Trading Technologies acquires Chicago AI startup Neurensic

(Reuters) – Trading software provider Trading Technologies International Inc said on Tuesday it has acquired Neurensic LLC, a startup that uses artificial intelligence for market surveillance and compliance, for an undisclosed amount.

Neurensic’s team and technology, which allows market participants, exchanges and regulators to identify risks in real time from complex trading patterns, have moved over to Trading Technologies, the Chicago-based company said in a statement.

“Artificial intelligence and machine learning are rapidly altering the landscape of trading, and acquiring certain assets of Neurensic enables Trading Technologies to offer AI solutions that no other professional trading platform has offered before,” said Michael Kraines, Trading Technologies’ chief financial officer.

12 ‘hot’ technologies not living up to the hype

This is tech. We make the future. However, we often get a little ahead of ourselves. Oftentimes the promise isn’t fulfilled as soon or as well as we imagined or vapored forth. Here is my list of stuff that may be good, but perhaps isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be as of mid-2017.

1. Chatbots

It is ironic that I’d call chatbots a bit overhyped given that I work for a search company (full disclosure: I work for Lucidworks, a search technology firm with products in this area). I don’t mean to say that NLP and conversational search and such don’t have a very bright future, but chatbots will only be useful as an interface to a search engine—as the thing that asks follow-up questions to refine your search to find exactly what you’re looking for. All of the other uses, like the one that tries to sell you something or tries to work in customer service, are just fancy dressed up IVR systems.

Don’t bet too soon on the hot cloud technologies

We all know what’s cool now in the cloud: microservices, devops, containers, and machine learning. It’s what guys like me are writing and speaking about. However, the overapplication of these technologies could end up hurting you greatly. Here’s why.

On one hand, I want to promote the use of new technology, such as cloud computing and containers. But, on the other hand, I need to have a good understanding of what business problems my clients are looking to solve, to determine the correct application of any technology, new, old, hyped, taken for granted, whatever. 

What typically happens is that the people looking to move into cloud are up on all the hyped technologies. It’s like shopping for a new car: You can have a pretty long list what you think you need: self-parking, heated seats, bending lights, voice assistance, childproof seating, maybe short-range flight.

9 technologies that IT needed but didn’t get in 2016

Despite some significant arrivals, 2016 also failed to deliver some long-awaited technologies. And some of what we eagerly ripped the wrapping paper off proved to be a letdown.

Here’s a rundown of the gifts IT didn’t get in 2016.

Professional-grade 3D printing

If you want to print out a stand for your phone or a model for a new product, you can easily find a 3D printer for the office that can do that — as long as you want to print them out in plastic. You can spend more and get a 3D printer that can UV cure resin and make small objects like custom-fit earplugs in about 10 minutes (I watched my ACS Custom in-ear monitor headphones get printed from digital scans of my ear canals earlier this year). Even HP’s $ 140,000 Multi Jet Fusion printers — promised for this year and offering multi-color printing — only just went on sale, and they still only print nylon. You can prototype a (plastic) circuit board with conductive ink circuits with the Voxel8 Developer Kit, as long as you pause the printing and add the chips by hand.

Emerging technologies are poking holes in security

Accelerated change challenges change management, security devops, and emerging technologies that enable business innovation and opportunities demand fast, frequent change from the enterprise. The speed and regularity as well as the kinds of change challenge change management and ultimately security.

To secure the enterprise in environments of unwieldy change, the business needs to know how each new technology affects change management and the organization’s security defenses.

Organizations can then begin to evolve change management and security to close those gaps and avoid impacts on security.
