At this evening's L.A. Futurist meeting the speaker was Mike Korns. He runs a company that develops artificial intelligence applications, particularly for automatic stock market investing. What is interesting is that we're talking about programs that more or less developed themselves, according to evolutionary computing models. Borrowing approaches from genetics. Natural selection, mutations and even sexual exchange of genomes. Basically, what nature does works very well, and has been found to work very well, also when modelled by computer programs. In this case, many gigabytes of program agents have been evolved, which demonstrate remarkable results in what they do. The Deep Green automated investment system has had an average of 23% gains per year over the past 10 years, which is better than any mutual fund out there.

I like buying 12 eggs instead of the ten I get here in Netherlands--where I expatriot...moreover, I can tell anyone how far away something is in miles (oh, it's about one in a half miles down the road) but they better not follow my instructions in kilometers or they will have a anxiety attack...
I must admit people, I wouldn't put too much in store with what I have to say on the subject If I were you...for I'm the guy who looked at the sky and moon in it, and decided it would take 7 fire engine ladders, standing on top of each other to climb up to the moon from Newark, New Jersey!
