Hunch vs Bayesian Truth Serum = Personal vs Cumulative smart
- Newest First
- Oldest First
Hunch seems to measure personalized preferences as opposed to BTS's subjective expertise and "truthity". Hunch claims to get smarter over time, but "smarter" in the sense that it understands YOU better. However BTS may actually get smarter over time in the sense that it may be able to filter ideas and experts in a CUMULATIVE fashion, which would be particularly useful considering how broken a lot of our systems are.
Are there any plans to create a "competitive" idea forum utilizing BTS? Considering the MIT, Drazen, BTS connection I'm sure you guys have come across this paper - www.princeton.edu/~decconf/FinalPapers/WeissPaper.pdf

Hi there, that's my paper! I don't think it's up there anymore.
You can find more work in my master's thesis, but honestly Drazen's papers are probably the best source of intuition regarding BTS.
If you want to know more about this, feel free to contact me!
