Logging in large mathematical models

Logging is crucial in any large system, but numerical programs add some unique challenges. You can’t simply write a large numeric array to a text file: neither a human nor a computer can easily read that.

At Man AHL, we’ve solved this with a special diagnostic log format, affectionately known as a ‘diag’.

Logging Values

Suppose we have some code of the form:

import numpy as np def complex_model(val): return val + 1.0 def apply_complex_model(arr): return np.apply_along_axis(complex_model, 0, arr)

The GDPR is Coming: We Shed Light on What’s Still Not Working

On May 25, the biggest shake-up to Europe’s data protection laws in almost a generation will finally take effect, after years of planning. For any US organization handling data on EU citizens, including service providers, it means you could face hefty fines of up to €20m ($24.7m) or 4% of global annual turnover for non-compliance. That should get the attention of any board. Yet awareness remains patchy. Research gathered by Trend Micro reveals that firms still aren’t investing in the right areas ahead of the regulation and could be dangerously under-prepared.

People Don’t Want to Be Compared with Others in Performance Reviews. They Want to Be Compared with Themselves

Executive Summary

Why do people hate performance reviews? Maybe because, according to surveys, most of us don’t think they’re fair. A team of researchers set out to examine this in more detail. In four studies based on the data collected from 1,024 American and Dutch employees, they compared two types of reference points: employees who were compared against each other, and employees whose current performance was compared against their own past performance. The latter seemed to be perceived as far more fair — in that case, participants believed that the evaluations were more individualized, believing that the manager incorporated specific information about them. Thus, they considered that the evaluations were more discerning and accurate, and that they had been treated in a more respectful way.

Facebook Is A Drug That’s Hell To Kick, Your Data For A Fix (Forbes)

On Facebook , yesterday, there was a comment on a post about the recent “betrayal” by Facebook where it concerns our “private” data. The comment was simply the hashtag #deletefacebook. Posted, with apparently little irony, on Facebook. It’s an interesting juxtaposition of the current mess that Facebook finds itself in with its users. Perhaps I’m a day or ten years too late on this (not really, I’ve literally written about it numerous times), but it appears we need to have another conversation about the actual service Facebook provides and what about your data that is considered private.

Understanding the Relationship Between AI and Cybersecurity

The first thing many of us think about when it comes to the future relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity is Skynet—the fictional neural net-based group mind from the “Terminator” movie franchise. But at least one security professional (with a somewhat rosier view) suggested that AI must be understood across a broader landscape, regarding how it will influence cybersecurity and how IT can use AI to plan for future security technology purchases.
