The Concept of CrowdWisdom360

Crowdwisdom360 was established to harness the inherent capabilities of citizens who donot otherwise get opportunities to showcase their skills. We provide a platform for citizens to demonstrate their wisdom. In this specific case their ability to predict the Future. We then reward citizens on the basis of their accuracy. The platform is different from other gaming platforms in the sense that the rewards are based on accuracy of results that can be directly measured and therefore have a direct and measurable impact on the society around them. 50000 Indians from across the country have registered to become predictors and be rewarded for the same. Some of our winners are listed here CrowdWisdom360 is built around the concept of wisdom of the crowd – The wisdom of the crowd is the collective opinion of a group of individuals rather than that of single expert. A large group’s aggregated answers to questions involving quantity estimation, general world knowledge, and spatial reasoning has generally been found to be as good as, but often superior to, the answer given by any of the individuals within the group In the elections held in 2018, CrowdWisdom360 was the 3rd most accurate firm after having spent almost nothing in comparison with exit polling firms.
