the US-listed Robo Global Robotics and Automation exchange traded fund (NYSEARCA:ROBO) which closed nearly 1% up to US$41 Tuesday.
