July 29, 2020

We talk about building a 150 year startup in Web 3 from first principles with Richard Craib, Founder of Numerai, and why he chose to apply himself to solving what he sees in the ultimate mathematical problem: creating ‘the last hedge fund’, through ‘the hardest data science tournament in the world’. We also discuss his approach of crowdsourcing equities trading models through a network of data scientists, and the power of the convergence of blockchain + AI in open data marketplaces.
