A Thousand Foot View of Machine Learning

December 31, 2009

Since I plan to spend a fair amount of time on this blog talking about machine learning, I thought it would make sense to give a basic introduction to what in the world machine learning is. From the outside, people seem to think it’s some kind of magic. In this post, I will give a brief introduction to the principles in machine learning, highlighting the way machine learning researchers frame problems and how the algorithms they develop work to solve these problems.

Hello everyone,

My name is Jason Victor and I am the managing member and founder of Awwthor Technologies, LLC. I started my little company during my senior year of college in order to bring machine learning technologies I had been developing as a student to market.

Now, with inspiration from fellow blogger Quantivity, I am starting this blog to let the world know a little bit more about me and the research I’m doing.

I have pretty unique views on investing and on machine learning, and I hope to use this blog to open up a constructive dialogue with the community. In the articles to come, I will likely range from rants about technical analysis to philosophizing about markets and mathematics to cold scientific analysis of the research I’ve been doing. Stay tuned.
