AAAS, George Mason Seek Diverse Scientists to Test Crowdsourcing Accuracy

The AAAS Center for Science, Technology, and Security Policy is helping George Mason University recruit scientists with a diverse set of expertise to assist in a science and technology forecasting project called SciCast. The purpose of this project, which is funded by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), is to determine whether crowdsourcing can be used to accurately predict the future of science and technology questions. These questions vary by discipline and focus area, and range from the more applied science and engineering advancements to the highly technical, basic science achievements. SciCast invites you to explore the site and answer questions to get a better feel for the project. Approximately 7,000 people have already signed up and are answering questions. For more information, visit the SciCast homepage.
