[Spike] [bike shed] Name the Meta ORES service
Closed, ResolvedPublic



  • Emphasize that it's about human judgement.
  • Humans are an equal or senior partner to the machine learning.
  • Possibly we want to suggest the more general problem (allow review of everything) and not just a check on ORES
  • Extra points for playing on the data mining metaphor some more (e.g. "ores")


  • JaDE: Judgment and Dialogue Engine
  • SRES: Subjective Revision Evaluation Service
  • BiasBuster
  • Assay (the process for testing mineral content in an ore sample)

Halfak raised the priority of this task from Low to Needs Triage.
Halfak moved this task from Unsorted to Maintenance/cleanup on the Machine-Learning-Team board.

I wonder if there is a particularly human type of rock ("ore") that you might mine out of the ground.

Or, we could work in human things that happen to miners: SORES for
subjective... objective RES...

I just added BiasBuster (@Tnegrin) and Assay (@bd808) to the list of ideas.

Thinking about measuring the purity of a chemical. There are lots of types of spectrometry, e.g. mass spectrometry is a process that allows one to examine the purity of a sample (and identify all the other crap in it). We're doing human spectrometry -- where we use humans to examine the purity of an ORES. :)

This is implicitly quantiative, yet the articles make it clear that a spectrometer can be used both quantiatively and qualitatively.
