Magnarater offers rating services for any organisation to help manage the performance rating of members; member ratings are frequently used by sporting organisations (including chess & go) to assess the relative playing strength of members.
MagnaRater services are available
either as an installable computation package (as used by the Ulster Chess Union)
or as a rating service through a managed website
The technology used by MagnaRater was initially developed and tested during a Kaggle competition devised to determine the most effective rating technique for rating players. Magnarater squeezed-in to the final top-10 ranked entries.
Since then it has included techniques used by the winners of the Kaggle competition plus additional historical systems and some team-based techniques. This breadth allows the toolset to offer a variety of rating systems which can be applied to any dataset and adjusted to meet the specific requirements of the rating organisation.
