Feedzai Challenge:

Feedzai built a simple API that connects to a powerful machine learning anti-fraud platform. Leverage Feedzai’s API and other data services of your liking to build the best fraud detection experience. Help merchants evaluate the risk of any business transaction in a specific and/or niche use case. Ensure seamless user interaction by integrating with a payment provider, an eCommerce shopping cart’s back-office interface or any other service where this functionality might be useful.

Some ideas of what to build:

  • Create a browser extension for an eCommerce or shopping platform (like eBay), that puts Feedzai’s risk analysis information at the user’s fingertips.
  • Enrich the transactions with data from external services (e.g. Yelp reviews, email reputation, social media, feeds, geo-location) and provide this information to Feedzai’s API to get the most out of the machine learning engine.
  • Create a seamless mashup with one payment provider (e.g. Stripe, Braintree), connecting it to Feedzai’s API.
  • Deeply integrate Feedzai’s API with one or several shopping carts (e.g. Shopify, Bigcommerce, Magento, Prestashop, Hybris, etc); in addition to automatically submitting transactions for fraud analysis, embed the analysis results directly into the user interface.
  • Make it even easier for the merchant to decide whether the order should be shipped by adding information from other data sources, such as FullContact.
  • Moonshot idea: repurpose Feedzai’s API to a completely different domain by mapping your non-ecommerce data to ecommerce transactions. See how far you can go by training Feedzai’s machine learning algorithms with your own data patterns.

Prize: Each team member will receive:

  • Your picture and product featured in hi-def on our stunning giant 20 foot video wall in the Feedzai Booth, you’ll be famous in Vegas
  • 1x Onewheel self-balancing electric skateboard. One lucky person on your team gets to ride off into the sunset on a self-balancing board
