“Predictions are hard, especially about the future”, so said Yogi Berra, the famous baseball player for the NY Yankees. Why are we so bad at predictions? We hear, give and depend on predictions on an almost daily basis. In a world full of uncertainty, predictions of the future are inevitable. However, if we know that people are susceptible to prejudice, partiality and overconfidence, can we trust them to be just as good with predictions? We at Oraclum think they can. And it's not just that, we also believe that we can use group partiality to improve their predictions. How? Find out at the festival!
