The BestWorld Project Purpose & Goals

It’s well known that journalism and social media are facing a fact drought, making it increasingly difficult to know what information you can trust. That’s why BestWorld is working to reimagine both traditional and social media-based news.

You can become a part of this groundbreaking project as one of the first BestWorld citizen journalists reporting what’s now and, more importantly, what comes next.

No matter where or when big news breaks, you’ll be armed with a bleeding-edge artificial intelligence (AI) platform that will find people on the scene. BestWorld’s system provides you with their accounts and even translates them for you if you don’t speak the local language. But that’s not all you’ll do.

You’ll collaborate with our community of seasoned news forecasters and our AI forecasting system to analyze and predict how your breaking news story might unfold over the coming days, weeks, even years. This isn’t something far off in a distant future. That future is now.

The BestWorld team is already experimenting with this concept on a small and partial scale at INFER. Join us there to get a glimpse of what’s next to come–and a chance to win prize money.

We also are about to launch a test of this system. Details here.


BestWorld’s Mission

The internet has been a powerful tool for the dissemination and democratization of knowledge. But opening the door to the free spread of vital information opens the door to misinformation. BestWorld empowers people to find, process, and share trustworthy, fact-based information. As part of this, we give you access to advanced AI, our team of highly accurate forecasters, and more.

Armed with these tools, you’ll become a bonafide citizen journalist, able to not only report on world events but also predict what comes next–often with great accuracy. The result: a fact-based source of news and information for what pessimists are calling the post-fact era. 

We invite you to learn about BestWorld, our team, and why we believe in what we’re doing.


BestWorld Combines High  Quality Human Forecasters and AI
to Revolutionize the Post-Digital Age

BestWorld Combines some of the world’s top forecasters, AI, and, if you choose, you! to revolutionize the post-digital age.

You’ve probably met people who usually can tell the future with surprising accuracy. Perhaps you are one of these – or soon will be. Successful forecasters consider a situation, examine the factors that led up to it…often sleep on it…and then say how they think the situation will turn out. We aren’t always successful. Sometimes even the most famed forecasters miss. However, usually, we’re pretty close. And many times, we’re right on the money. Our team combines the foresight of some of the best forecasters in the world, with the world’s most accurate AI technology. Our team also includes researchers positioned at the intersection of computer science, sociology, and the media gives us the edge to make it all happen..

Our Mission

To offer individuals the best tools to discover and learn with an understanding of how to validate knowledge while fostering humility of perception and fidelity of information

Our Vision

To empower individuals to better assess the quality of information sources and thus enable better decision-making

Our Core Values

Sympathetic responsiveness

If you think trustworthy information is important, no matter the source, we encourage you to take a deep dive into everything BestWorld seeks to accomplish. Our goal is aspirational but simple: to transform how you interact with the internet, whether it’s news, social media, or science.
