New York Times and Risk Management Magazine Coverage

A feature article about prediction markets was published by Steve Lohr of the New York Times today. It received prominent billing in the physical version of the paper as the lead story in the technology section. There was even an accompanying illustration! The article did a good job of conveying the current status of prediction markets in corporations and gave some compelling use cases.

In addition we recently wrote a feature story about prediction markets and their value in mitigating risk in corporations that was published in Risk Management magazine. If you're already familiar with prediction markets you can skim the first few paragraphs which are largely introductory and go to the subsequent sections where we discuss how Inkling could be used to understand the probability of operational risk factors.
