Training Neural Networks tutorial
I’m releasing an interactive tutorial suitable for either individual learning or in the context of a class wherein each student, or pair of students, has a computer. I used it for my third-year psychology university students. Before beginning the 100-minute class, most had little idea how connectionist networks could store memories or compute visually guided action. By the end, they were happily rewiring their networks to encode new memories or accomplish new actions. It’s all made possible by the free, beautiful, and easy-to-use Java-based neural network simulator SimBrain that I blogged earlier.
SimBrain comes with a large number of tutorials, but these are designed for an entire course on neural networks. I needed one that could fit a single 90-minute class, so I created my own, which are basically just modifications of the great content they already released. I’ve posted the network files to be used with SimBrain, plus the instructions, here. The instructions are broken up into several separate webpages. Each one ends with an exercise for the students to try. The subsequent webpage discusses the answer to the exercise a bit. During the actual class we teach, we prevent the students from proceeding immediately to the subsequent webpage by password-protecting the pages, and giving them the password after they’ve made an effort. I might be able to provide access to that version upon request. Let me know of any problems, and whether you find the tutorial useful.

To all businesses offering to teach you to trade2009-03-31 21:29:08 by proioxis
You are frauds. Charging someone $3500 to teach them basic technical analysis they could learn from a book from is atrocious. Then you take their money to set up an account (another, what, $5000?) and offer them leverage so they can lose the money faster.
I'll give you a hint: jumping in and out of stocks all day is not the way to make money.
As for all you so called "trading firms," go find a convenient hole to crawl into. Preferably to die.
Adding daytrading to resume??2006-10-16 17:57:09 by jason56789
Can anyone suggest a few bulletpoints to add daytrading to my resume?
I'm not sure how to "sell" my daytrading experience on the resume so that it will be meaningful to resume screeners, or a potential employer.
I can explain more, but in general I use a combination of technical and fundamental analysis to identify trades or longer term investments. I favor smallcap stocks, ususally in the biotech or others "technical" sectors. I also look at special situations, like companies that are in bankruptcy that have a decent shot at a successful restructuring.
Many thanks in advance!
