I am interested in learning how machine learning techniques can be applied to proprietary trading strategies, HFT, and finance. My specific interests are with collaborative filtering, k-means clustering, and random forests. Trying to improve my skills with R and Python. Also, looking to learn predictive statistics / analytics, and how to build data products using Apache Hive / Hadoop.
Greetings! I am an electronics engineer hailing from the defense world, now turned entrepreneur / quantitative engineer. Currently I am co-founder of a financial technology startup (www.peoplehedge.com) as well as an NU grad student in EECS.
