"About technical analysis: Jesse Livermore was a genius stock trader who invented TA, kind of to justify his own decisions. There are some basic things the probably work most of the time, but so many people use it that I don't think you can…"

Lance Norskog commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Surprising Correlation Found in Covid-19 Data
"Yup, a joke from March: "the spread of coronavirus is mediated by two things: how dense is the population, and how dense is the population". The retail drug trade will drive the spread for a long time. Retail drug buys are based around…"

Lance Norskog commented on Filip Stachura's blog post COVID-19 Risk Heat Maps with Location Data, Apache Arrow, Markov Chain Modeling, and R Shiny
"Very cool! If you want to improve on this model, figure out which user clustering events represent taking an Uber or Lyft- these services have been shown to be major disease vectors."

Lance Norskog commented on Ramesh's blog post Deep Learning: Detecting Fraudulent Healthcare Provider using AutoEncoder
"Given that the base data is unbalanced, it might work better to create a balanced subset of the input or fabricate new inputs with a more balanced ratio. A simple autoencoder is just garbage-in-garbage-out. An alternative would be a…"

Lance Norskog commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Covid-19 Modeling: Impact of Missing Data and Ignoring Key Features
"Actuaries have been calculating death rates for insurance companies for 150 years, and they're pretty good at it by now. It should be possible to compare the projected&actual death rates in a community/congressional district, and impute the…"

"Great story. This is in line with a Bezos trait: he likes to find people who have excelled at something. Anything, doesn't matter what. "She won a national spelling bee! Isn't that cool?" The process of doing something like that…"

Lance Norskog commented on William Vorhies's blog post Binge Watching “The History of Artificial Intelligence”
"Cool! Did it cover the "AI winter" and why it happened? (Rampant overselling of expert systems to Pentagon types.)"

Lance Norskog commented on Stephanie Glen's blog post Understanding Covid-19 Statistics (in plain English)
"Generally, humans are immuned after infection by all of the "common cold" Coronovirii (I think there are 4?) for 6 to 9 months. That's why you get it every winter. So, we're looking at yearly meltdowns like this until…"

"Could this be used to trim useless weights out of deep learning networks?"

Lance Norskog commented on Janardhanan PS's blog post Does "All models are wrong, but some are useful" quote apply to Machine learning models?
"More useful is- "no model is perfect, so you must have a back-up plan". I saw a company deploy face recognition for commercial truck fleets, to verify the driver sitting behind the wheel. The system had no back-up plan for that one guy who…"

"A couple of points: 1) the quality of today's NLP machine translation. Basque is a language isolate, very very isolated, like almost no other language. I just read an article from a Basque newspaper that Google auto-translated. It was very…"
