FEIII Challenges

The Financial Entity Identification and Information Integration (FEIII) Challenges are open data challenges in the finance space. Sign up to participate, download the data, follow the rules, submit your solution, and come talk about your work and future challenges at the DSMM Workshop

FEIII 2019 will be hosted at the Workshop on Data Science for Macromodeling (DSMM) with financial and socio-economic datasets, in conjunction with ACM SIGMOD 2019. DSMM 2019 will be held on Sunday June 30 in Amsterdam.

The 2018 challenge task was about understanding networks of financial entities and how those networks are documented and verified.

The 2017 challenge task focused on understanding the relationships among financial entities and the roles that they play in financial contracts as represented in documents and databases. The details and data is available here. Our 2016 challenge was aligning identifiers across databases, and now that we're done, you can get all the data for that too.
