I worked on Project SmartFence - an application for web access control. Users block or allow the few sites they know and SmartFence infers the suitability for the rest of the web. We developed several different cluster/kernel-based models and visualization schemes, and I delivered a prototype for the OneWeek company-wide hackathon. A patent was applied for.

June 2016 - present

The goal is to model the deterministic component of equities prices and relations between multiple time series, using layers of convolutional filter banks learned automatically through optimization. For simplicity, I used Microsoft's CNTK deep learning toolkit and QuantQuote's commercial tick-resolution historical dataset for all equities in the S&P500.
