San Diego-based Analytics Ventures, a venture studio fund focused on artificial intelligence companies, launched AlphaTrAI on Dec. 10.

AlphaTrAI is a trading platform that combines artificial intelligence with trading. In three years of back-testing results, the system outperformed the Standard & Poor’s 500. The company is moving to live, real-time trading to further validate its technology.

A team of scientists with background in computation physics, signal processing and financial markets have been building the technology behind AlphaTrAI since 2016.

"AlphaTrAI consistently outperformed top hedge funds during back testing due to the proprietary end-to-end trading algorithms which provide superior event detection, price prediction, stock selection, and trade execution," Analytics Ventures Managing Partner Navid Alipour said in a news release.
