I need a machine learning Python script to manage the following data: Inputs of the algorithm: - “n” input vectors with “m” input values for each vector (n x m matrix); inputs are float values - “m” target values (0,1 values only) Goal of the script must be to “predict” the next “target value” (0 or 1) Key point: - algorithm must be trained on provided inputs/target - algorithm must predict the next target value - algorithm must provide accuracy of prediction based on training data (backtesting accuracy) Delivery must include fully working Python code, to be run in Anaconda environment. If project will be successful will start a long-term collaboration. Please feel free to ask details.

Hi, I need someone with excellent ms excel skills to create about 30 different graphs from an excel spreadsheet containing about 100 columns. You will need to know time/date functions to calculate datediff's in military time and date and be able to graph qualitative and quantitative data. Also, graphs should be able to auto update as new data is manually entered into the sheet. We will need this project very quickly, unfortunately. Thank you, Kourtney

Our group has an opportunity to work with the UK IT Services market and I want to understand it better. In particular I want to understand the background and trends. From our initial research using Companies House data, we have found that there are approximately 8200 companies in the UK with a revenue/turnover ranging from £500k to £10m. For our work, we define "IT Services" as companies that provide any or all of the following services: Managed Support Provider (MSP), IT Consultancy, IT Projects, Software development and/or design, IT break fix support, outsourced IT, IT resellers of software or hardware. * Firstly, is this number of 8200 companies still accurate? * Secondly, what was the size of the UK IT Services market 3 years ago, and in particular, what was the number of the companies within this turnover range? (Has the number of these companies gone up or down?) * Thirdly, what is the revenue/turn over of these companies? (Eg, 8200 companies in a range of 500k to 10m is either £4.1 billion per year through to £82 billion - that's a big spread so narrowing it down is needed.) To complete this job, you'll need to answer the above three questions and provide solid data, or references to credible sources that can prove this to suspicious bankers, investors, etc (these are the people we are talking to, so the data needs to convince them.) As such, a background in the UK finance world may be of benefit, but is certainly NOT mandatory. A data geek is preferred - someone who loves data, knows where it lives and can get hold of it. That is the base level of the job. However, we are also offering bonuses paid for answering any or all of the following questions. - What was the number of companies both before and after the 2007 crash? (Eg answering the question, "what happened to the market during the last crash?") - What is the market number of these companies in any of the following markets: France, Germany, Western or Eastern Europe, or Europe as a whole, the Middle East. - What is the growth of these companies per year? Eg, showing an average growth of x% is ok; as is pointing out stellar examples of specific companies that had very high growth of y% (you can use either turn over or profit for this point). Major bonus for pointing out WHY those stellar companies did so well compared to their peers. - A list of the bigger companies with turnovers over £10m. Please put "Data Geeks Rule" at the top of your response so I know you are human and have read this post. Lastly, the amount specified is just a recommended amount. If you feel you can do a GREAT job and your price is higher, sell me on it why I will get better value from you doing that.

I am working for a startup/app company that is trying to assign a dollar value to virtually every apartment in New York City, based on several unique characteristics of our users. What we need is a model that predicts the unique value to YOU (the user) of each apartment, based on factors like where you work (commute time) and the locations of other places that you frequently visit (the address of a girlfriend/boyfriend for example, or perhaps an entertainment venue that you frequently visit). The model’s inputs might include: 1. How much you (the user) value your time. This can be represented in $ per hour. 2. Apartment address 3. Apartment’s advertised monthly rental rate 4. Workplace address 5. Location #3 address 6. Location #4 address 7. ….. 8. Location #n address Also keep in mind, we already have built a program that takes physical addresses and calculates the travel time between them in real-time. So if you had just two locations (home and work), we could calculate the average morning commute time and the average evening commute time from this program. Thus, a simple base case formula might look something like this: V = P – 20*(T1*W + T2*W) – C Where V is the value of this particular apartment to YOU, represented in dollars per month, P is this apartment’s advertised monthly rent (in dollars per month), 20*(T1*W + T2*W) – C represents the value lost from having to commute, as opposed to just living at work, 20 is the number of days per month most people work, T1 is the morning commute time, T2 is the evening commute time, W is your approximate hourly wage (or how much you value your time), and C is the cost of commuting (e.g. a train pass). As you can see however, as soon as Location #3 is added, the model becomes a bit more complex. For this project, I need a skilled and experienced mathematician to design an algorithm around this more complex scenario. Also the outputs have to be realistic. For example, no apartment can have a value that is negative…you just would never rent those! For the scope of the project, let’s keep it focused mainly on commute time for now, since the number of inputs could otherwise be virtually limitless. Also, please definitely provide graphs and charts, if you are capable, to display the output in various scenarios. I am a very visual person, so this would help me understand your solution. The ultimate solution can be in plain English or using a computer program, but must be easily understandable by me and my software team. Please contact me (Darrick) if you are interested in helping out or have any questions. Let’s make history together with a new product that will help serve nearly every renter in New York City! P.S. Also let me know if you see an easy solution right away. For all I know, this could be a common Ops Research problem that I just have not studied yet. EDIT 2-11-2016: Hello everyone! Just to clarify, I am mainly interested in someone to help with the algorithm and/or mathematical formula for this computation. Not the actual programming (we already have programmers to implement it in-house). I also do not currently have a data set to provide. We are still trying to acquire the data. We simply need a way to model the problem I have described above, in the case where there are more than 2 locations. For now we are strictly looking at commute times as the inputs. Obviously an apartment valuation model could include thousands of other variables like floor/story, square footage, year of construction, etc. etc. But we do not want to include those until later on, once we have the commute time part figured out. Thanks! I have been reading your applications and hope to pick someone by this weekend at latest. -Darrick
