Come join us to estimate ‚How many giant pandas 🐼 are in zoos around the world‘ and other interesting questions designed to hone your estimation skills.
Our team Placed 12th (out of more than a 100) before, so the bar is set high! 💪
Fermi’s estimates can be very imprecise (we’re not trying to say they’re not), but if we have minimal information and our uncertainty is large, it’s better than nothing. Even a quick, simple, and rough estimate that can hit at least an order of magnitude can help reduce uncertainty and ignorance and can be worked with in decision-making.
Quantified Intuitions organizes a fun quiz competition between EA groups globally by answering Fermi estimation questions on your phones. Test your skills on a range of questions and track your progress on a real-time global leaderboard. Form your team and let’s see who comes out on top!
