Social Complacency Model of Personal Privacy – The Faulty Discourse

Something I learned during my graduate studies is that jails – like the old Don Jail as it once existed in Toronto (photographed by me above) – has special significance among those that study the history of people with disabilities.  For one thing, there are many people with disabilities in jail – sometimes placed there because there…See More

Pattern Recognition Objects and the Internal Conception of Meaning

A candlestick chart is sometimes used by stock market technicians to make trading decisions.  Each candlestick graphically depicts the following prices simultaneously:  opening, closing, high, and the low.  An interesting question is whether candlesticks can be used for pattern recognition purposes.  Traders directly interpret the charts - applying a type of pattern recognition that might involve industry norms and personal judgment.  But I mean using a systematic or algorithmic process. …See More

Letting the Market Do the Managing

For some organizations the title might not be too meaningful, but it is meant to emphasize a conceptual point.  The managers in an organization do the managing.  They do this at least theoretically by managing resources – including people.  Then in the end, if fortune is smiling, the markets will adhere to the game plan, and the company will succeed.  However, companies routinely fail, creating products and services that the markets don’t care to purchase.  They sometimes use methods that don’t…See More

Applying Noise Reduction to Stock Market Data

I don’t believe the issue of stock market noise has received much attention from professionals in the investment industry.  I am uncertain if it is much of a topic even among traders.  It certainly wouldn’t be unusual for noise to be discussed among data scientists.  Consider the implications of the suggestion that some trading days provide better guidance than other days – and that analysts should be focused on days that contain less “noise.”  The quality of one’s guidance becomes dependent on…See More

Wrongness of the Nogs

Recently, I encountered the mystery of a stock trading algorithm that habitually makes the wrong investment decision.  It is usually wrong 55 to 60 percent of the time.  This algorithm makes use of simulated traders – usually a thousand of them.  Each trader is triggered to do buy and sell orders using a purely technical approach – that is to say, by analyzing the price.  I call the simulated traders that make money “the Nogs.”  By definition, all of the Nogs are winners.  However, every winner…See More

Designing Data-oriented Processes

An important part of my job - which I don't recall ever learning in school - is designing data-oriented processes. I can program in a number of computer programs. Writing a computer program certainly involves designing a process. Many people have the experience of being at a line-up - perhaps at an airport or cashier. At some point, somebody designed that line premised on how people would be processed. A web designer might create an online registration system for students that wish to enroll in…See More
