Autodidactic Funds
     Autodidactic I Funds LLC (AiFunds) is the investment management subsidiary responsible for The Tech Trader Fund, a fully autonomous hedge fund where investments are managed entirely by machine. The technology behind this is Tech Trader, a system which has been trading live for over 6 years with no human intervention. The fund itself was launched in late 2015. There are no tweaks, no updates. It is fully automated trading in the truest sense, unlike many "automated" or "AI" systems which may have a hundred scientists providing the actual intelligence behind the curtain. Excluding outsourced back-office, the creator of Tech Trader consists of only a single individual who is also the sole human in the firm.

     The subsidiary now also separately manages investments in blockchain-based tokens and ICOs, using a mix of both market analysis by Tech Trader and human discretion based on experience in the space as both developer and investor since 2013.

Autodidactic I     Imagine a fully self-sustaining company with no customers, products, or employees, a company that grows and generates revenue year after year completely on its own with no work done anywhere by any human being. Such a company already exists. Autodidactic I is a self-sustaining, autonomous company - where all revenue generation is automated by a fully autonomous AI and the humans can focus solely on creative endeavors. Our vision is to create effectively a creators guild, an environment where pure, unrestrained creativity can thrive without the taint of profit motive or outside pressure - a concept we call the Autodidactic Islands.
     The current team consists of primarily self-taught individuals each deeply skilled in multiple fields and disciplines. As such, we are constantly looking for others like ourselves who are equally inventors, creators, and artists at heart to join us in the vision behind the company. We believe the kind of projects we take on require the curiosity, hunger, and worldliness that only come from being genuinely interested in both programming and finance, math and literature, art and science, polymath and autodidact.
     We are constantly looking for like-minded individuals to join us, but please do not contact us if you only have interest and experience in one field. At a minimal, you have a solid foothold in each the financial (algorithmic trading, blockchain, autonomous hedge funds, etc), technical (coding, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, etc), and artistic (film, music, games, etc). A typical day can go from trading stocks and building AIs to acting out skits and composing soundtracks by ear. This is not an entry level position and not a specialized role. This is not an artist support group and not an accelerator to seed ideas. We are not here to save anyone, nor are we interested in anyone wanting to save the world. This is a team for those who spend every waking moment creating and experimenting. This is a ship for those wanting to see how far they can go and not just how long they can survive. We've built an engine that lets us tackle any project we can think of, pursue any idea we can dream of, and we’re looking for others who can take it even further, others who, like us, have a strong sense of adventure, a healthy level of insanity, and a genuine desire to take over the world... just because we can! Bahaha!

Note we are spread across the world and travel often. You may be in a different city almost every other week.
