Colabria®, the leading worldwide action/research network of the knowledge economy, announces NewsFutures, InTrade and HedgeStreet will join Google, Yahoo!, CommerceNet and others for the Prediction Markets Summit, Feb. 3, 2006, in New York, N.Y.

Knowledge and prediction markets are becoming routine in the smartest firms. Top firms using prediction markets are Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, Abbott Laboratories, HP, Intel, IBM and Siemens. At the World Economic Forum in Davos knowledge markets will be applied. Prediction markets have been used for decades to forecast the outcome of popular elections with uncanny accuracy.
“Internal markets represent a powerful way to organize certain aspects of business decision-making. They engage the potential creativity, intelligence, and knowledge of many more people," explains Thomas W. Malone, Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and founder of the MIT Center for Coordination Science. "They have the potential to reach decisions much faster and adapt more rapidly to changing situations."
Summit sessions are practical and conversational. The group conversations are not academic, theoretical, lectures, or sales hype. They advance understanding and application of prediction markets to your business.
The event conversations are for executives, directors and practitioners having immediate, practical needs for improved performance, greater effectiveness, faster innovation, customer delight and satisfaction.
