2.7.1 Back to the watermelons

Course subject(s) Module 2. Calibration and Information score

You might consider that it is quite intuitive to evaluate which expert is more informative based on the Dutch eating habits examples.

Well, let’s see!

Suppose other two experts, Expert C and Expert D provide their assessments.

Expert 5% 50% 95%
Expert C 80 90 99
Expert D 75 95 99

Note how different the information scores are of the two experts when different intrinsic ranges are considered!

It’s good to remember that the larger the intrinsic range, the more informative expert’s assessments can be.
