Course Description Prediction markets are marketplaces for trading contracts that yield payoff that is determined by the future outcome of an event, e.g. political elections or sports games. Many suggest such markets could produce more accurate forecasts than conventional forecasting methods. This course will introduce the basic concepts in prediction markets as well as their background and recent development. The focus of this course is to understand the information elicitation and aggregation mechanism in prediction markets, to empirically evaluate the performance of different forecasts, and to develop effective statistical methods using data that is available in prediction markets. Other similar markets, like sports betting markets, will also be discussed in this course. Background in statistics and experience in programming are required.
