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 2018 Workshop.
The 2018 challenge task is 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.
The FEIII Challenge has been supported by grants from the Office of Financial Research (OFR), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Science Foundation and is sponsored by the University of Maryland.
FEIII challenges are open to anyone that wishes to participate. You agree that the data will be used for the challenge and follow-on research only, and that you will not advertise using the challenge results. All data, challenge results, and publications are available for free to anyone.
