Jim Simons was a mathematician and cryptographer who realized: the complex math he used to break codes could help explain patterns in the world of finance. Billions later, he’s working to support the next generation of math teachers and scholars. TED’s Chris Anderson sits down with Simons to talk about his extraordinary life in numbers.

The person who is sitting on the chair is "THE Jim Simons" so it's extremely difficult to ask him questions. BTW that guy is Chris Anderson (Curator and CEO of TED) the best man for the job, even though he had not been actively involved that role for almost a decade.

What's really interesting about the Medallion fund is that they won't be trading against any retail order flow as that is all with Citadel, susquehanna etc. So that means all the money they make every year is taking from so called professionals in hedge funds, and sadly our pension funds!

The host/interviewer (Chris Anderson) ruins it. Wish they would let a competent person interview Jim Simons.
