  • Peer-predictioni¾?[19] is a meta-mechanism which, given any proper scoring rule, produces a mechanism to elicit prie information from self-interested agents. Formally, truth-telling is a strict Nash equilibrium of the mechanism. Unfortunately, there may be other equilibria as well including uninformative equilibria where all players simply report the same fixed signal, regardless of their true signal and, typically, the truth-telling equilibrium does not have the highest expected payoff.
