Jim Simons of RenTec speaks at MIT

Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies gives a talk at MIT about his background in mathematics, how he got his start in business, and the "secret sauce" of running a hedge fund with a quantitative bent.

As Paul Kedrosky notes on his blog, it's not often that you get to hear from Simons, so have a look at this video and hear what he has to say about his work, the importance of getting young people involved in math and science, and following your entrepreneurial drive.
