The Latest Twist In HFT [High Frequency Trading]: Atomic Clocks

THE LATEST TWIST IN HFT(HIGH FREQUENCY TRADING): ATOMIC CLOCKS

July 11, 2016

Mr. J.K. shared this story with us, and I have to talk about it. In previous blogs I’ve talked about the growth of “dark pools” and HFT (high frequency trading) algorithms, where computers place trades on the stock markets and commodities markets, and a few pico seconds can mean whether a trade is placed or not, or whether a trade will be successful and profitable or not. Now, the latest twist, according to this article, is that atomic clocks are now to be brought into the picture:

Legendary Hedge Fund Wants to Use Atomic Clocks to Beat High-Speed Traders

Yes, that’s right, the rates of radioactive decay will be used to coordinate simultaneous trades in multiple markets:

The 16-page document was quietly published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in February. Replete with schematic drawings, the filing describes a novel way for “executing synchronized trades in multiple exchanges.” The invention consists of not only sophisticated algorithms and a host of computer servers, but atomic clocks — precisely calibrated to vibrations of irradiated cesium atoms — to sync orders to within a few billionths of a second.

And if it works as advertised, one of the most illustrious names in the hedge-fund business could gain exclusive U.S. rights to a weapon capable of thwarting even the most predatory of high-speed traders.

The application belongs to Renaissance Technologies, the ultra-secretive and highly profitable $32 billion firm founded by mathematician and former code breaker Jim Simons. And the lengths it’s been willing to go to build and patent its own computer-driven technology — at a potential cost of tens of millions of dollars — underscores just how big a threat high-frequency traders have become to the industry’s largest and savviest players.

As you might expect, I simply cannot resist some high octane speculation – or in this case, really way-out-there-in-orbit speculations – about this story. In the past, I’ve pointed out that HFT really is a kind of trading that is no longer reflective of genuinely human markets. After all, the 2010 Flash Crash showed us what can happen when a computer “goes rogue” and places trades that can literally drive down or pump up a stock or even whole blocs of stocks with no real reflection of their market value (AI anyone?). And for those wanting “the nightmare” scenario, think of that episode from the CBS television series Person of Interest, where a malevolent AI literally crashes the New York Stock Exchange, then miraculously shuts down its trades just before the NYSE’s “failsafe” systems kick in to suspend trading. And if you really want to speculate wildly, remember all those stories of UFOs shutting down, or worse, turning on, ICBMs in their silos and beginning the launch countdown. ETs, or AIs, take your pick, the bottom line is that HFTs provoke the philosophical debate not only of how secure digital systems are, and how well, or poorly, they reflect genuine market value and trades.

Breakaway Links Of The Week – June 20-26, 2016

Breakaway

June 27, 2016

Here are last week’s links.

If you have time to listen to one thing, please listen to the first interview/link below.  There is a plethora of information to glean from Former US Assistant Housing Secretary, Financial Expert and Publisher of the Solari Report Catherine Austin Fitts [Solari.com].  The incisive questions by Daniel Liszt’s regarding the troublesome issues we face helps set the stage for the myriad topics discussed.

In the current paradigm we are in, its important not only to keep abreast of all impending issues, but also be mindful of how things could likely play out based on historical precedents.  These two individuals are seeking to show others what the system is truly composed of so people can pierce the veil of lies.

The recommended read of the week would have to be Rappoport’s “Television News Illusion: “Reporter In The Field On Location” piece [NoMoreFakeNews.com].  This write up eviscerates what the MSM does in order to hook the populace and help further mold the establishment’s version of events when incidents play out.  Its really an thought-provoking read.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Stay safe.

Book Review – Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence & The End Of Human Era

There is a meaningful chance that at some point in the next few decades, intelligent machines that mankind is creating now, will kill us. That is the premise of James Barrat’s book Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era. Barrat’s viewpoint, however sobering and concerning, is important, especially when considered amidst the cheerleading and optimism from Ray Kurzweil and the Transhumanist movement who gleefully proclaim an enlightened and beneficial merging of man and machine in the near future.

To understand Barrat’s concerns, we must first understand the machine that is being built. We are all familiar, to some degree, with the concept of artificial intelligence (AI) and the types of programs that currently use it. AI is built into the microchip that controls the anti-locking brakes in our cars, so when we slam on the brakes on a wet road, the computer calculates all of the various variables to bring the car to a safe stop without skidding. AI is built into Google’s and Amazon’s search algorithms, so that when we search on a given term or review a product for sale, these sites give us highly refined search results and alternative product suggestions. And, AI is built into IBM’s Deep Blue computer which was built specifically to play chess and is so good that it has beat human chess champions on multiple occasions.

These are the examples of AI that we commonly know of today. And they are benevolent examples. They make our lives easier, and they provide helpful suggestions which enable us to more quickly find information or products for which we are looking. Certainly, this AI is not a threat to us. But, AI is very rapidly evolving, and it is the future versions of what these tools will grow into that cause Barrat to lose sleep.

As AI develops, it is increasingly becoming more sophisticated and taking on even more and more tasks. For example, 70% of all of the equity trading on Wall Street is done automatically by high frequency trading computers using proprietary trading algorithms. And the “Flash Crash” of 2010, which caused the stock market to fall more than 1,000 points in a 36 minute period, because high frequency trading computers over-responded to certain market signals, is evidence of the dangers we can expect from well-intentioned AI. The Flash Crash also illustrates that although the actions of any one AI machine may not be problematic, the interactions of multiple AI machines responding to each other can create unexpected and negative outcomes.

The Amazon and Google predictive search tools that we are using today, and IBM’s impressive Deep Blue chess machine, are examples of “narrow” artificial intelligence. They are programs designed to do one thing, or a limited number of things, well. They by no means have the capacity to replicate the broad and deep decision-making abilities of a human mind. But, that is coming. And that capability is what AI researchers and journalists refer to as AGI, or, artificial general intelligence. AGI machines will be impressive, and they will be able to do much more than the AI tools to which we are accustomed today. But AGI will inevitably and certainly lead to ASI, or artificial superintelligence. ASI represents machines that have the capability to think and process data hundreds or thousands of times more quickly than humans.

Artificial superintelligent machines will be very formidable. If given the initial capability to analyze their own software code and improve it, which is anticipated, they will self-evolve rapidly. Depending upon what goals they are initially programmed to complete, and whether any limitations are placed upon their own self-evolvement, Barrat sees a future where these machines evolve very rapidly. As they write for themselves new software code and, hence, new capabilities, it is not inconceivable that they will proliferate themselves onto other machines across networks like the Internet, culminating, perhaps, in their ability to control all computer processes on the planet. Such a scenario is not unlike the dystopian vision of Skynet presented decades ago in the Terminator series of action films. Because these machines will self-evolve on their own accord, and will operate at speeds that are larger than, and increasingly exceeding those of mankind’s own processing capabilities, they will evolve very quickly in a fashion that scientists are calling an “intelligence explosion.” The penultimate danger to mankind will be the merging of ASI thinking and processing capabilities with the physical attributes of nanotechnology, in which case these supercomputer processors will be able to construct their own devices and, possibly, weapons. Taken to the extreme, Barrat foresees even the possibility of nanotechnology-wielding AI building their own interstellar spacecraft and dominating not just Earth but also the galaxy.

Mankind has created inventions that have caused unintended harm and danger to the human race before. Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima are such examples. But what makes ASI uniquely so much more dangerous is its own inherent ability to evolve and improve on its own accord. With its ability to recursively self-improve, it will not be long before ASI machines far eclipse the capabilities of mankind. These capabilities can be for great benefit to mankind. Imagine if we took an all-powerful ASI machine and instructed it to come up with a solution for world hunger or a cure for cancer. Researchers are very hopeful about the amazing things that can happen when a superintelligent entity like that is put to work on currently intractable problems for which we have not yet found viable solutions.

The Transhumanist Scrapbook – If You Have Concerns About A.I. Read…

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
March 29, 2016

If you’re like Nick Bostrom, Isaac Asimov, or (not to put myself on their level), me, you probably have a few, nay, probably many misgivings about the idea of artificial intelligence and the coming “robot revolution.” Asimov, in his typically perspicacious way, explored the ethics and moral issues of artificial intelligences and robots in his sci-fi classic, I, Robot, which was made into a film version. There, as we know, VICKI, an artificial intelligence super-computer, takes over the world’s robots and bascially imprisons humanity. For some of us, following the weirdness in financial markets for example, the “dark pools” and algorithmic trading that now constitutes the bulk of commodities and equities trading is tailor made for all sorts of A.I. trouble. Even the popular American television series (one of my favorites, incidentally) Person of Interest explores not only the dangers of A.I., but of two such artificial intelligences battling it out with each other, with humanity caught in the middle. In one episode, the “evil” A.I. gives a little demonstration of its “powers” when it deliberately crashes the stock markets in mere seconds, and then, just as quickly, rectifies it. Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom has been sounding the warnings for many years about A.I.

Well, if the following story shared by Mr. A. is any indicator, Bostrom’s and Asimov’s concerns may be entirely justified:

New Sophisticated Humanoid Robot Declares “I Will Destroy Humans”

Consider just the disturbing implications about the new robot “Sophia” as outlined in this paragraph:

It is important to note several things that Hanson mentions.  Sophia first tells us that she would like to be “an ambassador” to humans, as well as to continue her evolution through formal education, studying art and eventually creating a business and having a family. Hanson explicitly states that Sophia will become as “conscious, creative, and capable as any human.” This statement is followed by a key mention of not having the rights of a human. This might seem absurd to the uninitiated, but this is a serious ethical discussion that has been taking place among “roboethicists.” This is all-but guaranteed to gain steam as robots are integrated in autonomous ways, whether it is on the battlefield, as self-driving vehicles (now programmed to sacrifice some humans over others), or certainly as they become visually and intelligently on par with human beings.  Even the mainstream Boston Globe addressed this more than two years ago, citing a 2012 paper from MIT.

At this juncture, the article goes on to mention the existence of – get this! – a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Robots, this in a society that chops up the unborn, sells their parts, harvests human organs, and makes people pay for the whole “privilege.”

Catherine Austin Fitts: UFO Economy 3.0 – The Black Budget Rockets Into Space

Source: Dark Journalist
Daniel Liszt
March 7, 2016

Join Dark Journalist as he welcomes back Former Assistant Housing Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts for Part 1 of their mind blowing examination of the intense secrecy surrounding the futuristic UFO Economy and Black Budget totalitarian domination over all activities in Space.

Drawing on her rich career in top positions in Washington and on Wall Street, Catherine carefully unravels the layers of deceit and misdirection inherent in the covert Deep State system of using public resources for developing new economic opportunities in space for the benefit of private elite corporate interests. She sees the real danger on planet Earth today of super advanced technology being in the hands of a small, unaccountable group of privileged insiders that consider themselves so above the law that they can kill with impunity whenever their greedy interests are threatened.

Secret Space Program

She traces the Secret Space Program from a historical perspective to the National Security Act of 1947 where enormous resources were handed over to covert operators to develop a Secret System of Finance. This eventually created the CIA and a select group that were in charge of advanced UFO technology, completely hidden from the public. By the time JFK came into office ready to challenge this shadow government and make the space program the centerpiece of his administration, the civil war between the Deep State and the public state was in full force.

After JFK was assassinated, the space program was eventually split into two aspects. One was a faltering, de-funded, accident prone parody of the original NASA that had put a man on the moon, and the other was a super-advanced, black budget funded, covert space marvel that helped develop a Breakaway Civilization for dominance in space using diverted public funds. This space program developed the SDI Star Wars Technology that weaponized space in violation of global treaties. The true mystery of this covert program is that it was likely developed not only to control life and resources on Earth, but also to confront an off-world UFO civilization that had been observed dominating our skies since 1947. Recently Former Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev confirmed that President Reagan had asked him for assistance in dealing with a UFO space threat.The split of the space program into two parts, one overt and the other covert, created a schizophrenic situation between the official reality and the hidden truth that is becoming more and more difficult to conceal as public awareness grows and the choke-hold of corporate interests and the National Security State are exposed.

Brave New Worlds

It now appears the entire dysfunctional economy of the globe is being organized to cope with the presence of off-world visitors and for a tiny group of elites to monopolize space resources and colonize selected planets while dominating the population with AI, Robotics, Invasive Satellites, Drones and GPS Tracking Advanced Technology. Can this small group of insiders that control the corporate media be stopped by rising awareness of their pernicious activities before they develop the final phase of the UFO Economy and plunge the world into a soulless, totalitarian artificial intelligence nightmare ?
