Error Detection in Mechanized Classification Systems
Hoyle, W. G.
Information Processing and Management, 12, 5, 333-7, 76
When documentary material is indexed by a mechanized classification system, and the results judged by trained professionals, the number of documents in disagreement, after suitable adjustment, defines the error rate of the system. In a test case disagreement was 22 percent and, of this 22 percent, the computer correctly identified two-thirds of the decisions as doubtful. (Author)
