Conceptual Model

Numerai manages an institutional grade long/short global equity strategy for the investors in our hedge fund. They transform and regularize financial data into machine learning problems for their global network of data scientists.Their data scientists don't need capital, data, or finance domain knowledge to compete on Numerai. Numerai investors provide the capital, and Numerai embeds their finance domain knowledge into the design of their datasets.
