Please briefly describe your background:

I'm 37, a lifelong programmer, and have been building forecasting tools for timeseries data since 2002. I learned about neural networks in a Wolfram class and have used them on financial data along with regression and gradient decent. I also took the Stanford online "Intro to AI" and "Machine Learning" classes in the fall of 2011. I run an investment firm called Apt Capital and a small venture fund called Beta Fund.

Please briefly describe your interest in artificial intelligence:

I'm particularly interested in learning additional techniques for dealing with timeseries data that is very noisy, sparse, continuous, high-dimensionality, and partially observable. I am also interested in natural language processing, and inferring sentiment from text. This is a newer area for me.
