Stetson University Investment Program to Hold Public Trustee Meeting

The Stetson University’s Roland George Investments Program (RGIP) Public Trustee Meeting will take place Oct. 30, allowing students to present their stock recommendations for approval by the RGIP trustees.

Following the Cannabis, Virtual Realty 4, and Drones 9 indices approved in past years, RGIP students will launch a new index focusing on artificial intelligence. Considered to be a rapidly developing technology, artificial intelligence is the use of computer algorithms to attempt to replicate the human ability to learn, reason and make decisions.
