INTRODUCTION TO THE CHALLENGE

Welcome to the website of the  Machine Learning Generation Challenge.

Join the  Machine Learning revolution now !

 

Artificial intelligence, deep learning, chatbot, NLP … whether you are familiar with these notions or they evoke obscure and expert concepts, no one can ignore Machine Learning and the hopes it conveys. This notion, which may be perceived as yet another buzzword in the digital field, actually already represents a concrete reality in terms of tools and applications. The algorithms used in Machine Learning overturn the paradigm of predictive modeling: it is up to the algorithm to adapt automatically to the data, and not the data that must fit into a model designed under the supervision of a statistician. This data-driven approach makes it possible for us to process large amounts of complex data and to obtain significant performance improvements on many tools (translation, recommendation, image recognition…).

The Machine Learning Generation Challenge is a unique opportunity for you, student or recent graduate, to come up with an innovative use of Machine Learning technology in the field of Financial Services. You will get the chance to put it into a theoretical perspective as well as putting it into practice within real project conditions: from the reflection process to the study of impacts (Business Case) to the implementation of your project (Proof Of Concept or development of a prototype). Are you a novice in Machine Learning? Do not worry, you can still participate in the challenge and your team will be coached during every phase of the contest by a mentor who can either be a consultant or a major player in innovation.

During various events, you will also have the chance to meet the mentors and the organizers of the challenge and exchange views on your progression. You can find all the information about the Machine Learning Generation coaches in the “Jury” section of the website.

Machine Learning Generation Challenge gives participants the possibility to earn up to  7 000 € (1st prize), 5 000 € (2nd prize) or  3 000 € (3rd prize).

Key information

The competition is open to all  students or recent graduates (graduated less than 2 years ago), either  alone or as a  team (up to 3 people).

After a registration phase, which takes place from 11/08/2017 to 12/31/2017, the participants will be asked to develop a disruptive concept of Machine Learning application to the sector of Financial Services presenting it under the format of a  Business Case. This document will have to be sent before 12/31/2017 midnight to  generation-learning-machine@sia-partners.com with each member of the team included in the copy of the email.

The selected participants will then have up until 04/20/2018 to develop their Proof Of Concept (POC or prototype) in view of making their idea a reality.

On  April 25th and 26th 2018, the participants will present their project to a prestigious jury to try and  earn up to 7 000 €.

Each team will be coached by a mentor during the entire process of the competition.  At the end of the challenge, all the projects will be published in an open source.
