In January 2003, James Rasmussen provided a brief history of WMO’s World Weather Watch for the WMO Bulletin. He recalled that, in April 1963, “Fourth World Meteorological Congress approved the concept of the World Weather Watch (WWW) and set the World Meteorological Organization on the journey that dramatically changed and enhanced the development of meteorology and the atmospheric sciences”. The advent of the space age was the spark that ignited this seminal event. Following the launches of Sputnik by the USSR in 1957 and TIROS by the USA in 1960, US President John F. Kennedy addressed the United Nations General Assembly, seeking ways to exploit the peaceful uses of outer space. The rest is history—as recorded in Rasmussen’s article.

The stockmarket is now run by computers, algorithms and passive managers

“Jump to 2017, when Google unveiled AlphaZero, a computer that had been given the rules of chess and then taught itself how to play. It took four hours of training to be able to beat Stockfish, the best chess machine programmed with human tactics. Intriguingly, AlphaZero made what looked like blunders to human eyes. For example, in the middlegame it sacrificed a bishop for a strategic advantage that became clear only much later.

Quant funds can be divided into two groups: those like Stockfish, which use machines to mimic human strategies; and those like AlphaZero, which create strategies themselves. For 30 years
quantitative investing started with a hypothesis, says a quant investor. Investors would test it against historical data and make a judgment as to whether it would continue to be useful. Now the order has been reversed. “We start with the data and look for a hypothesis,” he says.”
