Prospicious was a web application which fetched various nonstandard financial indicators, especially from social networks and let the user investigate their effect on stock price. The future plan was to develop a more fully featured analysis frontend so that the user could explore data correlations and do time series analysis. On the backend the goal was to use user classifications to train a machine learning system to provide a stock price outlook, which would then be provided to users in addition to the other data. The app was developed mostly in PHP using the yii framework. The UI was developed using Zurb’s foundation responsive css framework and the visualizations use the wonderful D3.js.
