Recent studies in geopolitical forecasting have identified psychological variables that predict forecasting accuracy. We studied the effect of providing human forecasters with automated information search and task management support tools. Our research aimed to determine whether use of the support tools could explain additional variance in forecasting performance above and beyond psychological variables. We found that the provided tools encouraged participants to do more work (i.e., information search, communication, reflection, etc.), which in turn resulted in improved forecasting performance. © 2020 CEUR-WS.
