Current Projects

Proof of Concept – U.N. News & Forecasting

Seeing the Future BestWorld

BestWorld’s initial plans center around our news and forecasting projects. Participants will collaborate with seasoned news forecasters and our AI implementation. Together, they’ll work to learn how to report a breaking news story and forecast how that story may unfold over coming days, weeks, and sometimes even years.

Our first major experiment will enable participants to write brief news stories about current events before the United Nations. These reports will include daily happenings as well as forecasts about what comes next at the U.N. Our project will make it easy for you to discover the day-to-day activities based on treaties, committees, meetings, and more. Among the areas you might be forecasting are:

– Military activities such as peacekeeping missions or authorizing invasions
– Peace deals between warring nations
– Humanitarian crises.

You don’t need to be an expert to succeed at forecasting. Research has shown most people can, on average. see the future better than the experts. These individuals improve with practice and time. Also, our specially curated version of ChatGPT, along with our staff of experienced, successful forecasters, will be your research assistants. Because AIs make mistakes, we will include prizes for catching mistakes generated by our version of ChatGPT.

As your forecasts turn out to usually be true, you will lead others to trust your opinions. Granted, nobody can always predict the future perfectly, but our research suggests most of the time anyone can do so. You may discover you are better at predicting outcomes than many media stars–especially if you take advantage of help from our multilingual AI and the assistance of our professional forecasters.

This isn’t a distant-future vision. It’s happening right now. Our team is actively experimenting with these concepts on a small and partial scale at INFER. New participants are welcome to join us there–and even have a chance to win prize money.

So, if you’ve ever dreamed of influencing millions of people, of making a big contribution to the world’s peace and prosperity, how about becoming a founding BestWorld citizen reporter/forecaster? Get started by registering today.
