For creators, Usefulness serves the purpose of indicating a source’s relative value to users in making an accurate prediction over time. Usefulness can be more technically described as content’s value in terms of the extent to which it was interacted with by both correctly-predicting and incorrectly-predicting users in the process of making their predictions. Mathematically, Usefulness also makes use of a k-value and constant that serve the same purpose as they do for Foresight.
While Hypothesis intends to be transparent about as much of its technology as possible, the processes describing Usefulness are currently under development and cannot be made public. Relevant stakeholders may contact [email protected] for more information regarding Hypothesis algorithms.
