Rule Learning in Neural Networks

Exam topics: mini-dissertation in human-computer interaction 2012
for five learning rules

These are the topics students chose for their 2012 exam papers, which took the form of a research proposal. I can’t give out too much detail, but wanted to share this with the class.

If you’re interested in connecting with one of these students based on their proposal, contact me.

A research proposal on the use of computer vision for improving consistency, product quality and user satisfaction in the food and dining sector

Production of high quality products and top grade food products is the key to building and obtaining a successful business. In the food and dining sector, restaurant owners need to ensure they serve top quality food to their clients and continue to explore methods to ensure client satisfaction and loyalty by offering them top quality foods with consistency in taste and looks. Serving inadequate or spoiled food can result in client loss and jeopardize the success of their restaurant. We therefore propose to develop a computer vision system for automated quality and consistency checking as well as automated client satisfaction analysis. Tasks to perform will include the gathering of quality food samples in the form of images taken from an active restaurant environment and to train an artificial intelligent neural network to classify both food quality and user emotion. The final product will be an automated system for quality and consistency evaluation, food quality evaluation, and ensuring client satisfaction.

Shortly after going public on Friday, shares of BATS were halted, after a series of technical glitches and system errors that affected trading in Apple and other companies. Several hours later, BATS pulled its public offering, a rare move for a company.
The exchange has also been clouded by an ongoing S.E.C. inquiry into its technology systems and trading strategies. BATS disclosed in a February regulatory filing that it had recently received a "written request" from the S.E.C.’s enforcement division, which was seeking documents and information about its ties to "certain market participants." The agency is examining the relationship between the exchange and high-frequency trading firms.

Online broker service (which is best??)

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who is especially happy (or unhappy) with their online broker service (i.e. e-trade, etc...)
I'm trying to determine what would be best for someone looking to invest approx. $10K and won't be trading everyday (and thus won't use any of the premium heavy trading online platforms).
I'm looking at e-trade, scottrade, and ameriquest and from the looks of it scottrade seems the best by far?
any oppinions or firsthand feedback much appreciated.

Criminal cheaters fuck themselves in the ass!

Serves you right, fuckers!

The initial public offering of a computerized stock exchange turned into a major debacle on Friday as a software glitch sent its shares plunging to a fraction of a cent in a matter of seconds, leading it to scotch the IPO.
On Thursday night, BATS had priced the sale of 6.3 million of its shares at $16 apiece, for a total offering of over $100 million. But when shares started trading on Friday morning on its own exchange, they instantly plunged and trading was halted.
Within nine-tenths of a second from that opening, BATS stock had fallen to about 28 cents, according to Nanex, a stock-market data tracker. Within 1.5 seconds, the price bottomed at...

High frequency cheaters

Federal securities regulators are examining whether some sophisticated, rapid-fire trading firms have used their close links to computerized stock exchanges to gain an unfair advantage over other investors, people familiar with the matter say.
The wide-ranging probe, being handled by the enforcement staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, is focusing on the computer-driven trading platforms of exchanges, including BATS Global Markets Inc., the people said.
The SEC probe illustrates a bigger push by regulators to examine less-transparent parts of the securities markets, such as the fast-growing area of so-called high-frequency trading. High-speed trading firms use powerful computer systems for rapid-fire trades, in which they often hold stocks for only fractions of...

The SEC already has determined

2009-07-07 07:38:18 by Lapis_Philosophus

That they will do nothing about automated trading platforms. They have no interest in regulating them whatsoever
The Securities and Exchange Commission believes institutional money managers are “sophisticated” enough to trade against the machines without further regulation.
“We don’t want to curtail liquidity,” said Gene Gohlke, associate director for the SEC. Gohlke said it’s up to the managers themselves to make sure other traders aren’t manipulating their models.
