Hey heres is quick question for you guys,
I always wonder whats the need for inventing new
techniques when most of the bayesian filters are
giving accuracy >99.7%?
Is that in time these bayesian techniques or method
will become less effective?
The reason is that humans are 99.84% accurate, so you want to be
MUCH more accurate than that, so you never have to read
the spam folder.
If you can make it 99.999% accurate, then you can save a lot
of time and storage.
