Ensemble Classifiers And The Wisdom Of The Crowds

Here is the start of my long-term, self-funded project looking at the relationship between ensemble classifier research in computer science and in the social sciences.

So far, I found some serious bugs in the introductory material of the widely-praised best-seller: The Wisdom of Crowds, by James Surowiecki, published 2005 by Doubleday; Anchor.

I documented the probable bugs in this web page: Cattle Weight.

The open-source Wisdom of Crowds text that contains the bugs is available as an Amazon preview.
