Learning Math For Machine Learning And Artificial Intelligence Programming

After the author of this article stated about machine learning:

I’ve found that many online courses say you don’t need much mathematics fundamentals to be a programmer, but inevitably, even in beginner courses, the underlying math was important to understand what was going on.

He turned to Khan Academy and a tutorial service call Yup. I can say the same when you start your journey on machine learning.

Here is the article I mention here

A great Quora response for a similar question:

As a wall street quant, how deep do you understand the mathematics behind quantitative finance?

One thing that happens in Wall Street is “argument by mathematical intimidation.” So someone hands you 20 pages of greek formulas, and you have to understand the math well enough to go through those 20 pages, and say “this is crap” and explain to an MBA with no math ability why those equations are garbage.

Which way do you go? Is the underlying math all that critical to understand machine learning? Let me know.

Also, 2019 will be the turning point year with my most recent trading signal announcement:

Wow Bryan,

Absolutely, amazing!

Brilliant package. I am telling all my friends about Quantlabs..

Just waiting to save cash after the dental.

This is THE year!

I am now thinking of keeping these real time signal up for my highly successful crypto currency trading up for a few days. Get the details and offer here:

Programming numerical trading methods in Python

There are so many free courses to learn about Python and numerical trading analysis. Here is one example

Programming Numerical Methods in Python

The question is: How do you apply this to your trading?

As we all know, Python is a very versatile language. I already posted in the past in how Google’s new Tensor Flow 2 will focus on this language with even GPU (graphical processing unit) processing.

Do realize that this current LIVE Python trading infrastructure course covered many of the these topics a few weeks ago. I even covered how to use this type of technical analysis for effective algo trading a few weeks ago. Who knew? Starting tonight, we get into a week’s worth of crypto learning including the amazing wrapper to connect to over 130 global crypto currency exchanges.

Just remember we are doing live sessions every Monday and Thursday until the third week of February.

As all this content comes together, I want you to jump into while you can! We are just past half way in this LIVE course but you can always catch up regardless of your trading or programming level. People seems to like the style of how it works. The price will definitely go up after the completion of this course.

Python Algo Trading Infrastructure with Crypto Currency

Also, the recent testing of my real time signals have produced 121 positions since Friday Night. The strategy is running at a 82.2% win ratio with a total of 10.91 % return. The entire crypto asset class has been severely down so those numbers are pretty decent. I will be moving the new code into the Linux to see how it runs. I also need to add the new nightly reset code as well. Too many changes happening all at once but it seems pretty stable.

Are you interested in this signal service? If so, click here to get tagged into the early bird list.

I am readying this ‘level’ for you try out. As I said last week, very few people will get access to this new service for the highly success crypto trading strategy I explain above

5 Free R Programming Courses for Data Scientists and machine learning Programmers

I am quite surprised R is being promoted as a language ofr machine learning and data research. According to the latest Tiobe Programming Language Index, R is placed at 15 while other popular programming languages are in the top 10. The most notable is MATLAB where you would think it would wither to die. MATLAB has a lot of relevance still but this free R course might be of interested to you.

Here are some of the article highlights:

R burst into the scene with its powerful support for stats (linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, …) and graphical techniques, but in recent year, it has gained a lot of popularity among Data Scientist and Data minors.

Along with Python, R is the second most popular language to learn the new world of Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial intelligence.

Intro to C++ Programming – For beginners to help machine learning

 

This programming language is the fastest out there which is used widely in the banking and algo trading fields. It is also quite popular in speeding up machine learning techniques.

https://www.techworm.net/programming/introduction-c-plus-plus-programming/amp/

Java is not the way for algo trading and machine learning

if you are into Java and machine learning, you might want to hear what Saraj Raval who does a popular Youtube channel, he says that Java is an old language which he dislikes. He also compares it to when you learn first programming languages in your computer science class. I sort of agree considering where we are in the industry.

As an example, you could look the Alexa.com stats for Dkkascopy which has dropped from 30k to 45k roughly over the last year. Why the drop? I believe it is because the only API available for DUkascopy is Java with JForex. They may want to add Python at some point.

Speaking of Dukascopy and Python, you could check out Oanda’s ranking which is at 3.9k roughly since they added Python a few years ago. Also, they are much more popular than Interactive Brokers (12.2 ranking on Alexa) which has an added wonky Python support but still have C++ support as well.

C++ is the future vs Java for sure when it comes to machine learning and algo trading.

interactive brokers eliminate $10k requirement

Remember that Interactive Brokers has eliminated their minimum $10K requitement.

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/08/interactive-brokers-as-they-eliminate-10k-requirement/

As you an imagine, this makes my Interactive Brokers valuable now! I plan to add new content to it as I explore the Python options for my strategy. I no longer need to support Oanda nor Dukascopy options as we I have worked on earlier this year. It is straight to what I call the end game of Interactive Brokers for my ultimate global broker!

This is how serious Microsoft is taking Python now to mebed it into Visual Studio.

 

https://www.theregister.co.uk/AMP/2018/07/20/microsoft_visual_studio_code_python/

 

I hardly see any languages from supporting Microsoft or any of their technology like .NET or SQL Server anymore on social media! I do think they are slowly becoming irrelevant compared to open source and their cloud competitors like Amazon AWS. Also, I have not even dare to mention any of their weird lockdown, backdoor potential with Windows 10, or any other bad corporate practices.

In order to enhance your future, you might want to look at Python as well especially if you are interested in topics like machine learning or algo/systematic trading.
