Developer Garfield Brown has made two interesting contributions to code.kx.com that could be very helpful for kdb+ programmers.

The first is a python module mirroring the qserver for R code.

The second is an interface to the publicly available minpack solver for non linear equationswith an application to non linear least squares model fitting.

The code and a small example is in Garfield Brown’s contribution section on the Kx wiki.



The Exploration of Solar Storm Data Using JupyterQ

7 Jun 2018 | , , , ,

At Kx25, the international kdb+ user group conference held on May 18th, I made a presentation that demonstrated how to use a JupyterQ notebook to perform analytics on solar storm data.
My experience working with solar storm data began last year when I was a visiting data scientist at the NASA Frontier Development Lab (FDL) in Mountain View, California. The FDL is hosted by the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI): a not-for-profit research organization founded in 1984, whose purpose is to drive research in the space sciences. Within SETI, FDL is an applied artificial intelligence research accelerator established to maximize new AI technologies and apply them to challenges in the space sciences.
