Turing Technology Associates, a technology and intellectual property company headquartered in White Salmon, Wash., with research facilities in Princeton, N.J., has appointed to its new advisory board 14 thought leaders from the fields of technology, academia, investments and business.

Founded in 2016, Turing was named by its founders in honor of Alan Turing, a brilliant British mathematician now acknowledged by many as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence (AI).

Like its namesake, Turing Technology says it seeks to design innovative solutions that redefine an industry. Among them is the Hercules Database that captures real-time daily holdings and portfolio weights of actively-managed mutual funds, the Ensemble Active Management (EAM) Portfolios and the Downside Volatility Management (DVM) Portfolios.

Alexey Panchekha, president and co-founder of Turing, said in the news release announcing the company's new advisory board that his firm sought innovators in their respective fields who could advise Turing in its ongoing mission to turn the improbable into the possible.

“As Turing continues to drive innovation into the world of investment management, having access to the expertise and experience of this amazing group of professionals, who are all game changers within their respective fields, is a luxury I never anticipated when we launched Turing three years ago,” he said.
