RapidMiner is giving away $10,000 to the teams and individuals who use its platform to predict the champs of this year’s World Cup.
Come June, thousands of futbol-loving Bostonians will turn on the tube and tune into the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. If they’re the risk-taking type, they might even place bets on their favorite teams – if only to lick their wounds after losing Warren Buffett’s $1 billion March Madness perfect bracket challenge.
Fortunately, those looking for a little return on the tourney are in luck. Boston’s predictive analytics champ RapidMiner is offering up its platform to empower data-driven sports fans a way to hack the winners. To make the pot even sweeter, there’s a cool $10,000 up for grabs, too.
