Thursday's question of the day

Apr 09, 2015

Our last question asked: If you're an employee at JPMorgan, a new algorithm can predict what about you? It seeks to predict whether you might be a rogue trader: "Dozens of inputs, including whether workers skip compliance classes, violate personal trading rules or breach market-risk limits, will be fed into the software."

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times (again!) for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Jeanne KirkHolden LewisEdward TennerKen WalkerHollywood HighlandsRachel Roh (who bills it "a new employee's likelihood of 'breaking bad'"), Ron Casalotti (who advises "See (sorta) Tom Cruise's 'Minority Report'"), and Francis Hinchey for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question: What newly released Forever Stamp has caused some consternation in the literary world?
