“To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information.
What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework.”
– Warren Buffett
We started Upside AI in 2017 on the belief that technology will make better investing decisions than humans over the long term. This is because machines are unbiased, unemotional and unaffected by market euphoria and panic.
Our mission is to bring the most sophisticated investing technology to you and maximize your upside.
