Machine learning/artificial intelligence – Machine learning algorithms have become more prevalent in recent years in financial markets. Classifiers (such as Naive-Bayes, et al.) non-linear function matchers (neural networks) and optimisation routines (genetic algorithms) have all been used to predict asset paths or optimise trading strategies. If you have a background in this area you may have some insight into how particular algorithms might be applied to certain markets.
Hi – I’m an architect with an investment bank at wall street. I want to start on quants and I want to sign up. Before that I sign up want to know more about your membership. Can anyone with basic knowledge work with the material in the site?
I am unsure of your background. This stuff is not a trading system out of a box. If you have decent software development skills, you should be able to understand this stuff. I am unsure of your tool preferences if you don’t mind .NET, Matlab, and R, then these are tools I use. Do you have a decent math ground? This is quant as it ain’t easy no matter who you talk to or get sold by. Let me know more about your background and I can be more precise.
