Unbound launches app to predict funding likelihood

Unbound has launched a “groundbreaking” app to predict crowdfunding revenue as well as the length of time required to fund a project.

The app uses data from more than 200,000 pledge transactions on its platform, as well as authors’ online engagement, to predict revenues.

Developed by Unbound head of data science and astrophysics Dr Noelia Jiménez Martínez, the app is now being used by its commissioning team, with 80% accuracy.
