Business model

I learned about business models which I feel should have been the first thing I learned since that will be important to have a solid foundation. I was able to create my own business plan.

Next I started a business plan detailing what my business is going to be, major expenses, what makes me unique, and my target audience.

3D Modeling/printing continuation

I continued withe tutorials. I was able to create a trophy today which I am very proud of. 3D designs can be very tedious. One new thing that I learned today was how to properly measure the dimensions of the lines and how to save current work without deleting my previous work. Although this is an interesting module,I do not like this idea because there is no guarantee that consumers will buy my creations. In addition the printing will not be cost effective for me. I am looking forward to starting a different module

3d modeling /printing

Platforms that allows creators to make 3d designs are Tinkercad and Blender 28. I worked on Tinkercad which I liked because it let me design things and it is straight forward. It allowed me to make custom crafts and personalized things I still do not understand how profit can be made from the designs. I did not get up to this module yet. I am currently following along with the tutorials and creating as I am learning

I learned about the responsibilities of someone who develops artificial intelligence. There are 6 branches such as machine learning which allows computers to learn without having to program it. neural network which allows artificial intelligence to use neurology as a template to mimics brain system functions. Robotics which allows the building of machines to do tedious tasks. Expert systems were one of the first artificial intelligence created; they are designed to mirror the decision making of an intelligent human/ expert. Fuzzy logic asses uncertain information to try to come up with a reason; to can be used to figure out the root of phenomenons and things under that umbrella. Lastly, natural language processing which help facilitate communication between human langue and computer language

a product manager is someone who listens to their customers and create products to solve them. This requires perseverance and creativity. It is something I am interested in. It allows me to be both constitious and creative. product managers are the back bones of a company and may have slot of pressure on them. Some tips I received today were to be able to listen to others and communicate with a variety of people. I also started the producer module I thought this was interesting because it is a heavily male populated industry. It may be harder and it is something that many people get professional training for; maybe one day it could be more than a hobby for me

Options trading

I learned about options trading which is having the authority to buy or sell the contract of a stock at a set price. It is more volatile than selling sticks but the profit gain Is greater. One platform that can be used to trade options is robin hood. Two components of a option is a call and a put. A call is predicting that the price of the stock will increase while the a put is predicting that the rice will decrease; If correct you gain profit more than just buying shares of a stock. There are many strategies for predicting a call or a put and greek letters that help with predictionl I am looking into trading options but I want to do my research first.
