As I was writing A peak at Natural Language Processing I excluded the “spoken language” component of NLP to simplify certain arguments surrounding this sub-field in AI. A couple hours later I remembered a discussion I had with a friend many years ago. He had been looking at new services via the web [...]

NLP – NLU – Computational Linguistics – Text Mining – Automated Understanding – Information Extraction – This field has many names.
First of all – we are not talking about Neuro-Linguistic Programming! Sorry…
The World Wide Web really made obvious the difficulty of the problem of understanding of unstructured data. Information (let us not even [...]
Michael Gospatrick wants help, specifically to further the research area of meta genetic programming. I found his web site – Ideas for Genetic Programming when I was browsing Technocrati’s Artificial Intelligence tagged articles.
I am all for genetic programming, but I am a little concerned that he is addressing his problem (find a cure for [...]
There are a lot of difficult problems out in the real world which require massive computational power to solve. Problems in genomics, scheduling, drug design, weather and the stock market. IBM refers to the class of tools required to address these complex problems Deep Computing. Basically, Deep Computing is the intelligent application [...]
I have been doing a lot of searching recently for information on WordPress and consistently have run into a useful blog called Semiologic written by Denis de Bernardy. The title is actually Semiologic – Denis de Bernardy on Artificial Intelligence, which should be a good clue about what many of the posting are about. [...]
Exploring advanced techniques and technologies for the analysis of and trading in the stock market.
Okay, so I am using the term AI, as in Artificial Intelligence, to describe the broad set of tools and techniques that help enhance human intelligence. I want to highlight methods drawn from a wide spectrum of research areas that can [...]
I am no expert in creativity, but most people that I speak with about the analysis of the stock market seem to have a very narrow sense of the possibilities. Perhaps it is the tools and software that have a heavy concentration on all the “standard” indicators – from the world of technical analysis [...]
How much of today’s stock market conventional wisdom is actually self-fulfilling prophecies. The study of price action in charts is an activity that permeates all aspects of the markets – stocks – bonds – commodities. Do the “rules” that traders extract from the study of charts evolve from continual positive feedback – prophecy [...]
I recently finished an interesting book: Calculated Bets – Computers, Gambling, and Mathematical Modeling to Win by Steven Skiena is a very interesting look at (does the title give you a clue?) managing money in the face of uncertainty. Gambling and the financial markets have a good deal of similarity when trying to decide [...]
