Doubtless there have been so many advances in programming, programs, and computing speed over the past 15 years. In those mist-laden days of DOS and slow speeds I trained and ran one neural network for gold price prediction. It was amazingly excellent for quite a while, and then failed. I did not have the ability to train and run multiple nets simultaneously and still look forward with additional training for 200-400 nets and keep it all under close observation and control.
I was dubious for quite a while about your constant research toward bettering your networks, tending to consider it as over-optimizing of the past. But you have convinced me otherwise.
Keep up the good work!
