Lex Machina, Inc. began as a joint project between Stanford Law School and the Stanford Computer Science Department seeking to address the dearth of reliable data on IP litigation. Initiated by Professor Mark Lemley, the project sought to shed light on exorbitant jury verdicts, anomalous case filings, and other inconsistencies among federal district courts.
In order to study disparities and other trends in patent litigation, some of the world’s biggest technology companies and law firms funded a team of IP experts and leading computer scientists to map out every electronically available patent litigation event and outcome. The result of this collaboration was the IP Litigation Clearinghouse (IPLC), the most legally rigorous patent litigation database and search engine in the world. The IPLC was launched in December 2008 as a fully searchable web-based “almanac” on U.S. IP litigation.
Through close empirical study and cutting-edge technology, Lex Machina strives to provide historical legal intelligence to the world.

Founded in 1998 and led by Cliff Asness, AQR Capital Management, LLC is an investment management firm employing a disciplined multi-asset, global research process.

The research of AQR's principals is internationally recognized and has resulted in numerous published papers in a variety of professional journals since 1991.

Other packages have been added to the collection over time, including higher-level components and applications. We hope to evolve the project into an ecosystem of well-tested, well-documented components which interoperate easily.

IPython is an open source project that provides tools for interactive and parallel computing. It is best known for its enhanced Python shell whose features streamline interactive work: tab completion, integrated help, GUI toolkit support, system shell access, numbered prompts, command history and others.
A powerful new architecture for remote code execution has opened the door for a number of new IPython components. A Qt based console provides an IPython shell with inline figures, graphical calltips and persistent sessions. A high-performance, low-latency parallel computing framework provides abstractions for parallelizing Python code on multicore CPUs, clusters, supercomputers and the cloud. A web based notebook provides a user interface and open document format that mixes code with rich text, figures, mathematical equations and arbitrary HTML. Today,
IPython is included in all Linux distributions, and in the Enthought and Python(x,y) Distributions. It is part of Microsoft's Visual Studio Tools for Python and the PyCharm IDE, and is a component of a multitude of scientific computing projects in many disciplines, from mathematical environments to hardware control in large experimental facilities.
