Intern will develop Qualitative System Characterization method in two ways. First, it will help to generalize the method such that it may be applied to a variety of systems spanning various fields. Second, it will help explore the possibility of a multi-dimensional Qualitative System Characterization. Beyond the MPG specific benefits, intern will provide Arjae Spectral Enterprises a generalized Qualitative System Characterization method which could be employed to various other projects.
Our objectives are to research, develop, test, and implement:
1. New yield curve construction and smoothing algorithms and improvements to standard curve construction algorithms, in particular, that are better adapted to illiquid markets such as Mexico, Israel, etc. 2. We seek fully automated real-time curve construction algorithms, which will allow for traders to use and data vendors to provide curves evolving in real time.

“We’re inventing something new with every contract we take,” explains Corrie Iskra, President of NexLev Solutions. “Companies come to us with problems no one can solve.”
The internship will investigate existing techniques and languages to analyze, describe and visualize motion, movement or flow characteristics in a number of different fields and application areas including optical flow for video and visual effects, and Laban Motion Analysis for physical movement. The goal is to draw on existing approaches to define a language to describe motion in 2D art images, and for the purpose of manipulating images to better suit different compositions and spatial layouts.
The intern, along with his collaborator will explore both theoretically and empirically models of influence over social networks, recommendation systems of online content for users in social networks. Additionally, the intern will study various different ways to cluster and group the content of networks such as Twitter in an automated fashion. Additionally, the intern plans to study various different algorithmic problem the pertain to information retrieval and online content.
