Neural Networks and Statistics

User Spotlight: Mark van Heeswijk, Aalto University

Today we are putting a spotlight on Mark van Heeswijk, a postgraduate researcher at Aalto University in Finland.

Heeswijk’s main research interest is in the field of high-performance computing and machine learning. In particular, how techniques and hardware from high-performance computing can be applied to meet the challenges one has to deal with in machine learning.  His current work consists of training multiple neural networks, each on their own GPU.  The particular models used in this work are a type of feedforward neural network, called Extreme Learning Machine (ELM).

How CULA has helped

“Using the CULA library, the training and model structure selection of the models can be accelerated. The training can be expressed in terms of CULA operations (with some trick to avoid needing the matrix inverse which is not part of the CULA basic package). The parallelization over multiple GPUs is achieved by combining mex-wrapped CULA with the MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox, and binding each of the MATLAB workers to

1. This loan will provide the necessary capital to purchase software, marketing materials and entrepreneurial educational tool taught by master entrepreneur and CEO of Nouveau Riche University, Jim Piccolo. With the ability to now focus full-time as opposed to free-time I expect to increase my income to a respectable $1,800/month.
2. Seriously folks, this loan will be used to take my Forex Trading Strategy, which is working very well, to the next level. Look at the picture in the listing. Over 150% profit in 13 days of active, 24 hour, automated trading using my software. (Turns out never traded for real money)
3. This loan will be used to help me invest 10k into a forex managed account investment fund. I am a good candidate for this loan because I am investing my own money...

No Loss Trading Plan that really works for your.

Are you in the Dallas, TX area? I have a trading plan that is non speculative, non directional, and generates a very high rate of return. It works everyday - all the time - with no losses - (yes) it "really" works. I have been trading the financial markets for 30 years and I understand exactly what I am doing. As a demo, I started trading a friends Forex account of just $6,000.00 on 12/20/07 and I generated a 100% return in just three weeks using leverage with no losses. Luck was not part of the success. A properly funded brokerage account will never have losses. I know it sounds unlikely but I can demonstrate and prove it "is" true. It took me most of my life to develop this technique and it did not come cheap to me. I call it my zero sum no loss trading plan and it will beat any...

$2000 for an online course huh. If it works for you. A few weeks is really good to actually begin to profit in live trading. Staying consistant over the long hual is the trick now. That takes discipline. Avoid the blowout sessions where a trader chases good money after bad trying to recoup losses. Or greedily jumps into a trade with little research.
I home schooled myself over about a year period. I didn't have the money to trade at the time so it really didn't matter. I was content to learn and save till I had it. I had some expenses that was a priority over forex. When I did have the extra cash not swallowed by life I had been profiting for over 6 months on paper and the transition to live was relatively seemless.
I'm getting nice returns now for almost a year live. From...
