About this Event
The Numerai community meetup is essentially a platform for our community members to share their Numerai / general data science experience and to learn from each other. This is a free community event sponsored by the Numerai Council of Elders. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
We have already hosted similar events in London, New York, Tokyo, and Prague. Check out the materials from our past events here.
About the Venue - Startuptive
We will host our event at Startuptive - coworking office space in downtown Toronto downtown.
Event Goals and Objectives
- Demystifying - many top data scientists out there are just not too sure about the tournament format and/or the staking mechanism. Speaking with and listening to long-term participants can be an effective way to build trust.
- Knowledge sharing and brainstorming - although we may not share all our secret sauce, meetups are great opportunities to bounce ideas off each other and may lead to new models with high performance.
- Face-to-face discussions between the community and Numerai team - these events can provide a quick and direct feedback loop for both participants and the Numerai team.
Check out the original community event proposal here.
Numerai gives away obfuscated data for free to a global network of data scientists, who submit their predictions to contribute to the strategy of a global equity fund. They stake on their predictions as a show of confidence in their model. Good submissions are rewarded and bad submissions' stakes are burned.
