The Most Valuable AI Research Tool of the Year?

Data Mastery with the Power of Julius AI

Like many of you, I've often found myself drowning in spreadsheets, charts, and endless data sets, searching for insights that seemed just out of reach.

The vast and complex data analysis was a maze and I was avoiding it. At the same time I felt like I was missing out on a secret everyone else knew.

This discovery is a happy accident, after years of trial, failure and frustration and the haunting feeling that I’m just 3 feet from gold.

The Struggle with Spreadsheets and Coding

I remember the days spent wrestling with data analysis; they required me to learn basic coding, the underlying driver software, and unforgiving of errors.

I gave up in frustration more times than I can count.

My friend suggested a costly advanced statistical software and the free trial left me more bewildered than when I started.

I questioned my ability to ever master these skills.

When I tried to hire coding help, the communication never ended up getting me the working solution I was wanting.

My skepticism grew each day, but my problem was not solved. I still envisioned the end I was seeking - without knowing how to get there, I was disillusioned.

Enter Julius AI—this discovery that might just be the "data scientist in your pocket" that every researcher dreams about.

The Revelation of Julius AI

But my breakthrough came when a video by Dr. Andy Stapleton introduced me to some of the capacities of of Julius AI.

Initially, I was impressed, but it took a few days for my own questions to reflect on what this tool might do for me— could an AI platform transform my understanding of my trading system?

The promise of an intuitive, self-correcting tool that could transcribe, analyze, and visualize data was too tantalizing to ignore.

I really had no idea what Julius AI would do with my simple data sets.

I decided to give it a shot, not fully understanding it could be the solution I needed.

A First Studies

My first approach to using Julius AI mirrored past experiences with other AI Tools.

I want to learn from others before I start experimenting with my own AI’s prompts, and get directly to results faster. 

I use AI Tools to research and summarize, but also to find the thought leaders in the industry for this topic.

Even before I start, I am not alone.

This AI assisted research of platform’s support system and user community, guided me to fantastic mentors who teach some of the best practices right out of the gate.

Universities Teach Julius AI

Rice University offers a course titled MGMT 675 - AI Assisted Financial Analysis, which is part of the curriculum at the Jones Graduate School of Business. This course is specifically designed to integrate AI tools, including Julius AI, into financial analysis frameworks.

The course provides a hands-on learning experience, enabling students to use advanced AI tools like Julius AI to perform financial analyses that were traditionally done using spreadsheets. The course aims to enhance the students' ability to make informed financial decisions by leveraging AI technologies.

The inclusion of Julius AI in this course at Rice University exemplifies the growing trend of integrating AI tools into higher education curriculums, particularly in specialized areas such as financial analysis.

This approach not only equips students with cutting-edge technological skills but also prepares them for the evolving demands of the finance industry where AI and machine learning are becoming increasingly prevalent.

The realization dawned that Julius AI wasn’t just a tool but a partner in analysis.

The Turning Point: Learning and Adapting

Resolved to master Julius AI, I delved deeper.

I explored its features, engaged with the community, and shared my process so that others like me can not just to use the tool, but to excel with it.

Success with Julius AI

Now, let's talk about the turning point.

Putting Julius AI to work on my Altcoin Season Data (midjourney image by author)

In a recent project, I used Julius AI to analyze years of Altcoin Season data from the cryptocurrency markets.

First I exported the data from google docs, then I dragged that file into Julius.

The next step was to experiment with a basic prompt to see if it will create similar graphs to what I’ve already made in our spreadsheet.

And - after a few prompts, I have to say wow.

I have color-coded the scatter plot to indicate the strength of the relationship between "Alert" and "Hold" over time. The color gradient represents the rolling correlation strength, with warmer colors indicating stronger correlations.

Here is the enhanced scatter plot:

The line plot for "Alert" and "Hold" columns from 2020 to the present has been successfully updated with color coding based on the rolling correlation strength. This color gradient visually represents the strength of the relationship over time.

Here is the updated color-coded line plot:

The color-coded line plot for the "Alert" and "Hold" columns, limited to the year 2024, has been successfully created. This plot uses a color gradient to indicate the rolling correlation strength between these two variables throughout the year.

Here is the color-coded line plot for 2024:

This is powerful to visually SEE when our system is highlighting the key turning points that our system tracks.

The easy chart visualizations that had once took hours to set up are now at my fingertips, I can see inside my data with simple clarity.

It is an eye-opening moment that leaves me curious to explore more.  

The data is also a small validation and triumph—not just for me, but for the entire team who had collected the data on 300 coins, every day for several years.

As my competence grows with AI Tools, so does my confidence to explore.

Empowering Others Through Experience

This journey taught me that the right tools can change everything by providing the answers to our questions, faster.

Julius AI isn’t just about handling data—it's about unlocking potential.

It empowers researchers and data enthusiasts to focus on what really matters: the stories behind the data and the decisions they inform.

Conclusion: A Call to Explore

If you've struggled like I did, I encourage you to explore Julius AI.

It’s more than an analytical tool; it’s a gateway to mastering the digital landscape of data.

The path from data to insights doesn't have to be daunting—it can be a journey of discovery and empowerment.
