The National Intelligence Council’s Global Trends 2030 was released earlier this year (you can find it here). In that context, it is worth mentioning an important point that Wikistrat‘s Thomas P.M. Barnett made earlier about previous NIC’s forecasts in his 2005 book, The Pentagon’s New Map. Barnett’s key point in the book for our purposes is that the US Intelligence Community believes that it must only do analysis, and never engage in “advocacy” of any particular policy. This epistemologically naive point of departure poses a number of problems.
Last week, I again attended VALUEx. If you’re a Value Investor, this is no more interesting use of your time – it is an extraordinary gathering of intelligent, talented and fun people.
Like me, many people at VALUEx avoid investing in technology firms. On the other hand, many participants know that it’s important to follow the evolution of what I call the “3 GRAIN” technologies (3D printing, Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Information Technology, and Nanotechnology). Each of the 3 GRAIN general purpose technologies will have an increasing impact on the creation of value in the years ahead. Moreover, how they will combine to produce social changes is something that Philippe and I think about a lot.
If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably the sort of person that the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is looking for: IARPA is now looking for new participants for its online research study, Forecasting World Events.
The Forecasting World Events study involves making predictions about current issues that you select from various categories, like international relations, global politics, economics, business, and other areas. If you’d like to try to participate, click HERE.
Once you sign up at the website, they will send you a background questionnaire. After you complete the questionnaire, they will send you an e-mail to let you know if you have been selected. The initial questionnaire only takes about 20 minutes, and the prediction study itself is really interesting and quite quick to do every few weeks.
PS To understand the methodological background of the study, we recommend Tetlock’s Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know.
