Craibs Numerai is the only hedge fund worth paying attention to IMO.
A sign you're ahead of the curve, when not even IBT covers you when listing ones to watch in this domain
"eliminate negative competition" sounds kinda goofy, but enjoyed the video ..
Their whitepaper and richards talk on twist does the project more justice, but thought the video would be easier to digest as the whole concept itself is generally highly technical.
When Numerai started out there were theories floating around the ether that the data sets being supplied for the tournaments weren't financial but instead were related to counter-terrorism.
Not all that far fetched when you consider the data is purely rows of floats in a csv.
