Re: Accuracy

"It's not very useful to claim "73 per cent accurate". What they should give is a percentage of false positives and false negatives."

False positives are 100% minus the hit rate (that is 23%). From the x-axis of Figure 2 in the manuscript it is visible that false negative is also close to 25%. I know this from the description on page 11 (search for "false positive").
