None of these rankings would exist, if I wasn't convinced the models are as accurate as we can reasonably expect.
I have previously spent a lot of time explaining 2 things that seem contradictory:
All rankings are “bad”-- strictly speaking, they will never be accurate or trustworthy.
My models are less bad than the next guy. I know this because I measure accuracy.
Most followers get confidence from knowing my methodology. Knowing how the underlying data is treated .
But my accuracy reports have given validation. Measuring the results doesn’t only give me feedback to improve— It’s also the only way I know it's not all a huge waste of time! And I hate wasting time.
