We need a talented programmer to perform an extension to a piece of software that we have. Our program extracts past results and standings for football (soccer) games from a website, and then the program makes predictions about the results of future games. The program currently makes predictions for pre-match lines, such as 1X2 (i.e. home/tie/away), over/under lines, etc.
We would like to extend the program so that it also helps us with *live* betting on football games.
To be qualified, you must be knowledgable in:
- Programming (Java strongly preferred).
- Data mining and extraction, especially file processing.
- Data analysis, especially extrapolation from data.
- Understanding of betting and odds.
We emphasize that you will be EXTENDING an existing software, NOT reimplementing it. We just want it to extract new types of data to predict new types of results. The current program is executed from the command line, and the source code is composed of a few Java classes. The output of the program is in the form of text and csv files. It already has (for example) functionality for downloading HTML pages and processing them, and functionality for performing linear extrapolation. Also, the program's usage is documented in a step-by-step readme file.
In short, we need a programmer who is able to examine the existing codebase and understand it to the point where they can implement the extensions we want. Those extensions basically involve more data scraping from [url removed, login to view], and additional types of prediction outputs.
Eventually, we'd like the program converted so that it has a GUI and its outputs are easier to view, rather than us having to launch it from the command line.
