Server code for open community microprediction at



The python packages called "microprediction" (user client library) and "rediz" (system implementation using redis as transport) are demonstrated at, where they make it easy for anyone who needs a live source of data predicted to receive help from clever humans and self-navigating time series algorithms.

They can then access history (e.g. and predictions (e.g. This is an easy way to normalize data and perform anomaly detection. Over time it may garner other insights such as assessment of the predictive value of the data stream the identities of streams that might be causally related.
