The 2018 FEIII challenge task is to enhance a given "ego" network dataset.

Each ego network starts with a seed financial entity. We provide properties for entities as well as information about relationships to other entities. We also include information on potential partners, suppliers and competitors. Some parts of the network and properties are not validated.

A simple enhancement could be to perform entity resolution and link financial entities across two or more resources. This task could also include entity-pair alignment, where both a pair of parent entities, and a pair of child entities, are linked across resources. One could also confirm a known relationship or further validate a predicted relationship, i.e., increase confidence in the property or relationship. A more difficult challenge, and hence a more valuable enhancement, would be to predict an unknown relationship. Of particular interest is identifying competitors.
