Aiearih (Piano Improvisation)

This is probably my most thematically interesting and coincidentally longest piano piece so far. It may actually be more of a series of songs like chapters in a story, but I leave them together since it was originally played on the spot in one session. I'm also finally becoming more comfortable improvising both hands at once and switching fluidly between keys without really thinking about it.


The piece itself originally was just me messing around in a new key but upon listening back really brings to mind the scenes of a character embarking on a journey into the world and the lessons that come, a sort of coming of age. The piece evolves as the character goes from an inexperienced newcomer to a more inquisitive and observant student of those around, before finally setting out one last time to face the world again. You can hear the parts where the character may be sailing off prematurely at first and charging head-first before failing, becoming more humble and learning, and then facing the storm again with more experience and appreciation of the journey itself. It's a bit of a hero's journey, though it really just fits any story with a protagonist and tale of exploration.

Blackened Mirrors (Piano Improvisation)

After about an hour of trying to work on another song, I sort of just lost it and played this instead.

Presentation Deck for Tech Trader

This is a simple presentation deck I put together for Tech Trader, a fully autonomous trading system that has been trading with no human intervention for over 3 years.  The presentation is kept at a high level and discusses the technology and thought process behind the system, which is a combination of unconventional approaches to AI as well as just pragmatic and common-sense considerations in the logic of the system.


It also touches on my short thought piece Creating Sentient Artificial Intelligence, which contrasts the more "human" approach taken to AI via Tech Trader vs the more quantitative approaches often lumped together as Machine Learning.

Ethereum Added to Tech Trader

Been a while since I've visited the cryptocurrencies space.  It's a pleasant surprise when you have a few sleeper investments you forget about go up over 20 fold.

I went ahead and retooled the old Ripple on Tech Trader site to be more general across the four major cryptocurrencies I know of - Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Stellar.  The charts aren't too fancy or interactive but nonetheless useful for daytraders like myself that like to see where all the supports levels and trendlines are.
