I have not done a poll in a long time and if you read here often imageenough then you know about “The Attack of the Killer Algorithms” and they are out there with code that goes rogue and some queries that focus more on “desired” results than accuracy.  Some do both like they should, but look at the financial world today, how many “desired” queries exist versus the “accurate” ones?  I don’ t know but it would be interesting to find out:)

If you don’ t know about CodeAcademy visit theirimage website and they have something there for everyone to learn about computer coding and you can do as much or as little as you like but just being a part you’ll learn something and it will help you comprehend the algorithms that work behind the scenes with computer coding that you can’t see, touch or feel, but it’s there.  My next poll will be asking about the members of the Senate banking committee on whether or not they should enroll too:)

“Codecademy is the easiest way to learn how to code. It's interactive, fun, and you can do it with your friends.”

Before you vote though this video from Jon Stewart says it all….”I don’t know” so get some schooling to figure out a better answer on Dodd Frank:) If Michael Bloomberg makes the commitment, what’s wrong with Dimon getting a little smarter with evaluating “risk” models, which are not much more than a bunch of algorithms that give information so they can play with the millions and billions:)  BD 

Poll results can be seen here: 

Also this is a great educational video about the rogue algorithms on Wall Street and worth watching as Kevin Slavin gives you some insight as how the algos and Wall Street work…if” you are an algorithm the future looks pretty bright but not so much if you are a person, he states.”  BD

Life looks good for the algorithms, not so hot for the humans….
