We’re back! After a slight hiatus, Linear Labs is back on the grind showing off our open source tech — BLOX, and how we can build an AI app to trade stocks. If you need caught up, feel free to check out our last article where we introduced BLOX and demonstrated how easy it is to build a neural network. In this article we’re going to be demonstrating a new addition to the library — Reinforcement Learning, and how to be your own Wolf of Wall Street using machine learning. …


This is the first installment of a multi-part series drilling deep into Linear Labs’ new and exciting technology — BLOX. Throughout this series we highlight how to implement this new framework, create and test prototypes, and how to go from wild and crazy ideas to actual products in less than an hour. Let’s jump right into it!

Wait, I lied…

Before we get too far into the weeds, let’s first discuss what BLOX is and what it can do for you. BLOX is an opensource library dedicated to automating design and deployment of machine learning models.

The real question to…
