Joining us as a qualified Supertrends expert is easy and quick, but since we know your time is precious, our editorial team can help to streamline that process further with a customized onboarding plan that is tailored to your needs and minimizes your effort and involvement.
Every Supertrends expert holds unique knowledge about the future. We select our experts based on metrics designed to identify not only established scientists, but also young innovators. Our expert evaluation metrics go beyond traditional indexes such as publications, education, or experience to include professionals from innovative startups and individuals with a high social impact.
Our expert team includes:
We ask all our experts to participate actively in our community by creating and predicting future events in areas of their expertise. This input will inform our Timeline, which offers an overview of trends and milestones across the whole spectrum of fields and industries, as well as the year in which they are expected to be realized.
Depending on their time and willingness, we may also contact our experts with requests to be interviewed for featured articles or to join advisory boards or popup think tanks.
Events on our timeline mark transformational benchmarks or milestones in a broad range of technology fields and industry sectors. They are created by expert users and contain the following general information:
To generate a new event on the timeline, experts can simply click on “Create Event” and fill in the template provided. If you have trouble using this function or need assistance, please contact the editors, who will be glad to help.
Predicting on an event means adding your input concerning the expected date by when the expected change will materialize. All users can help build a consensus on the timeline of events submitted by other experts by making their own predictions on the expected timeframe. Click on “Predict” to start this feature. Flip through the cards until you reach an event to which you want to add your prediction.
Click on “Predict now!” to add your own prediction, or best guess as to when the anticipated event will take place. You can support the expert’s assessment, or specify the year (earlier or later) when you believe it will become a reality. Once you have submitted your own prediction, you will be able to see an overview of all users’ predictions, as well as the consensus prediction based on aggregated input. You can always come back and renew/edit your prediction.
Our timeline is the collaborative result of our Supertrends experts, supported if necessary by our editorial team. Once you have signed up, we will be glad to conduct a short interview with you to find out which events you expect to see in your line of business, as well as other thoughts about the future that could be of interest to other users. If you agree to be quoted, our editors may include your views in short topical articles on our platform.
