JOIN US for this special session where we'll continue our exploration of predictive tools with Metaculus (a prediction engine website & a community dedicated to generating accurate predictions about future real-world events) & guest speaker, Anthony Aguirre (physicist, author, co-Founder of Metaculus, Future of Life Institute, & Foundational Questions Institute), who will join us via live video to demo & discuss Metaculus & how we can learn to ask more probabilistic & strategic questions about the future that will lead to substantive answers & valuable data.

Following his presentation, we'll have an interactive Q&A (moderated by Anne T. Griffin, Lead Product Manager, OpenLaw) where attendees will get to ask Dr. Aguirre questions & offer feedback on Metaculus. We'll discuss the differences between prediction markets & prediction platforms (or forums), how data from prediction platforms can be used to tell better stories, how to use these platforms for long-term planning, how prediction platforms can benefit employees, how using these platforms might help us to better understand & work with predictive AI, & more.

The Blockchain Effect: Decentralized Prediction Markets. Anne Griffin, who works for OpenLaw (legal blockchain platform), will discuss the growing trend & enthusiasm around decentralized prediction markets. What are decentralized prediction markets & are they going to be as disruptive as analysts & experts believe they will be?
