This is an application to predict soccer results. More specifically, you can use the positronic brain to get a probability distribution for three classes of possible soccer results (home team wins, draw, away team wins). As a basis for this prediction, historic results along with the market values of transfermarkt.de are used. This project also provides a crawler to store data locally in a CouchDb.
Positronic brain was originally conceived as a way to apply learnings from this 12 week machine learning course
In the current state, the following data is gathered:
- Market values at the time of the game
- Current position in the league before each game
