Capstone – Project

Help pioneer radically low cost bespoke prediction

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

Intech Investments (top 5 equity fund in the US) and other companies are starting to use a new, radically different way of enhancing their real-time operations. Rather than use humans to guide algorithms to problems, they instead publish live data and have algorithms, contributed by anyone, anywhere, come to find it.

More about:

Specific project proposal:
Students will gain experience creating live data streams and also launching “crawlers” which find live data and predict it. They can take advantage of the teach/student collaboration features of PythonAnywhere. This will give them an opportunity to directly impact businesses in real-time, while also gaining familiarity with some issues associated with real-time analytics.

Other possible contributions:
Some other ways students can contributed are listed here:
