HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, RMDS and WorldData.AI joined forces to launch their 2021 Data Science Competition: Impact of News Sentiments on the Stock Market.
News Sentiments have a significant impact on stock prices and consumer behavior. This three-week challenge will require data scientists to detect the impact of news sentiments on the daily stock performance of companies.
RMDS is a leader in community-centered data science ecosystem services. It successfully organized a 2019 data science competition in partnership with a NASA JPL research group to predict hurricanes, and it created a 2020 data science competition in partnership with the City of Los Angeles for scoring COVID19 risk.
WorldData.AI is the preeminent AI platform that provides News Sentiments and Entity Relationship Maps generated from over 60 million news articles on the web, and over 3.3 billion curated time series datasets for predictive intelligence.

In addition, contestants will have access to WorldData.AI’s 3.3 billion datasets, which includes 100 years of weather, macroeconomic trends, demographics, employment trends, and financial markets.
Contestants will receive support from RMDS’s large pool of experts and data science professionals, training resources related to NLP and data science, plus a special forum at GRMDS.org for contestants to get questions answered and interact with other participants.
The competition is expected to start accepting contestant registration on Tuesday January 26, with the challenge officially starting on March 1, 2021. The competition will end on March 21, which is when all contestants need to submit their solutions. An award ceremony is planned for March 28.
