Is the Metaculus prediction better than all users?


The Metaculus prediction uses a sophisticated model to calibrate and weight each user, ideally resulting in a prediction that's better than the best of the community.

Over the next 50 questions to resolve, will it achieve that goal?

This question will resolve positive if the Brier score of the Metaculus prediction is lower than the Brier score of each individual user for the next 50 (binary) questions to resolve. This will include every user who has a valid prediction on at least 25 of those questions. For each user included the comparison will be between the Metaculus prediction Brier score over the subset of questions that user has predicted and the user's Brier score for those same questions.
