Running Alpha and it's founder, Efrem Hoffman, is rethinking the way we can collaborate with the underlying physics of nature to better exploit uncertainty for competitive advantage in world capital markets.

The founder has introduced a new financial curve beyond traditional alpha and beta; he calls it Activist Alpha;

Activist Alpha leverages principles of fractional calculus, quantum computing phenomena, and self-organizing complex systems for extracting and unlocking new insights about market asymmetries;

specifically how knowledge of the micro-structure of human and machine perception biases can be used for profiting from:

(i) sharp changes in the market landscape that could trip up quant systems on the wrong side of the trade;

(ii) the ways the best and worst investors ( smart and dumb money ) will be magnifying emotional biases
in their interactions during emergency situations;

(iii) timing the allocation of capital resources ( Monetary, IP, Human, M&A, Buybacks, IPOs, Debt ) and the release of critical corporate information; and

(iv) time-relevant smart-cuts for shape-shifting the market's forward sentiment jet-stream perceptions' and amplifying the half-life of sentiment-moving events,

in favor of high-impact performance outcomes that work for you and all your stakeholders involved in the resource allocation process.

Running Alpha is not simply focusing on Finding Alpha based on the prevailing market structure, but is opening new ground for predicting super-anomalies that are revealing otherwise invisible opportunities.

Seeing the future is one thing; being able to do something about it is quite another.

Dynamically Generating and Effecting Change to make past decisions come alive again,
through actively bringing the sum-non-linear observer interactions into the data analytics equation is the RunningAlpha Way!

Precision Activism: How Running Alpha is Changing the Face of Financial Decision-Making Outcomes for Delivering Super-Human Investor Performance
Efrem Hoffman
March 17, 2019
Instead of Predicting Capital Market events from the Outside, which are in theory and practice virtually unknowable, Running Alpha leverages market event and investor uncertainty with never-before-accessible insights into the forward-looking market interaction effects of divergent and convergent investor sentiment and perception biases across all time-lines simultaneously, for monetizing future scenarios; thereby:

liberating investors and traders from:

feeling anxiety about not having a stake in the future -- by shifting their attention from inputting and acting on their own opinions to looking down from 30000 feet on the whole market player decision-making puzzle board; and

the complexities of consistently finding extraordinary opportunities at the intersection of value and exponential growth, without compromising the potential for comfort-adjusted absolute returns in all market environments and across all economic cycles.

The World's Thinnest Risk Window
Efrem Hoffman, CEO and Founder, RunningAlPha.com Investments Inc.
December 19, 2018
To promote the science of optimally allocating human, machine, and capital resources in unpredictable and highly hostile environments,

Running Alpha is a Tail-Risk Intelligence and Investment Portfolio Innovation thought leader that is engineering smart-cuts for solving tomorrow's most intractable computing and predictive analytics challenges.

Helping wealth managers Hedge-for-a-Profit ( instead of a cost ) and building agile High Active-Share Portfolios with Conviction Inside the World's Thinnest Risk Windows is our Mission.

Before Big Data and Machine Intelligence became a buzzword, the founder has been applying these technologies in collaboration with world leading practitioners and academic institutions, including the Canadian Atmospheric Prediction Center.

StormTech -- an AI-Powered Tornado-Hunting Application using 3D Radar-Enabled Vision -- was the founder's first successful use case of this technology in the mid 1990's.

Pioneering a new category of Predictive Decision-Making Science that is Leaping beyond today's most advanced versions of Deep Learning,

Running Alpha is now leveraging a new insights framework at the intersection of:

Quantum Computing;

Gauge Symmetric Topology;

Network Mathematics,

Fractional Calculus;

Poly-Scale Fractal Analysis; and

Relational Perception Geometry --

Branded under the trade-name Bottom-Down Analytics -- TM ).

Extracting Profits From Crypto-Currencies | Running Alpha Opens New Ground in Data-Driven Decision-Making: Introducing AI-Powered Quantum Machines
Running Alpha, Efrem Hoffman, CE and Founder
December 12, 2018
Running Alpha is the first AI-Powered Algorithmic Machine Intelligence Framework that was designed from the ground up to:

organically simulate how nature uses quantum computing principles for circumventing the constraints of processing exponentially big chunks of classical data ( visible information ) in real-time.

In-house proprietary technology is used for transforming data into an encrypted superposition of quantum entangled states — each representing the observed event from a unique viewing perspective; independent of human or machine observation.

Adapted from the founder’s U.S. patents on Autonomous Hierarchical Assemblies of Artificial Neural Networks — for giving early warning of tornado outbreaks from 3D atmospheric radar imagery — the parameters underlying the conversion process were discovered.

Up until now, conventional machine intelligence can only learn by example in sequence; and because they require a very large number of past examples to recognize variation and identify change, many of today’s newer data sets of finite length impose a roadblock to innovating data-driven applications.

Even in those situations where the data history is not limited, legacy classical algorithms are unable to leverage the capabilities offered by Running Alpha’s massively-parallel one-shot training process (self-generated), which takes into account gauge symmetries — the unchanging geometric relationships among the viewing perspectives (quantum states) that lead to emergent structure in the real-world; and as such, traditional AI platforms are ill-designed for detecting anomalies in data we have never seen before.
