My favourite bit of Taleb the past few years - deep nettles learn well because they get convex payoffs just like us options traders, bro! https://t.co/UEMncZaCpi

He’s literally trying to make the case that deep nets are a robust forecasting tool. Surely you have to at least fit one neural net to some real data before writing a 10 tweet thread about hockey sticks.
