INFER is pleased to announce that the Pro Forecaster Program will continue into the 2023 season. Up to 100 Pro Forecasters (“Pros”) are being selected for the program, which includes monthly payment for dedicated forecasting and exclusive training and events.
Admission into the program is determined by forecasters’ contributions throughout 2022, including efforts related to question research, regular forecasting/updating, thoughtful commentary, and overall performance compared to the crowd. The new cohort will be comprised of:
- 2022 Pros invited to return,
- Forecasters who qualify for the Pro Starter Award by the end of this season, and
- Accepted applicants from the Pro Open Call.
While most Pros are selected based on their track record on INFER, you may be eligible to apply for the Open Call if you can demonstrate top performance on a similar forecasting site, or you have experience in synthetic biology, AI, or other specialty areas.
Be on the lookout for invitations distributed in mid-December to returning 2022 Pros and in mid-January to new qualifiers! If you are not selected to be a Pro during this invitation round, there may be an opportunity to join later in 2023 as spots become available.
