Numerai (NMR), is an AI-powered hedge fund that is based on the Ethereum platform. Their goal is to become the first collaborative, networked resource that allows data scientists to participate and earn based on the performance of their data models.
You need to be able to build and train machine learning programs to compete on the Numerai platform. You are provided with an initial data set that you can use to set the baseline, but at this point, it is just you, your data, and your program.
Through an auction system detailed in their white paper, Numerai allocates rewards for a weekly tournament, based on the performance of models generated by the scientists. In one of their videos, these competitions are described as pure math-based games, which offer real cash prizes to top-performing data scientists.
