What We're Building

Numerai is a global artificial intelligence tournament to predict the stock market. You download our data, build a model, and upload your predictions. Because we encrypt our datasets with structure-preserving encryption techniques, we're able to give away all of our data for free. This turns the stock market into a machine learning problem — so you don’t need to know anything about finance to participate.

We believe there is predictive power in distributed artificial intelligence — so we built a hedge fund for you, that’s going to trade your predictions. You don't need capital. You don't need data. You just apply your mind.

Add testimonials, product launches, and photos that highlight your company
