How we feed ourselves is changing dramatically as new technology enables possibilities that were once only sci-fi dreams. This tournament, hosted in partnership with the Good Food Institute, challenges the forecasting community to make accurate predictions that span a range of topics, from supply chain management to policy considerations. How will the science, supply chain, and economics of alternative protein change, and how will these changes affect our everyday diet?
The tournament will run from April 2021 until April 2023, and is comprised of two rounds, with three types of questions:
- Calibration Questions: these close before the end date of the tournament (Earth Day 2023), and are used to rank you in the tournament
- Long-term Questions: in order to probe far into the future, and build the Metaculus data set on predictions, we are including a number of far-reaching questions that may not resolve for many years
- Fortified Essays: these questions challenge you to explain your predictions
The first round is currently open, and closes at the end of August. You can start anytime, just dive into the forecasting questions listed below! Details regarding Round 2 will be announced over the summer.
