4-month feasibility study on sentiment analysis of images in social media, funded by a research grant from the UK government's technology strategy board.

|Self-directed research: Deep convnet models for equities pricing|
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.
