    Stock trend prediction plays a critical role in seeking maximized profit from stock investment. However, precise trend prediction is very difficult since the highly volatile and non-stationary nature of stock market. Exploding information on Internet together with advancing development of natural language processing and text mining techniques have enable investors to unveil market trends and volatility from online content. Unfortunately, the quality, trustworthiness and comprehensiveness of online content related to stock market varies drastically, and a large portion consists of the low-quality news, comments, or even rumors. To address this challenge, we imitate the learning process of human beings facing such chaotic online news, driven by three principles: sequential content dependency, diverse influence, and effective and efficient learning. In this paper, to capture the first two principles, we designed a Hybrid Attention Networks to predict the stock trend based on the sequence of recent related news. Moreover, we apply the self-paced learning mechanism to imitate the third principle. Extensive experiments on real-world stock market data demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.

    Work in econophysics has shown the existence of robust structures in economics data, which had been largely ignored in past economic literature. Many complex interacting systems in nature, such as earthquakes, are described by power laws. In statistical physics, fluctuations for systems near the critical point follow a power law distribution. The exponents associated with the power law for fluctuations can be used to categorize the systems into specific universality classes. In economics, growth rates for firms depend on different factors for different industries. Here, we show that fluctuations in growth for companies follow a power law with very similar scaling exponents, irrespective of the economic sector. Our findings hold for many industries across all available data. Furthermore, we show that fluctuations of the growth rate for new industries self-organize into a power law distribution over relatively short time scales. Our results provide the first strong evidence of statistical mechanical universality in economic systems, and can be used as an empirical test for theories of microeconomic growth.

    I'm pleased to announce the release today of an all-new version of the Everest Leadership and Team Simulation.  This version (V3) provides an updated user experience, as well as all-new scenarios on the mountain.  Instructors can continue to use the original scenarios, or they can choose new situations and problems that students must address and solve.  For those not familiar with this simulation, it provides a highly engaging and interactive experience for students and executive education participants.  The simulation aims to teach important concepts about team dynamics, decision-making, and group learning.  I'm grateful to have collaborated once again with co-author Amy Edmondson and the incredible teams at Forio and Harvard Business Publishing.  I hope instructors will learn more about this new version and let us know if they have any questions!  The link above provides a description of the simulation as well as a preview of the experience.

    C   CGanga is the new think tank formed under the aegis of NMCG and one of its stated objectives is to make India a world leader in river and water science. The Centre is headquartered at IIT Kanpur and represents all the leading science and technological institutes of the country. In addition, it is responsible for introducing new technologies, innovations and solutions into India.   GMEX was selected as one of the 25 ‘high impact’ solution providers, from around the world, who have been invited to present to all of the key stakeholders in the Ganga clean up initiative of the Government of India. GMEX is supported by partner UTrade Solutions and its affiliate Avenir Technologies Limited. The exchange solution will include technology to deliver market data, Warehouse Receipts, finance and trading, including auctions, quoting and continuous trading facilities. A key part of the solution will be the contact database that will track the potential thousands of product suppliers who will participate in the system. The solution will run in parallel on Blockchain technology inclusive of a distributed registry and contact database.   The initiative also includes a partnership with GS Bioenergy, an innovative waste handling start-up, that has developed a transformational waste collection and segregation methodology which is entirely market driven. The company will act as an enabler for waste processors like biogas generators or Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) generators.   Solid waste being dumped in the river is a huge challenge for the Government of India. Every day 68 million tonnes of waste is generated in India and only 19% is treated. The key challenge that is being addressed with this latest initiative is to provide efficient and cost-effective collection, segregation and transportation of waste.   The new trading platform will provide a ready spot market for trading waste. Generators of waste, irrespective of quantity can bring their waste to collection centres and get paid on the spot based on quantity and quality. This will enable a downstream waste-processing industry which relies on consistent and reliable supply of waste. It will also be used to generate income for industry workers who will benefit from a transparent and efficient market. The net result will be a super energised supply chain as every individual will now be super conscious of waste as it will be seen as a resource delivering on a “waste to wealth” economy. A number of commodity investors and traders are looking to back this Biomass Exchange platform as it will lead to process and product standardisation; effective biomass price establishment; a simple purchase process; an increase in market transparency and efficiency with clear and equal rules for all market participants; easy access to the market resulting in low barriers to entry for new market participants on the sell side; and systemic control of counterparty financial and technical capacity. Hirander Misra, Chairman & CEO of GMEX Group, commented, “We are delighted to be in Delhi and to present the venture at the India Water Impact Summit as part of this exciting sustainability initiative for which this project will lead to the de-layering and increased affordability and sustainability in usage of biomass.” He added, “We continue to focus on delivering innovation and emerging market solutions through a unique sustainable partnership-driven model.”   Navneet Mairal, CEO of GS Bioenergy (waste handling entity) and Transtradex (trade handling entity) commented “We are excited to launch this waste trading exchange platform here in India. We believe it will have a transformational effect on the region and expect it to be rolled-out in many other locations, locally as well as around the globe. He added “This platform has the potential of solving the twin issues of waste availability to waste processors on one end and environmental damage due to improper disposal of waste on the other end, after all what is “waste” if not a “resource” awaiting a viable marketplace?”

    The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) deepened ties with regulators in Hong Kong today signing two cooperation agreements to enhance collaboration in financial technology (FinTech) innovation. The agreements reinforce the existing strong relationship between the authorities in the two markets, which cooperate in the regulation of the financial services sector and FinTech businesses. The DFSA signed bilateral agreements with Hong Kong’s Insurance Authority (IA) and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), in Hong Kong. Under the terms of each agreement, the authorities will cooperate on information sharing and referrals of innovative businesses. The agreement with the HKMA extends to collaborating on joint innovation projects. Mr Ian Johnston, Chief Executive of the DFSA, said: “Our Agreement with the authorities in Hong Kong is indicative of the importance we place on maintaining a close relationship with Hong Kong’s financial services regulators. The signing of these agreements in FinTech is a natural next step to the collaboration we have in regulating traditional financial services.” The agreements follow the signing of a similar cooperation agreement between the DFSA and Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission in August. It means that the DFSA now has agreements in place with all three financial counterparts in the Special Administrative Region. Mr John Leung, Chief Executive Officer of the IA, said: “The IA takes proactive steps in strengthening collaboration with other jurisdictions in FinTech development. The agreement with DFSA signifies closer cooperation between the two authorities in fostering and creating business opportunities for FinTech firms on a global reach. The IA will consider signing similar cooperation agreements with insurance regulators in other jurisdictions.” Shu-Pui Li, Executive Director of the HKMA, said: “The cooperation agreement with DFSA showcases our efforts to work with the international FinTech community to facilitate the healthy development of the FinTech ecosystem. The HKMA will continue to explore potential collaboration opportunities with other authorities to support the upgrading of our banking system towards the higher level of Smart Banking.” These latest FinTech cooperation agreements form part of the DFSA’s innovation strategy, which complements the National Innovation Strategy, as set out by UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to make the UAE a global hub for innovation. In August, the DFSA launched the first tailored regime for loan and investment crowdfunding platforms in the GCC. In May, the DFSA launched its Innovation Testing Licence, a special class of financial services licence that allows FinTech firms to develop and test innovative FinTech concepts in or from the DIFC.
