The World’s Largest Hedge Fund Is Building an Algorithmic Model From its Employees’ Brains

World's largest hedge fund is building an algorithm based on employees’ brains #AI

  • Deep inside Bridgewater Associates LP, the world’s largest hedge-fund firm, software engineers are at work on a secret project that founder Ray Dalio has sometimes called “The Book of the Future.”
  • The goal is technology that would automate most of the firm’s management.
  • It would represent a culmination of Mr. Dalio’s life work to build Bridgewater into an altar to radical openness—and a place that can endure without him.

Bridgewater wants day-to-day management—hiring, firing, decision-making—to be run by software that doles out instructions

Google’s new website lets you play with its experimental AI projects

How you can be a part of Google’s artificial intelligence research

  • Google is letting users peek into some of its most experimental artificial intelligence projects.
  • Play a few notes on a computer-connected keyboard and the algorithm plays a few notes of its own based on what you played.
  • Google is also posting the code for all the projects on A.I. Experiments on Github so developers can tinker around with tools themselves and is taking submissions from developers who have used Google’s tech to make similar applications.
  • Another experiment, called A.I. Duet, shows how artificial intelligence can be applied to music.
  • The site offers hands-on demos that allow you to interact with projects created by Google researchers that show off their AI technology.

Take a peek into Google’s experimental artificial intelligence research.

Artificial intelligence creates its own encryption

Artificial intelligence creates its own encryption #cybersecurity

  • Another neural network, Eve, was told to intercept the communication between Bob and Alice.
  • Eve did manage to decrypt a message, but once Alice and Bob caught onto her, they changed their methods and Eve could no longer crack the message.
  • Vendor Webcasts Activated Charcoal – Making sense of endpoint data
  • The experiment itself consisted of two neural networks, Bob and Alice, who shared a secret key.
  • Concluding, the researcher wrote: “In this paper, we demonstrate that neural networks can learn to protect communications.

Researchers from Google’s Brain division have released an academic paper which details how they were able to get neural networks to create their own encryption standard, and communicate between each other.
