  • BitFear: fear indeces for cryptocurrencies

    Develop a volatility index for cryptocurrencies

  • Deep Learning orderbook models for digital assets

    Digital assets (cryptocurrencies) have a far more relaxed regulatory oversight than traditional financial instruments, which means that their orderbooks have a variety of complex phenomena that don’t occur in traditional markets

  • Crypto Markets: The future of trend following

    A research study into the investment returns from trend following strategies in the burgeoning digital asset markets (“cryptocurrencies”).

  • Bitcoin: commodity or currency? A study of price returns

    Bitcoin is often branded as a currency, but its price returns tell a different story. This is a project into the changing nature of cryptocurrency holding returns

  • Econometrics modelling for public equities

    Modeling relationships with the stock price of a company and fundamental forecasts (of eg. revenue, profit etc) to isolate a driver that is the best fit.

  • Predicting startup success based on historical data

    SyndicateRoom has launched a new venture fund that aims to use data to identify the most promising startups to invest in.

  • Designing an Automated Marine Steering System

    Designing a low cost auto pilot aiming system for small boats and rowing boats using the computing power on a mobile phone. Proposed by the Founder of Hawk-eye - Paul Hawkins

  • Scalable Machine Learning on Massive Images

    Developing novel methods to enable scalable production-ready deep learning pipeline on massive image data.

  • Analysing Videos to Find Soft Skill Indicators

    Interviewer.AI would like to create an assessment algorithm to measure key traits/skills that act as a predictor of job performance.
