Here is a small glimpse into their world.
New treatments for rare genetic diseases
Recursion Pharmaceuticals combines biological science with advanced machine learning algorithms and interactive visualization to discover new therapeutic treatments for rare genetic diseases by drug repositioning. Recursion Pharmaceuticals has used this approach on 100 diseases, which requires 1.4e16 calculations to evaluate the 1,000 features for each cell in the 5000 experiments. The next step is scale up the process to evaluate thousands of diseases. Several promising treatments have been discovered so far!
Eradicating human trafficking
Human trafficking has surged as traffickers abuse the internet with temporary advertisements that are nearly impossible to trace. DARPA funded research estimates that traffickers spent $250 million to post more than 60M advertisements over just a two-year timeframe. To fight human trafficking, which is a key mission of the defense department, DARPA funded the Memex project. Using Anaconda open source software, DARPA is able to effectively scale the Memex solution with the ever-increasing web to index and cross-reference interactive and social media, text, images and video. These deep searches, combined with rich visualizations, identify patterns and connect the dots about typically elusive movements across locations. Reports by NYDA’s office attribute Memex to over 20 active sex trafficking investigations and nine open indictments.
Predicting the effects of public policy
The mission at the Open Source Policy Center (OSPC) is to create transparent tax policy advocacy by using an open source model. Proposed changes to tax policy involve predictions of changes to revenue and distribution of the tax burden. These predictions are based on proprietary models that are difficult for the public to scrutinize and debate. OSPC uses Anaconda to move proprietary SAS models into a performant, modern open source Python package that embodies current income tax law and permits others to make modifications, such as adding an additional tax credit or deduction. This is made publicly available via a web application that non-technical interested parties such as journalists and policy advocates use to create a potential tax policy change, visualize the effects, and easily share.
Maximizing Open Source
Hedge funds want to leverage the latest innovation in open source Python as the foundation for their trading platforms, but often struggle with internal management of open source development. For several hedge funds, leveraging the expertise of Anaconda has proven to be the way to manage packages, easily recreate environments with different versions, and stay up-to-date with the latest innovations in the Python community.
