CITATION TruthSift Crushes Crowd Think And Demonstrates Its a Much Bigger Problem than You Realized Crowd think is an omnipresent problem. You want a rational decision, not a popular one. TruthSift lays out a rational plan and the proofs for and challenges against. Crowd think occurs because crowds jump to conclusions based on arguments with appealing images and story-lines, even when there are holes in the reasoning. The first appealing idea gains a following and crowds out others. Dissenters are dissuaded from raising their objections, even when they are valid, by unpopularity, and even when they raise them, they can't make themselves heard above the flow. TruthSift allows the dissenters with rational arguments to attach them exactly where they apply, and shows the consequences for the overall conclusion. Check out the results of some of the diagrams on TruthSift so far. We expect to reveal a staggering level of crowd think afflicting society. Big organizations have various additional systemic problems. Only good news tends to flow upwards, causing severe management problems.

STATEMENT And you will know who made which contribution. Or not, if you prefer to allow anonymous contributions. All your members can have a distinct log-in associated with their name, but you can support an anonymous login as well so that members can make points they may not be willing to in meetings. The rationality or not of the point will be transparent on the diagram. You can compensate members who make good points under their own name. 1.0 Eric Details 2016-09-28 22:27:34.0
STATEMENT Sophisticated probabilistic modelling included TruthSift supports the rapid construction (and criticism and/or improvement) of sophisticated probabilistic models. When Probability Mode is turned on for a diagram in the Settings panel (or if it has previously been turned on and saved) TruthSift estimates the probability of each statement, marginalizing over all probability parameters in the statements of the diagram, and over probabilities in Test statements. Test statements may be of the form: a reported observation would have likelihood LET of happening if the target statement were true, and likelihood LEF of happening if the target statement were false. This supports the rapid construction of 1.0 Eric Details 2016-09-28 22:27:34.0
