    I remember this story coming out, truly fascinating. Part of it does reek of Big Brother or Skynet, but the implications for such advanced technology are yet to be seen. This is the dawn of the new era. I´m excited to see what the future holds in store.

    Once again a fascinating glimpse into the issues of the future. Once again I turn to my background dealing with blackbox trading of equity derivatives. High Frequency Trading Groups have a kill switch that's very basic function is to close all open positions, or cancel any outstanding orders when a significant event causes a huge spike in volatility. Problems arise when these market makers disappear suddenly from the market causing further volatility spikes. The debate continues, but certainly kill switches, circuit breakers, and other tools will be necessary to avoid a War Games like scenario.

    A fascinating first post Sarah Allen. As you know, black box trading has dominated equity trading since the 1990's. Some of the larger hedge funds betting big on AI for the future. These developments should be worrying every guy on the street as inefficiencies in any game or market will be acted upon by big money first leaving zero opportunities for us mere mortals. Eventually this will hit retail, the housing market, state auctions, you name it, so the hunt for a bargain will become almost impossible but for a few with the resources to act.
