Predicting the Future of Work:
A Good Judgment Open Forecasting Challenge

During the Wharton Future of Work Conference, we heard from experts on the future of work. What do YOU envision for the future of work?

With that in mind, we partnered with the Good Judgment Project to run a forecasting tournament with attendees. The Future of Work Challenge on Good Judgment Open will continue to run for 12 months for conference participants alongside the 100K registered forecasters on the site.

We look forward to seeing your forecasts on the future of work!
