Do you have private access to the Good Judgement data? I've been thinking before about how it would be good to get superforecasters to answer such questions but didn't know of a way to access the results of previous questions.

(Though there is the question of how much superforecasters' previous track record on short-term questions translates to success on longer-term questions.)

GJ results (as opposed Good Judgment Open) aren't public, but Open Phil has an account with them. This is from a batch of nuclear war probability questions I suggested that Open Phil commission to help assess nuclear risk interventions.

This is really cool, Carl. Thanks for sharing. Do superforecasters ever make judgments about other x-risks?

Not by default, but I hope to get more useful forecasts that are EA action-relevant in the future performed and published.
