Kevin Slavin’s TED talk on high-frequency trading. He shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can’t understand, with implications we can’t control.

Why? Because Automated Trading not only provides a path to grow one’s wealth; It also presents your inner geek with the opportunity to delve into aspects of Artificial Intelligence and Bio-Inspired Algorithms (neural networks, genetic algorithms, genetic programming, reinforcement learning, fuzzy clustering, vector quantization, etc). Put more plainly: You get to play with cool stuff while earning some nice coin. It doesn’t get any better than that!
