New ways to share, trade and aggregate information using Internet-based markets are exploding. These powerful network knowledge markets help companies, schools, governments and individuals to acquire and master ever-growing bodies of knowledge. These capabilities achieve mastery of collective wisdom with stunning speed and accuracy.
These innovative prediction and information market-based mechanisms resolve questions of science, technology, management, strategy, planning and policy far better than the experts or management.
Through a ceaseless flurry of self-correcting exchanges and markets, covering everything from politics and business plans to sports and new product features, these potent markets generate new ideas and amass and refine knowledge and collective wisdom with breathtaking speed and uncanny accuracy.
Knowledge and prediction markets are becoming commonplace in the smartest firms. Top firms using prediction markets are Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, Abbott Laboratories, HP and Siemens.
