Judging Guidelines/FAQs

Core to BuiltWorlds Research advantage is the power of our platform to "crowdsource" information. about trends, technologies, and players in the industry. As we grow, we are able to aggregate more data through polls, surveys, and other crowd leveraging techniques, and instead of sharing what we learn with advertisers, we share it with our members via our research.
Another great way to benefit from the growing power of the BuiltWorlds Platform is to serve as a judge.  When you serve as a judge, you get see primary data from our survey efforts, provide your objective third party evaluations of the applications submitted, and then - especially if you are a standard member of BuiltWorlds - you can see the results of the process as filtered through the evaluations of the group of judges. It is a great way to get more deeply informed about a topic of particular interest to you and also support BuiltWorlds broader peer-supported research efforts.

Do I have to be a member or sponsor to be a judge?

While some levels of membership may give people a first call on judging opportunities, we are looking for a broad sampling of the most expert people in on the topic being surveyed. So, judging opportunities are open to all.

What about conflicts?

We try hard to screen for conflicts and also to ensure that judges are knowledgeable consumers or otherwise objective experts in the fields in question. The BuiltWorlds team will make its best efforts to disqualify applications from people who are also solutions providers of the technology in question or otherwise have apparent conflicts of interest in rendering opinions.

How scientific is the process?

Like everything else we do at BuiltWorlds, we start slow and build from there. So, right now, the feedback is primarily subjective and qualitative. judges are asked to rank solutions based on how likely they think they are to impact a certain metric or how likely they are to be commercially successful in their expert opinion. Or whether how likely they are to use or recommend a solution.

What is required of me as a judge?

Right now, judging is conducted electronically. Judges typically receive free passes to the conference or event associated with their judging as consideration for their efforts. However, they are not required to attend events to participate.
