At Maia we have developed our own research tools to help us mine the gigantic amount of data used to create and validate our models.
The Maia development environment operates under both Linux and Windows, so we have created our own system to optimise our R&D cycle. The Maia Build System allows us to seamlessly build our own software tools on both platforms. This system has wider potential application and could be useful to many companies with similar development needs. We may consider making it available for others to use.
For many years we have been collecting data relating to the two domains in which we work. We now have thousands of hours of pedestrian video footage and years of financial data representing millions of market state updates. In order to dig into these data we have developed our own databases and visualisation software, as well as simulation software allowing us to test and validate our models.
