All About Alpha wrote a new blog post titled Greenwich Associates on Exchange-Listed Options
Greenwich Associates has produced research, commissioned by the Options Industry Council, about the way institutional investors understand exchange listed options. Greenwich concludes that underperforming institutions, including pension plans and endowments, “should be considering investments in options strategies as a means to improve risk-adjusted returns.” Institutions not currently doing so mayRead More

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Robot Collection and Transport of Objects: A Biomimetic Process
Animals as diverse as ants and humans are faced with the tasks of collecting, transporting or herding objects. Sheepdogs do this daily when they collect, herd, and maneuver flocks of sheep. Here, we adapt a shepherding algorithm inspired by sheepdogs to collect and transport objects using a robot. Our approach produces an effective robot collection process that autonomously adapts to changing environmental conditions and is robust to noise from various sources. We suggest that this biomimetic process could be implemented into suitable robots to perform collection and transport tasks...

All About Alpha wrote a new blog post titled Private Debt and Impact Investors
A new study by the Symbiotics and GIIN research teams looks at private debt impact funds (PDIFs); that is, “independent investment vehicles that allocate on average more than 85% of their portfolios to private debt” and that look to the environmental and/or social impact their allocations will have.   The goalRead More

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Meeting resistance
Almost as soon as antibiotics were discovered to be valuable in medicine, resistance emerged among bacteria. Whenever mutating or recombining organisms are faced with extirpation, those individuals with variations that avert death will survive and reproduce to take over the population. This can happen rapidly among organisms that reproduce fast and outpace our efforts to combat them. Thus, our use of chemical entities to rid ourselves of clinical, domestic, and agricultural pathogens and pests has selected for resistance. Today, we find ourselves at the nexus of an alarming acceleration of...

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled BrainComputing: Theoretical Neuroscience and its Applications, CCS18 Satellite
Neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field focused on uncovering the dynamics of brain and, more in general, the complex functions and structures of neural systems. These topics constitute paradigmatic examples of complex systems, and can be studied by using different frameworks, spanning from nonlinear dynamics to complex networks. In addition, the increasing availability of data coming from tools like fMRI, EEG, and others, has strongly supported new investigations. At the same time, although these topics are maybe among mostly investigated in science, a lot must yet be discovered....

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled 10 Breakthrough Technologies Making Promising Progress in 2018
Dueling neural networks. Artificial embryos. AI in the cloud. Welcome to our annual list of the 10 technology advances we think will shape the way we work and live now and for years to come.   Every year since 2001 the people at Technology Review have picked what they call the 10 Breakthrough Technologies. People often ask, what exactly is meant by “breakthrough”? It’s a reasonable question—some of the picks haven’t yet reached widespread use, while others may be on the cusp of becoming commercially available. What Technology Review is really looking for is...
