Welcome to Pooksoft
At Pooksoft, we make products that let you get more from your data. Check out our repositories. If you see something you like, then clone it, fork it, do whatever! Or, if you want us to make you something contact us. We are a spin off company of the Varnerlab at Cornell University.
What projects are we working on?
At Pooksoft, we are interested in all things data; data analytics, data visualization and data driven medical/business simulations. Our core computational language is Julia (because its generally an order of magnitude faster than Python), and we love Swift for working in the Apple-verse. We are working on:
DataVisualizationKit: A Native Swift Plotting/Visualization Library. Pooksoft is developing an open source Swift library called DataVisualizationKit which is similar to Matplotlib. Even though we are (at best) indifferent to Python, we love Matplotlib. It makes awesome plots, we can call it from Julia using the PyPlot package, and it sticks it to the man (who in this scenario is Matlab). Why make a Swift version of this library? Simple, we want awesome data visualization on my iPhone and iPad! Check out the DataVisualizationKit project page.
Mathematical/simulation tools for financial markets. Pooksoft is developing algorithmic trading and financial market analysis tools for the iPad written in the Swift programming language. These tools calculate a variety of technical indicators from real-time financial data streams, and will use these indicators to evaluate algorithmic trading strategies. The application also make use of the open source DataVisualizationKit to bring awesome financial data visualizations to your devices.
Mathematical/simulation tools for clinical decision making. The Varnerlab has worked for over a decade on understanding the formation and degradation of blood clots, first at a biochemical level, and more recently at the whole body and clinical levels in a variety of wound types. We are implementing biochemical clot models on the iPad, which can act as clinical decision tools. We are also working on constraint based modeling tools for the iPad.
Mathematical/simulation tools for business process optimization. Pooksoft is developing constraint-based tools to optimize business processes.
Server-side Swift utilities. We are developing several server side Swift utilities to integrate Swift with various databases, including the graphical Neo4j database. We are also working to integrate Swift with Julia, so that we can do advanced computation directly from Swift.
