Siri, Catch Market Cheats: Wall Street Watchdogs Turn to AI

Siri, Catch Market Cheats: Wall Street Watchdogs Turn to AI

Artificial intelligence programs have beaten chess masters and TV quiz show champions. Next up: stock market cheats.

Two exchange operators have announced plans to launch artificial intelligence tools for market surveillance in the coming months and officials at a Wall Street regulator tell Reuters they are not far behind. Executives are hoping computers with humanoid wit can help mere mortals catch misbehavior more quickly.

The software could, for instance, scrub chat-room messages to detect dubious bragging or back slapping around the time of a big trade. It could also more quickly unravel complex issues, like “layering,” where orders are rapidly sent to exchanges and then canceled to artificially move a stock price.

AI may even sniff out new types of chicanery, said Tom Gira, executive vice president for market regulation at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

“The biggest concern we have is that there is some manipulative scheme that we are not even aware of,” he told Reuters. “It seems like these tools have the potential to give us a better window into the market for those types of scenarios.”

FINRA plans to test artificial intelligence software being developed in-house for surveillance next year, while Nasdaq Inc and the London Stock Exchange Group expect to use it by year-end.The exchange operators also plan to sell the technology to banks and fund managers, so that they can monitor their traders.

Artificial intelligence is the notion that computers can imitate nuanced human behavior, like understanding language, solving puzzles or even diagnosing diseases. It has been in development since the 1950s and is now used in some mainstream ways, like Siri, an application on Apple’s iPhone that can engage in conversation and perform tasks.

While financial firms are already applying artificial intelligence software for everything from compliance to stock-picking, it is only starting to become useful for market oversight.

“We haven’t really let the machines loose, as it were, on the surveillance side,” said Bill Nosal, a Nasdaq business development executive who is overseeing its artificial intelligence effort.

50 billion events
Market surveillance generally relies on algorithms to detect patterns in trading data that may signal manipulation and prompt staff to investigate.

But the sheer volume of data can lead to an overwhelming number of alerts, many of which are false alarms.

FINRA monitors roughly 50 billion market “events” a day, including stock orders, modifications, cancellations and trades. It looks for around 270 patterns to uncover potential rule violations. It would not say how many events are flagged, or how many of those yield evidence of misbehavior.

The “machine learning” software it is developing will be able to look beyond those set patterns and understand which situations truly warrant red flags, said Gira.

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence in which computers figure out new tasks without having been programmed to do so. In the case of market surveillance, that would mean the computers “learn” which trading patterns lead to enforcement charges, in order to flag the right ones.

FINRA plans to test the new tool next year alongside its existing systems to compare the results.

The regulator has already moved its surveillance systems to Amazon.com’s web-based Cloud, giving it more computing power to quickly analyze massive data.

Nasdaq is working with cognitive computing firm Digital Reasoning, which it invested in earlier this year.

LSE has teamed up with International Business Machine Corp’s Watson business and cyber-security firm SparkCognition to develop its AI-enhanced surveillance, Chris Corrado, chief operating officer of LSE Group, told Reuters in an interview. Watson has become something of a household name, having bested contestants in the game show “Jeopardy” in 2011.

Trader integrity
The technology would not necessarily prevent events such as the 2010 “flash crash,” when the Dow Jones Industrial Average temporarily plunged more than 1,000 points.

However, it could be quicker to catch manipulative behavior thought to contribute to them, potentially saving market watchdogs time and money.

FINRA, Nasdaq and LSE would not provide specific figures for how much the software costs to develop or how much money they expect it to save.

For instance, investigators spent years cross-referencing trading data with old electronic communications to make their case against a group of global banks whose traders were rigging foreign exchange benchmarks.

Nasdaq said the software it is testing with Digital Reasoning and other financial firms could do that task almost in real time.

Artificial intelligence startup Neurensic on Wednesday launched a tool that creates an “integrity score” for traders based on how their trading patterns match up against patterns regulators have deemed suspicious.

“To have that information in terms of running your business more efficiently or proactively avoiding regulatory troubles is huge,” said David Widerhorn, the firm’s chief executive.

Neurensic has also worked with regulators on market-manipulation investigations and is in talks with two exchanges on supplying artificial intelligence software for surveillance, he said.

Microsoft Will Reportedly Not Launch New Band; Instead Focus on Its Health Service

Microsoft Will Reportedly Not Launch New Band; Instead Focus on Its Health Service

  • There won’t be a third-iteration to the Microsoft Band fitness tracker
  • Microsoft Band was launched in 2014
  • Microsoft Band 2 was launched in 2015

If a new report is to be believed then Microsoft may be done with its Band fitness trackers, and is instead focusing on its Health service. The Redmond-based giant has so far unveiled Microsoft Bandback in 2014 priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 12,000), and the Microsoft Band 2 in 2015 at $249 (roughly Rs. 16,300).

ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley citing sources claim that Microsoft has “no plans” to release third-generation of the Band fitness tracker this year. She also added that the company “disbanded” the team that was working on the Band to run Windows 10 “a number of weeks ago.” To recall, the original Band and Band 2 ran custom firmware and not Windows. The company is likely to push its Health service which made its debut back in 2014.

Microsoft didn’t confirm (or deny) the details, but instead asserted the company’s commitment to its Health service. “We continue to invest and innovate in the Microsoft Health platform, which is open to all hardware and apps partners across Windows, iOS, and Android devices. We also continue to sell Microsoft Band 2 and remain deeply committed to supporting our customers and exploring the wearables space,” stated Microsoft.

Microsoft, unlike its Lumia smartphone range, never made the Bands available in several markets giving an impression that the company was targeting only specific markets with the wearable.

The Redmond giant has lately been streamlining its products and has already given up on the Lumia smartphone range. The company is expected to launch the Surface range of smartphones soon.

To refresh, the Microsoft Band 2 features a curved Oled display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and comes equipped with sensors such as GPS, gyroscope, and barometer among others. These sensors enable UV monitoring, offer guided workouts, sleep tracking, and measure calorie intake. The Band 2 works with Android and iOS apart from Windows 10 Mobile. The Microsoft Band 2 also features Cortana integration.

 

Nasa’s Juno Probe Sends Back Images of Jupiter’s Poles

Nasa's Juno Probe Sends Back Images of Jupiter's Poles

Nasa published Friday the first-ever images of Jupiter’s north pole and its southern aurora, taken during the Juno spacecraft’s first orbital flyby of the gaseous giant.

Juno came within 2,500 miles (4,200 kilometres) of Jupiter on August 27 during a six-hour transit from the north pole to the south.

“It looks like nothing we have seen or imagined before,” said Scott Bolton, principal investigator of Juno from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio.

“The largest planet in our solar system is truly unique. We have 36 more flybys to study just how unique it really is.”

A camera dubbed the “JunoCam” took the high-definition images. It is one of the nine instruments onboard the spacecraft.

Juno notably sent the first infrared close-ups of the planet’s north and south poles.

“These first infrared views of Jupiter’s north and south poles are revealing warm and hot spots that have never been seen before,” said Alberto Adriani, of the Istituto di Astrofisica e Planetologia Spaziali in Rome.

Adriani is one of the researchers who developed the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) that allowed scientists to acquire the images.

“While we knew that the first-ever infrared views of Jupiter’s south pole could reveal the planet’s southern aurora, we were amazed to see it for the first time,” he said.

Auroras are streamers of light in the sky caused by energy from the sun and electrically charged particles trapped in the magnetic field.

Another Juno instrument recorded sounds from Jupiter – “ghostly-sounding transmissions emanating from the planet,” said Nasa.

Scientists have known about Jupiter’s radio emissions since the 1950s, but had never analyzed them from such a close distance.

“Jupiter is talking to us in a way only gas-giant worlds can,” said Bill Kurth, co-investigator from the University of Iowa.

Juno’s main mission began in July and is scheduled to end in February 2018, when the probe will self-destruct by diving into the planet’s atmosphere.

The $1.1 billion project aims to peer beneath the clouds around Jupiter for the first time to learn more about the planet’s atmosphere.

Scientists want to know how much water the planet contains, because it can tell them a lot about when and how the planet formed.

Juno will also probe how the planet’s intense magnetic field is generated, and study the formation of auroras.

Nod to Arianespace for Launch of Isro Satellite

European space agency Arianespace has got the nod to go ahead with the November 10 launch of Indian communication satellite GSAT-15 and Arabsat-6B, the agency said.

In a statement early Saturday, Arianespace said the November 10 dual-passenger mission with Ariane 5 rocket the spaceport in French Guiana got the authorisation after the Launch Readiness Review on November 6.

Planned during a 43-minute launch window that opens at 6.34 p.m. (local time in French Guiana), the Ariane 5 mission will have a total payload lift performance of 9,810 kg.

“This includes the two satellites’ mass at liftoff – 5,798 kg for Arabsat-6B and 3,164 kg. for GSAT-15 – along with launcher integration hardware and Ariane 5’s dual-passenger deployment system,” Arianespace said.

The Indian satellite GSAT-15 is designed to deliver telecommunications services, along with dedicated navigation-aid and emergency services, for India.

Built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro), it will be the 19th payload launched by Arianespace for this customer – which is one of the world’s six largest space agencies.

The Indian satellite with a design life of 12 years will have 24 Ku-band transponders (automatic receivers and transmitters of radio signals) and two GAGAN (GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation) transponders.

Toyota Invests $1 Billion in Artificial Intelligence in US

Toyota is investing $1 billion (roughly Rs. 6,581 crores) in a research company it’s setting up in Silicon Valley to develop artificial intelligence and robotics, underlining the Japanese automaker’s determination to lead in futuristic cars that drive themselves and apply the technology to other areas of daily life.

Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda said Friday the company will start operating from January 2016, with 200 employees at a Silicon Valley facility near Stanford University, with a second facility near Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.

The investment, which will be spread over five years, comes on top of $50 million (roughly Rs. 330 crores) Toyota announced earlier for artificial intelligence research at Stanford and MIT.

Toyota said its interest extended beyond autonomous driving, which is starting to be offered by some automakers and being promised by almost all of them. The technology was pointing to a new industry for everyday use, delivering a safer lifestyle overall, it said.

Toyota has already shown an R2-D2-like robot that scoots around and picks up things for people, designed to help the elderly, the sick and people in wheelchairs. It has also shown human-shaped entertainment robots that can carry on conversations and play musical instruments. As the world’s top auto manufacturer, Toyota already uses sophisticated robotic arms and computers in auto production, including doing paint jobs and screwing in parts.

To drive home the message his vision was more than about just cars, Toyoda appeared at a Tokyo hotel with high profile robotics expert Gill Pratt, who will head the new organization called Toyota Research Institute Inc.

Pratt was formerly a program manager at the US military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and joined Toyota as a technical adviser when it set up its AI research effort at Stanford and MIT.

He said the company’s goals are to support older people in their homes with robotics, make cars free of accidents and use AI to allow all people to drive regardless of ability.

Pratt gave three examples from his personal life that motivate him to develop robotics and related technology: when he was a child, seeing a boy on a bicycle killed by a car; telling his 83-year-old father he could no longer drive; and sending his father to a nursing home when he was 84.

Pratt, who grew up on Japanese robot animation and dreamed of one day building such robots, said he chose Toyota over other jobs because it was “so focused on social good.”

But he also said coming up with a car as smart as a human being will take a long time. But that also meant the competition had just begun, no one was ahead significantly, and Toyota still had plenty of time to catch up or become a leader, he said.

The new company will be hiring researchers and engineers, according to Toyota. Wooing talent is crucial because not only are automakers, such as General Motors, Tesla and Nissan competing on autonomous driving but outsiders are as well, including Google, Apple and Uber.

Toyota, which has gone through troubled times with massive recalls and the 2011 tsunami in northeastern Japan, has the cash these days to invest in the future.

On Thursday, it kept its profit forecast for the fiscal year through March 2016 unchanged at JPY 2.25 trillion, as profit rose on cost cuts and the benefits of a weak yen. The maker of the Prius hybrid and Camry sedan is on track to sell about 10 million vehicles around the world this year.

Toyoda, ranked by Forbes in this year’s “powerful people” list as the most powerful Japanese, said he looks forward to working with Pratt because they share a vision.

“The goal is to do away with the tragedy of car accidents,” he told reporters.

Scientists Developing Battery-Free Pacemakers Powered by the Heart

Scientists are developing next-generation battery-free implantable pacemakers that may be powered by an unlikely source – the heart itself.

The advancement is based upon a piezoelectric system that converts vibrational energy – created inside the chest by each heartbeat – into electricity to power the pacemaker.

“Essentially, we’re creating technology that will allow pacemakers to be powered by the very heart that they are regulating,” said M Amin Karami, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University at Buffalo School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, who is leading the research.

The technology may eliminate the medical risks, costs and inconvenience of having a battery replacement every five to 12 years for millions of people worldwide, researchers said.

About the size of a pocket watch, pacemakers are implanted under the skin through an incision in the chest.

Wires, also called leads, connect the device to the heart and deliver electrical signals that regulate the heart’s activity.

The new wireless option does not require leads because it rests inside the heart. This removes a potential point of failure, but the device still relies on a battery that must be replaced as often as the batteries that conventional pacemakers use.

The idea of heart-powered pacemakers came to Karami after doing PhD work on piezoelectric applications for unmanned aerial vehicles and bridges. He wanted to apply that knowledge to the human body.

The heart was an obvious choice because of its relative strength and constant motion.

“To see the heart in motion – even an animation – is to be awestruck. It moves significantly. In turn, that movement creates energy that we’re just now figuring out how to harvest,” said Karami.

Karami initially designed a flat piezoelectric structure for a conventional pacemaker. A prototype generated enough power to keep the pacemaker running at a range of 7 to 700 beats per minute.

With the development of wireless pacemakers, however, he has revamped the design to accommodate the smaller, tube-shaped device.

Karami, who is already talking to device-makers, is building the new prototype and expects to have animal tests done within two years.

Skull Face Dead Comet to Hurtle by Earth on Halloween

A massive space rock that will shave by Earth on Halloween looks like a dead comet with a skull face, Nasa said after gaining a closer look at the spooky space junk.

Astronomers initially thought the object was an asteroid when they spotted it in early October, and named it Asteroid 2015 TB145.

But using the US space agency’s Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, experts “have determined that the celestial object is more than likely a dead comet that has shed its volatiles after numerous passes around the sun,” Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement late Friday.

Scientists have also spotted an eerie skull-like resemblance on the face of the rock, based on radar data from the National Science Foundation’s 305-metre (1,000-foot) Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

“In the Arecibo images it appears to have donned a skull costume for its Halloween flyby,” said Kelly Fast, IRTF program scientist at Nasa and acting program manager for the US space agency’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program.

The space rock has already grabbed attention with its unusually high speed and big size, about as large as a football stadium at 2,000 feet (600 metres) in diameter.

There is no danger of it hitting Earth, however.

When it zips by Saturday at 1pm (5:00pm GMT or 10:30pm IST), it will do so at a distance of 302,000 miles (486,000 kilometres).

That’s about 1.3 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
