Numerai manages an institutional grade long/short global equity strategy for the investors in our hedge fund. We transform and regularize financial data into machine learning problems for our global network of data scientists. Our data scientists don't need capital, data, or finance domain knowledge to compete on Numerai. Numerai investors provide the capital, and Numerai embeds our finance domain knowledge into the design of our datasets. Because Numerai data scientists do not know what our data represents, human biases and overfitting are overcome. Numerai does not know what algorithms our data scientists are using because data scientists only upload predictions—their code and intellectual property remains theirs. This trustless relationship between Numerai and our data scientists is facilitated by encryption, and anonymity. Data scientists do not need to tell us who they are, and receive payments in Ethereum.
