existing system VS

culture as a function propagated by the masses

generate predictive data

increase public awareness for the arts

increase responsibility of grant makers

sub domain examples
Sub-domain examples
  • Cinema
  • Museum exhibition
  • City Art Project/Installation
film festival
film festival
  • Predicting the top box office and the cumulative gross over some period
  • Categorized profile of each person
    • in the dimensions such as genre preference, age, sex, etc.
  • Type of each movie
    • in the dimensions such as genre, nationality, big stars shown, etc.
  • For classifying,
    • survey
      • preferences on different genres
      • identifying genre for each movie
      • predictions on the numbers for already known results of films that had similar success
    • data collection
      • the movies they watched in the festival
  • Observing how people’s different profiles influence predictions on different types of movies
    • adjusting the sensitivity and bias of each person’s prediction for more accurate prediction result
  • Depending on the true result, participants get the rewards

prediction system

(sensitivity and bias

parameters, etc)


each person’s

prediction & betting

prediction result

parameter tuning



deviation from the true result

profile classification

(e.g. survey, data collection)

each person’s


the type of each



  • - The parameters in the prediction system can be learned by
  • adjusting the difference between the prediction result and the true result.
  • Deciding the number of dimensions describing the personal profile
  • and the item type (Model Selection by Occam’s razor)

Exhibitions in Museums
  • Predicting the number of cumulative visitors within a month
  • Participants’ preferences
    • survey
    • data collection through records and sensors.
  • Correction of error by observing how participants’ preferences influence predictions on different types of exhibitions
  • Rewards to participants based on the true result.
art projects
Art Projects
  • Predicting the budget allocation and success.
  • Limiting the tickets playing prediction for each project.
  • Make a prediction of success per ticket.
  • Rewards to participants based on the true result.






Different Projects


Multi-stage betting system

Predict success of project

Periodically publish results

Adjust buy-in to reflect availability of information

Project installation closes house at a given cell

Success evaluated by independent agency





In multiple domains:

property value

attendance (technological implications)

Different Projects


cant go dynamic





Share price determined


Transaction wipes cards


Different Projects


Punishment for predicting early is too great

An individual’s prediction matrix is too complex to convey in an ask-bid

Wiping inordinately punishes for buying early

Goal: Predict impact of funding
    • Many possible projects
    • Many possible levels of funding
  • Problem: Not all projects get funded -- no feedback on predictions for unfunded projects
Reward based on some projects only:
    • Collect predictions (of attendance, approval) for all projects
    • Assign reward based on available data only (only projects that are ultimately funded)
  • Alternative: reward based on outcomes measurable irrespective of funding choice (neighborhood income, property value)
    • Are people already good at predicting local economic trends likely to be better at predicting impact of arts projects on those trends?
possible strategy
Possible strategy
  • I want project B to get funded, pick accurate estimate of project B’s benefit, slightly lower estimate for all others.
  • For model, remove funding level variable:
    • “If given reasonable funding, how much relative benefit from each?”
