This year our projects were under NumFOCUS umbrella. We thanks NumFOCUS for their support and we want to highlight their other Google Summer of Code projects.
Dynamic Topic Models for Gensim
Upgrade to datapackage.json standard for EcoData Retriever
Akash Goel, under the mentoring of Henry Senyondo and Ethan White, worked on EcoData Retriever that now is compatible with Datapackage.JSON standard when saving the scripts that retrieved the data requested by the user. Also, now EcoData Retriever works with Python 3.
Improving the state of Optim.jl for JuliaOpt
Patrick Kofod Mogensen, under the mentoring of Miles Lubin, worked on JuliaOpt that now has a faster implementation of Simulated Annealing solver. Also, now JuliaOpt’s documentation includes tons of examples.
Presolve Routines for LP and SDP within Convex.jl for JuliaOpt
Ramchandran Muthukumar, under the mentoring of Madeleine Udell, worked on JuliaOpt MathProgBase that provides high-level one-shot functions for linear and mixed-integer programming. Ramchandran’s work focus on the presolving the linear and mixed-integer programming problems, a important step to improve benchmarks.
