Health Security Forecasters Needed for a Collective Intelligence Project

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security is launching the second round of its public health crowd-sourcing effort, which is focused on making predictions about future outbreaks and other health security-related events.

Volunteer predictors are needed to thoughtfully answer a set of forecasting questions on a weekly basis through December 2019 via the Collective Intelligence for Disease Prediction platform. The goal is to develop a prediction tool that provides useful, real-time predictive information to health security leaders responsible for preparing for, preventing, and responding to emerging infectious diseases and epidemics.

Participation is open to public health experts, doctors, epidemiologists, modelers, risk experts, vector control officials, individuals with on-the-ground understanding of conditions surrounding disease outbreaks, and others who are interested in outbreaks.
