New ways to share, trade and aggregate information using Internet-based prediction markets are exploding. These powerful networked 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 information and prediction market based mechanisms resolve questions of science, technology, management, strategy, planning and policy far better and faster than experts, management, polling or surveys.
Through a ceaseless flurry of self-correcting exchanges and markets, covering everything from politics and business plans to financials and new product features, these potent information 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 Arcelor, Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, Abbott Laboratories, HP and Siemens.

Also sponsoring are NewsFutures http://us.newsfutures.com/, Numeria http://www.numeria.com/, Redmonitor Financial Information GmbH http://www.redmonitor.com/ and InTrade http://www.intrade.com/.
