Predicted Events will have their own status, and you will be able to search and retrieve them just as any other event. Predicted Events will always carry some risk that they might not happen, because some of them may not come from our providers. We have internal logic and mechanisms in place to mitigate this risk.
All Predicted Events will be either upgraded to Active Events (the standard events that you’re already getting through our web application and APIs), or downgraded to Deleted, depending on whether or not they get confirmed by the providers closer to the date of the event. The same ID will carry over from Predicted, to Active, or Deleted – so you don’t need to fetch new IDs periodically. The Predicted Events feature includes the release of existing events that don’t officially have start times yet. These are events we had, but didn’t previously show due to their unconfirmed status. Now, these events will be visible with the label Predicted Events. These events will lack precise start times (hours of the day), but they will include start dates (the date on which they’re predicted to be held).
Predicted Events also include entirely new events. These are based on analyzing recurring events, and inferring the next event in the set before it is officially announced by event organizers.
