Neural Networks in Perl
The key lesson of this session, presented by Lino Ramirez, is that it’s all about empowering people. Perl gives us the power to empower people.
I really enjoyed the video of a tae kwon do match as a real-world analog of software development. Try one technique, see the result (get hit); try another technique, see the result (get knocked down); ad infinitum.
There are three phases: preparation, modeling, and implementation. These phases are not linear in nature. One moves between phases as necessary to design the solution.
PDL was demonstrated in the modeling phase. Brad was pretty happy when one of the slides contained a web site address for information on PDL, which happened to be a web server at his job.
As he delved into the case studies, I started to zone out, so I have little to say about his examples of machine learning and Perl in action. I wanted to enjoy this session more, since I’ve often wanted to get back into using neural networks and other machine learning techniques in my code. Unfortunately, I just found it too difficult to follow his case studies. Still, I have some good pointers for packages that will help me sprinkle some machine learning goodness in my code.
I like his conclusion: “Perl excels at empowering people in all three phases of the development of a machine learning application.” Perl is awesome for rapid application development, which in turn gets solutions to people who need them faster.

No Loss Trading Plan that really works for your.2008-01-18 20:41:56 by bfnnrgn
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...
