The publisher heads the Catastrophe Modeling & Global-Growth Surveillance Observatory at CVA -- Powered by Quantum-Behavioral Trading Technology, derived partly from two US patents, both invented and assigned to Efrem Hoffman (2000 and 2001; accessible at US Patent Office website under Quicksearch -- enter first and last name; both patent titles start with the word Hierarchical). Real-Time tweets of Behavioral Market Insight are available on many primary financial news sites that TAG Financial stock tickers with time-sensitive Just-In-Time Commentary. Based in Toronto, the publisher has a deep conviction for writing time-sensisitve commentary, trend-pieces, and investing oppinion-focused posts that challenge conventional thinking and legacy market-analysis, especially when it comes to analyzing emergent trends and Super-Anomalies of the marketplace. He brings a broad business technology and strategic investment vision to the companies he counsels. While consulting for and collaborating with industry experts on financial trading, order execution, electronic trading room design, real-time data management, and extreme event modeling; he has gained over 13 years experience researching and developing intelligent analytic and multi-dimensional visualization solutions for the next generation of financial wealth management platforms. Mr. Hoffman is a recognized inventor of smart-data analysis and self-thinking soft-computing machines, with working applications, and patents that have been cited internationally on over 60 instances on Patent Applications of: Fortune 500 Companies, preeminent governmental agencies, scientific think-tanks, including leading practitioners at ivy-league academic institutions. Prior to applying these technologies to CVAs mission-critical and time-sensitive Portfolio Defense and Risk-Intelligence Analysis of Global-Macro Trends & Sector Rotation, the applications ranged from Early-Warning Alert Systems for Environmental Catastrophe Prediction -- Aviation Forecasting of Wind-Shear Hazards and Tornados – to Quantum Encryption of Sensitive Information and Mission-Critical Data. These methods can also been applied to Earthquake and Avalanche Forecasting, as well as 3D Image Recognition of MRIs and Radiological Scans. One common thread that has remained constant throughout Mr. Hoffman’s practice is his unwavering commitment and passion for exploiting mathematics and the knowledge of nature to better understand the leading mechanisms that cause complex, large-scale networks of many interacting agents – financial, social, or physical -- to abruptly shift from periods of stability and growth, to unstable regimes of extreme turbulence and decay.
