Results Rounding

Postby sofos » Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:50 am

Are the preliminary results rounded on the 3rd digit?
E.g. If my preliminary score is 0,4552 will it be converted to 0,455 ?

Yes they are. Preliminary scores are rounded to 3rd digit in order to avoid misuse of the leaderboard for extensive parameter tuning, which usually leads to overfitting.
The final results will be much more precise :-)
