Got any that contrast with "raising awareness" or "outreach"?

"Accuracy-boosting" or "raising accuracy"?

Source?

Source. But the non-cached page says "The details of this job cannot be viewed at this time," so maybe the job opening is no longer available.

FWIW, I'm a bit familiar with Dafoe's thinking on the issues, and I think it would be a good use of time for the right person to work with him.

We're in the process of getting it onto Audible and plan to get it onto iTunes as well to get it in front of the widest audience as possible.

Hurray!

Any chance you'll eventually get this up on Audible? I suspect that in the long run, it can find a wider audience there.

Another attempt to do something like this thread: Viva la Books.

I guess subjective logic is also trying to handle this kind of thing. From Jøsang's book draft:

Subjective logic is a type of probabilistic logic that allows probability values to be expressed with degrees of uncertainty. The idea of probabilistic logic is to combine the strengths of logic and probability calculus, meaning that it has binary logic’s capacity to express structured argument models, and it has the power of probabilities to express degrees of truth of those arguments. The idea of subjective logic is to extend probabilistic logic by also expressing uncertainty about the probability values themselves, meaning that it is possible to reason with argument models in presence of uncertain or incomplete evidence.

Though maybe this particular formal system has really undesirable properties, I don't know.
