About Valorem Final Project represents the concept of making the information gathering process more effective and more efficient. Conceived from the frustrations faced at a CMBS trading desk of having to quickly research numerous properties for news that may or may not exist on a commercial real estate property, Valorem combines automated Google searches and text filtering procedures to return only those articles that are relevant to “value events.” Using natural language processing techniques and a clean, crisp view for the user, Valorem offers traders and analysts the possibility of receiving a significantly higher proportion of relevant news articles in a fraction of the time it would take to replicate the same process using traditional manual Google searches.
About Torus Final Project Torus connects young people in the US with development programs to activate productive futures. We’re building a technology solution to increase awareness of and access to programs while giving youth a voice in program evaluation and improvement.
Babybills' Althea Smith built a database and Django REST Framework API for New York development programs, incorporating PostGIS to enable location-based searches.
