Visixion has developed with\n[DEXISION]( the first full fledged derivatives\nanalytics suite with Python as core language.\n\nDEXISION is an On Demand application that is completely Open Source based\n(LAMP). For derivatives valuation, it uses Monte Carlo simulation - an\napproach known to be computationally demanding. However, Numpy provides the\nperformance and functionality needed to implement financial simulation\nalgorithms in a fast and compact manner.\n\nThe talk illustrates the architecture of our analytics suite and demonstrates\nhow to implement fast and compact simulation algorithms with Python and Numpy.\nThe talk shows that the Python/Numpy combination reaches sufficient speed for\nproductive financial applications - something still widely doubted.\n\n[No prerequisites.]\n\n", "quality_notes": "", "copyright_text": "Standard YouTube License", "embed": "<object width=\"640\" height=\"390\"><param name=\"movie\" value=\";hl=en_US\"></param><param name=\"allowFullScreen\" value=\"true\"></param><param name=\"allowscriptaccess\" value=\"always\"></param><embed src=\";hl=en_US\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" width=\"640\" height=\"390\" allowscriptaccess=\"always\" allowfullscreen=\"true\"></embed></object>", "thumbnail_url": "", "duration": null, "video_ogv_length": null, "video_ogv_url": null, "video_ogv_download_only": false, "video_mp4_length": null, "video_mp4_url": null, "video_mp4_download_only": false, "video_webm_length": null, "video_webm_url": null, "video_webm_download_only": false, "video_flv_length": null, "video_flv_url": null, "video_flv_download_only": false, "source_url": "", "whiteboard": "", "recorded": "2011-07-13", "added": "2012-08-30T21:02:46", "updated": "2014-04-08T20:28:27.806" }
