Project for Existential Risk - Huw Price NXP With NXP's ARM® continuum you can select the performance you need - whether that's a simple microcontroller, a more advanced Digital Signal Controller (DSC), or a dedicated application processor. And with the broadest ARM portfolio in the industry, you will find the right blend of peripherals and memory options to fit your design. Our award winning solutions cover the entire spectrum of embedded applications with Cortex-M0, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4, ARM7, and ARM9. And all our devices are built on an optimized ARM core to deliver higher performance, consume less power, and offer more peripherals. Designers can choose from the many tools available in the ARM ecosystem, or use a single, comprehensive toolchain to support all NXP microcontroller devices. Plus, our long-term strategic relationship with ARM gives us early access to next-generation IP, so you can be sure you’re working with the latest technologies. NXP is an mbed founder partner

PhD in temporality io Roldao Lopes - Projects Bitcoins Talk at Python for Quants March 20, 2014, at 22:05 UTC Last week, I was in New York for the first conference exclusively dedicated to Python for Quants. This was a phenomenal event that brought together some of the best quants and technologists in the field, including the masterminds behind Athena (JP Morgan) and the Quartz (BAML) platforms. My talk lasted for a little less than an hour and was focused on giving a broad overview on Bitcoins. Special thank you to the organisers, James Powell and Dr. First-class Business in a First-class Way! July 26, 2012, at 23:51 UTC For almost a year now, I have been working for Morgan Stanley, and the work has been so captivating that I have not had any time to maintain any of my websites... I work for J.P. March 08, 2011, at 07:42 UTC Life has changed quite drastically since joining J.P. I have integrated the Analytics Strategies Group which is responsible for the Core functionalities of Athena: "Athena is J.P. The Rabbit and his Thesis

The Arrow of Time We are all aware of an intuitive "flow" of time from past to future. Not only do we feel this flow of time, but we also see it manifested in the behaviour of objects which change over time. Many objects seem to behave differently in the forward time direction when compared to the backward time direction. For example, we don't see a spilt glass of water jumping up and going back into the glass, we don't see a broken egg reforming itself. These effects all add to the impression that there is some sort of "forward direction" in the time dimension. This directionality is called the Arrow of Time. However, this "arrow of time" is something of a mystery to physicists because, at the microscopic level, all fundamental physical processes appear to be time-reversible (we'll consider this later). So on this page we will investigate the cause of this mysterious "Arrow of Time". Entropy Entropy can be considered the amount of disorder in a system. Causality The Quantum Mechanical Arrow of Time

Time and the Block Universe Time and the Block Universe This page considers the nature of time itself. Using a purely logical argument - involving no physics or mathematics whatsoever - we shall see that time must behave in a way which is completely at odds with our usual mental conception of the passage of time. As Einstein himself said, the flow of time is only a "stubbornly persistent illusion". This page might very well shake the way you view the nature of time. "There is nothing outside the universe" On the previous page, Reality Is Relative , we were introduced to Lee Smolin's simple maxim: "There is nothing outside the universe" which he described as the "first principle of cosmology". This is an incredibly profound and important result - it is the principle underyling Einstein's theory of relativity - and, as we will see, it has staggering implications for our conception of how time operates in our universe. Two Theories of Time So what is the alternative? The Astounding Implications of the Block Universe

Time: Is time a human invention/construct to help us organize our lives or does it really exist outside ourselves Time: Why is the concept of time so dependent on the constant speed of light c? What relevance does light have in a theory of time
