DeepTrading.ai Introduced, Making AI-Driven Investment Modeling Available to All Investors

DeepTrading.ai | April 26, 2021

DeepTrading.ai introduced its business to offer artificial intelligence AI-driven products such as stock price prediction models to investors of all types. DeepTrading.ai provides daily, weekly, and monthly market forecasts using advanced deep learning algorithms. Even three months and a year in advance, the company's algorithms will forecast production data for at least 250 stocks, with more to be added soon. The platform is hosted on a multimillion-dollar cloud infrastructure that regularly trains the AI models.

"We are a small, tight-knit group of Wall Street professionals who saw an opportunity," CEO Nektarios Kalogridis said. "Our goal is to level the trade playing field for the next generation. Why should investment firms and hedge funds be able to time the market when they have access to advanced analytics and models? Our AI models render dynamic time-series predictions using sophisticated deep neural networks. This methodology enables the model to detect patterns and trends that are not readily evident to investors."

DeepTrading.ai increases accuracy and eliminates the need for investors to do time-consuming analytical work. Kalogridis went on to say, "Best of all, we will personalize your DeepTrading iteration and build prediction models based on your investment preferences. We have the resources to assist you." Indeed, the company's Deep Index is the Dow Industrial Average's daily predicted price. Anyone can view this for free. Investors gain access to a preview of the system as well as the ability to examine historical model performance.

Nektarios is an AI thought leader and technology expert with over twenty years of Wall Street experience. For major investment banks, he delivered increasingly sophisticated AI-driven trading systems and applications. In this new endeavor, he shares his unparalleled Deep Learning expertise and insight into the investment planning and growth process.

DeepTrading.ai has three subscription levels: Basic, Advanced, and Enterprise.

The second quarter of 2019 saw a surge in debate about the role of governance in the AI ecosystem and the gap between technological change and regulatory response. This trend was manifested in particular by calls for regulation of certain “controversial” AI technologies or use cases, in turn increasingly empowering lawmakers to take fledgling steps to control the scope of AI and automated systems in the public and private sectors. While it remains too soon to herald the arrival of a comprehensive federal regulatory strategy in the U.S., there have been a number of recent high-profile draft bills addressing the role of AI and how it should be governed at the federal level, while state and local governments are already pressing forward with concrete legislative proposals regulating the use of AI.

NCI announces its transformation to Empower AI

Empower AI | June 08, 2022

NCI Information Systems, Inc., a long-time technology provider to U.S. government agencies, today announced that it has become Empower AI. The transformation reflects the successful adoption of the Empower AI Platform across federal defense, civilian and health care agencies, and leverages Empower AI’s all-inclusive AI-as-a-Service (AIaaS) approach. “Empower AI is declaring what we know to be true: AI is the most transformative technology of this era,” said Paul A. Dillahay, president and CEO of the new Empower AI. “AI represents the single biggest opportunity to enhance productivity of the federal workforce. By aggregating and synthesizing data quickly and more effectively with AI, we can elevate mission success for every government agency.” According to December 2021 research from Deloitte, 92% of federal agency leaders believe AI is important to their mission outcomes but the lack of technology supporting artificial intelligence is the top barrier to taking advantage of it. With nearly half of mature government organizations still beginners at AI, according to the same study, Empower AI’s AIaaS model makes government adoption easier by reducing risk and focusing on the “human development” aspects through integrated development, implementation, maintenance, and performance services at a fixed, inclusive cost. Empower AI Platform built for the government ecosystem The company’s flagship product, the Empower AI Platform, introduced in 2020 and continuously enriched, is built on decades of mission experience and tailored specifically for government challenges. The platform gives government agency customers the insights and tools necessary to make critical decisions faster. “Our deep knowledge and understanding of our federal clients featured prominently in the development of the Empower AI Platform,” Dillahay said. “We designed it specifically for the unique ways in which government works, and in accordance with its strict requirements for security and transparency.” The platform’s components include an AI framework, hyper-automation tools, and digital assistant: Empower AI Works: A suite of hyper-automation tools helps shift focus to the most impactful work by automating time consuming tasks with AI, without the need for human intervention. Empower AI Advises: A side-by-side AI assistant that accelerates human decision-making and increases productivity. Empower AI Leads: A comprehensive AI management system that equips mission leaders to make better, faster decisions and achieve meaningful digital evolution through a unique and streamlined view of objectives, projects and tasks updated in real-time as work is accomplished. Empower AI’s commitment to the transformative power of AI has already yielded results. The company has secured more than $1.5 billion in AI-enabled work and more than 75% of its customers have implemented the Empower AI Platform to recognize the exponential effectiveness of their AI-enabled workforce. About Empower AI Empower AI is AI for government. Empower AI gives federal agency leaders the tools to elevate the potential of their workforce with a direct path for meaningful transformation. Headquartered in Reston, Va., Empower AI leverages three decades of mission experience solving complex challenges in Health, Defense, and Civilian missions. Their proven Empower AI Platform provides a practical, sustainable path for clients to achieve transformation that is true to who they are, what they do, and how they work, with the resources they have. The result is a government workforce that is exponentially more creative and productive.

Union.ai releases UnionML for seamless creation of web-native machine learning applications

Union.ai | June 10, 2022

Union.ai, provider of the open-source workflow orchestration platform Flyte and its hosted version, Union Cloud, today announced the release of UnionML at MLOps World 2022. The open-source MLOps framework for building web-native machine learning applications offers a unified interface for bundling Python functions into machine learning (ML) microservices. It is the only library that seamlessly manages both data science workflows and production lifecycle tasks. This makes it easy to build new AI applications from scratch, or make existing Python code run faster at scale. UnionML aims to unify the ever-evolving ecosystem of machine learning and data tools into a single interface for expressing microservices as Python functions. Data scientists can create UnionML applications by defining a few core methods that are automatically bundled into ML microservices, starting with model training and offline/online prediction. "Creating machine learning applications should be easy, frictionless and simple, but today it really isn't., The cost and complexity of choosing tools, deciding how to combine them into a coherent ML stack, and maintaining them in production requires a whole team of people who often leverage different programming languages and follow disparate practices. UnionML significantly simplifies creating and deploying machine learning applications." Union.ai CEO Ketan Umare UnionML apps comprise two objects: Dataset and Model. Together, they expose function decorator entry points that serve as building blocks for a machine learning application. By focusing on the core building blocks instead of the way they fit together, data scientists can reduce their cognitive load for iterating on models and deploying them to production. UnionML uses Flyte to execute training and prediction workflows locally or on production-grade Kubernetes clusters, relieving MLOps engineers of the overhead of provisioning compute resources for their stakeholders. Models and ML applications can be served via FastAPI or AWS Lambda. More options will be available in the future. About Union.ai Union.ai helps organizations deliver reliable, reproducible and cost-effective machine learning and data orchestration built around open-source Flyte. Flyte is a one of a kind workflow automation platform that simplifies the journey of data scientists and machine learning engineers from ideation to production. Some of the top companies, including Lyft, Spotify, GoJek and more, rely on Flyte to power their Data & ML products. Based in Bellevue, Wash., Union.ai was started by founding engineers of Flyte and is the leading contributor to Flyte.
