Re: RIP

RIP. This has done the rounds again since Bush's passing. It still deserves to be shared as a lesson in politics and the fighting for the great good. Dear Bill, When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, ...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

I saw something on Linkedin that I liked - this is rare so I thought I would share. If you see something written in Python is probably Machine Learning. If you see something written in PowerPoint it is probably AI. Personally, I dislike if/if not/else logic inside Python for loops. Maybe it doesn't...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

Q How much of the software approach is innovative in the sense that you attempt to design the core algorithms and load-balancing software yourselves.  Do you avoid trying to ‘piggyback’ on external  libraries to do the hard number-crunching and just writing simple front-ends (for example, in Python...

Re: Lord of the Rings Forum Poll Request

Should read: Writer wants to raise his flagging book sales as no-one wants to read his blog. What a poor excuse for an article.

Re: Parodies for Traders, Programmers, and Scientists

Some of my faves from a simpler time. I have freely edited where I didn't like the scan/metre.  "City Fever" With appologies to John Masefield I must go down to the city again, where the quotes are high and wide, And all I ask is a long position with no risk of downside. When the phones ring, the pr...

Re: Parodies for Traders, Programmers, and Scientists

We were supposed to have had the 'Best of' for the magazine's first ten years. (rmax, didn't you contribute something?) But we had some illness issues here that meant it didn't happen. If someone wants to pick the "Best of the Forum" then I'm sure we could run it in the magazine! I remember I did w...

Re: Parodies for Traders, Programmers, and Scientists

Interesting reading the thread 10 years on from some of the initial stuff. I remember writing the one in  November 2008. Was it *that* long a ago. There is some good work here. I hope Paul does a "Best of Wilmott Forums" and these get published. Proceeds go to help pay off the 39 bn brexit bill...of...

Re: What is Politics?

You should be ashamed of yourself for not knowing!  But apparently some people do care. When it comes to Brexit, Remoaners are more likely to listen to celebs than Brexiteers. The latter don't care what celebs think, and have minds of their own. This is the best things I have read all day - but onl...
