06/22/16 12:43 PMHere's Why Twitter Is Increasing Its Focus On Machine Learning - Recently, Twitter announced that it is acquiring Magic Pony Technology, a London based technology company that has developed machine learning techniques for visual processing. The deal was disclosed by CEO Jack Dorsey in a blog post with no reference to its size. This investment builds on other acquisitions made by the company in this space such as Madbits in 2014 and Whetlab in 2015. Twitter plans to use Magic Pony’s technology (which can understand the features of imagery) to enhance its video strength. This technology will allow the company to automatically sharpen videos and images on its platform and gain the ability to extrapolate meaningfully from one small texture to a much larger one. Machine intelligence is gaining importance as companies such as Facebook and Google are also investing heavily in this space to enhance user experience. Videos and live streaming would be critical for social media platforms in future and we believe Twitter’s strategy to invest towards improving user experience in images and videos should work to its advantage.

06/21/16 02:21 PMHow To Play The Brexit Vote - It’s Going to be a Close One First off, for those who are unfamiliar with Brexit, it refers to the impending June 23 referendum in the UK on whether to stay in or leave the European Union (EU). Learn more here. A vote to leave (Brexit=Britain+Exit) the EU is likely to undermine the UK economy in the years ahead and has the potential to trigger intense global market volatility. Everything from currencies to stocks and bonds would be impacted, as investors flee risk assets (stocks, commodities, and FX) and seek refuge in safe haven assets, primarily bonds outside of the UK. Recent worldwide market declines have been attributed to concerns over a Brexit, as the most recent polls suggest the ‘Leave’ side is now ahead of the ‘Remain’ vote. Survation, a UK polling firm, released results today that show the ‘Leave’ vote at 45% vs. 42% for the ‘Remain’ side (see the chart below). Other polls have shown similar leads for Brexit, but the number of ‘don’t know/undecided’ responses remains high at around 13%, meaning the vote is anyone’s guess. Source: Bloomberg; Drive Wealth However, UK odds makers, such as Ladbrokes and Betfair, are still placing the odds of a Brexit on the short side, posting around a 60% likelihood that the UK will remain. These betting companies indicate they expect Brexit to become the favorite in the next few days if the trend in recent wagers continues. Underlying the current odds favoring ‘Remain’ is their view that the undecided voters will swing in favor of the status quo (Remain) when it’s time to vote. ...Full story available on Benzinga.com
