AI Widely Used by Hedge Funds, AIMA Study Finds

Many hedge fund managers and other financial services firms have been using artificial intelligence (AI) to some extent for a long time. The arrival of ChatGPT’s generative AI (Gen AI) technology on the scene, however, has brought new focus on the disruptive power of AI.
