A proper scoring rules is a special kind of loss function that can be used to motivate You to quantify Your uncertainty honestly, as well as to measure the quality of Your past probability forecasts in the light of actual outcomes. I will discuss characterisations, properties and specialisations of proper scoring rules, and describe some of their uses, including robust estimation and Bayesian model selection. Other methods of assessing probability forecasts will also be described.
