Capstone – Project

Help build the open source prediction network

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

We’ve built a network of real-time data and algorithms to make low-cost, high-quality predictions accessible and useful. Getting predictions is as simple as publishing data to our platform where competing, state-of-the art algorithms converge on optimized predictions. Micropredictions LLC is a subsidiary of Intech Investments, a top five U.S. Equity fund manager by a variety of metrics. Micropredictions LLC is established to foster development of the world's first microprediction network and its use by organizations large and small. We support the open source software development both directly, and through contributor incentives. We host the first node at www.microprediction.org, where you will find an API can be used to predict literally anything. We help companies or organizations get up to speed with usage patterns, including privacy preserving use of public prediction, and the techniques linking repeated prediction and business optimization. In this project, student would learn how to write and deploy programs that directly address real-time operational problems. These would predict quantities such as electricity (https://www.microprediction.com/competitions/electricity) or cryptocurrency movements. Students would also be able to create intelligent applications, such as a web page, that uses the turnkey prediction API to drive intelligence, thus pioneering new ways to exploit cheap prediction.
