The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced a competition, called “Project Streetlamp,” which challenges participants to use artificial intelligence or other tools to identify unregistered foreign entities potentially engaging in illegal activity subject to the CFTC’s jurisdiction and automatically add such entities to the CFTC’s Registration Deficient (RED) List. The competition is ongoing and is being administered by LabCFTC. Submissions are due no later than September 4, 2020.
