We need someone to help create a matching algorithm. this algorithm will take experiences from a profiles page and match them to a task and task description. This algorithm will match results to various weights and give a profile a matching percentage value. Algorithm must be written in PHP for a wordpress / buddypress website.

Hi, We have 2 application running at client side. We need to integrate either 'tesseract' or any better OCR open source application which can convert 2 documents (PAN CARD and VOTER ID card) into text. We would like to have it as real time thing. In case of some 5-10% error in processing team will handle. Need suggestion plus integration so the person or team has handle such issue in past can revert. We do have some code with us, which gives a better idea. Our web platform is in Python and DB we are using MongoDB. Best

Using, General learning algorithm from Numenta.org , Forex prices and Astro Data, create interface to predict Forex up close or down close for next period, This information would then be exported to Metarader MT4 as an indicator AI Engine developed from from http://numenta.org/#start Astro Engine From http://www.astro.com/swisseph/swephinfo_e.htm - swetest.exe Have existing program that programmers can have a look at if required Sample Template http://screencast.com/t/jlbcjI5JV Thanks of your interest Peter

I have created a non-linear constrained optimisation algorithm in excel to solve a finance problem. However, excel and the various plug-ins I have used are extremely inefficient. I now want help to write the algorithm in a more efficient language/program. The idea would be that I can understand and use the finished product. A brief description of the algorithm: There is a simple objective function/equation that needs to be maximised. There are 100 input variables which are weightings of stocks that make up a portfolio. The objective function is quadratic with respect to these inputs. There are a number of constraints placed on the model that must be satisfied for the maximised objective function (again, some are non-linear). There is also a very large dataset that feeds into the objective functions and constraints - these are mostly exogenous however there is a 100x100 matrix multiplication that can make the computation slow. Effective engagement would start with me explaining...

We want a script that will run on a Linux server and read a single long PDF document containing documents similar to those in link below and return a JSON with extracted data. Data to extract: - Violation Number - License Plate - Date - Amount / Toll Due Sample PDFs: http://104.236.66.8/buggy/pdf_tickets.zip The uploaded documents will be the same in the link but will have different data for Violation Number, License Plate etc. Script should preferably be in PHP and use Tesseract OCR engine. Here is PHP class for Tesseract: https://github.com/thiagoalessio/tesseract-ocr-for-php If this doesn't work well then another language would be fine. You would be provided root access to a Ubuntu server and be responsible for setting everything up.

Summary of the trading algo I am located in the US and would the trading algo is based on US indices. The trading algo uses the SPX/VIX NDX/VXN and RUT/RVX pairs to trigger entry and exit points to sell (entry) and buy (exit) credit spreads on the SPX, NDX and RUT indices. Strike prices are determined by using calculations of the SPX/VIX NDX/VXN and RUT/RVX pairs. The entry conditions must first be met by a proprietary averaging of ~40 indicators (RSI, MACD, Williams r, ect.). The trading algo will need to be coded along with the code to execute the trade autonomously. The automated trading strategy will first need to run using a paper trading account and then with actual funds. The orders will need to be limit orders. Ideally the code would need to implement some sort of “smart” buying and selling in which orders are submitted and cancelled until the order is successfully executed. The limit price would be slightly higher than the bid/ask spread. Market orders are not wanted...

I have a data set of about 15 000 annual reports in PDF formats. I Have get about 1200 new reports/week. I need to do three things with this data set. This may be solved by using existing open source software, licensed soft ware or build something new. 1. Build a process tool to convert PDF->Word+Excel. Find a way to automise this. 2. Build a tool to search through PDF and find all annual reports that contain a specific word or phrase 3. Find and extract KPI:s from income statement and balance sheet and extract to a database.
