Kickstarter Prediction Tool

Schweizer Wissenschaftler haben ein Tool namens Sidekick zur Vorhersage über den Erfolg von Kickstarter Kampagnen gebaut, das ist alleine schonmal recht interessant. Das Tool lässt sich aber auch prima missbrauchen, um Kickstarter-Projekte zu finden in einer schnörkellosen, sortierbaren und durchsuchbaren Liste ohne Schnickschnack, mit der man arbeiten kann.

By mining data on more than 16,000 Kickstarter campaigns and more than 1.3 million users, they created a prediction model based on the project's popularity on Twitter, the rate of cash it's getting, how many first-time backers it has, and the previous projects supporters have backed. […] the Swiss project monitors projects in real time. They've even built a tool, called Sidekick, that monitors projects and displays their chances of success.
