MITRE, Inkling, the MIT Lean Advancement Initiative, and Iowa State University are happy to announce a seminar on how prediction markets can be used by the Federal Government. Based on case studies in both the Government and private industry, speakers will discuss how prediction markets are being used, the value they're providing, and practical advice about how to get started with your own prediction market initiative.
Sessions will be a mix of presentations and Q&A, and we're purposely limiting the size of the event to encourage open discussions, networking, and debate.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Dress is casual.
