ZPER, a P2P financial alliance platform based on blockchain technology, has opened a new fourth round of ‘Data Science Competition 2018 (hereafter, DSC 2018)’ for advancing P2P loan-scoring models in innovative analysis and technology at the globe scale.
The DSC 2018 aims to create a newly practical, and innovative, P2P loan-scoring solutions by more precisely evaluating and predicting the P2P loans’ stability and delinquency rate, using diverse non-financial database that the ZPER alliance and other business platforms have collected and serviced for many years. Participants can selectively join this competition as it has opened with four different topics from diverse business categories, including small business, medial and real estate industries.
Starting on 13 August (the first opening of the DSC 2018), over seven hundred of data scientists have applied across the globe, and two hundred of them have competed with their intellectual prowess and analytical abilities out on each stage of competition. Currently, the DSC is running its third round of competition with the topic of “Predict the Final Bid of Apartments!” and the participants are suggesting various P2P loan-scoring solutions worldwide.
Last Friday, ZPER publicly announced that a new competition, the fourth round of the DSC 2018, will be opening on 12 November (Korean Time, UTC/GMT +09:00), following another topic of “Predict the Real Transaction Price of Apartments.” This round is already triggering much public attentions in South Korea, even ahead of its opening, as it is to be co-hosted with ZIGBANG, which is the S. Korea’s largest and most popular online real estate marketplace platform.
During the period of the new round, participants will create a new screening review and analysis models, which could more precisely predict apartments’ transaction prices on various non-finance data, such as complex and sales information on apartments, randomly given by ZIGBANG. The winners’ analysis models will be re-optimized for a broader range of financial opportunities to the public and the people who are excluded from traditional financial institutions, e.g. banks, due to low credit scores and DTI regulations.
The fourth round will be held until the last day of January 2019 and the final winners will receive a total of $8,000(USD) in prize and 80,000 of ZPER tokens (ZPR), P2P cryptocurrency issued by ZPER.
