In practice, it can be translated as "usually but not always," "maybe," "perhaps," or "possibly." It is deliberately vague, because typical accuracies are neither guaranteed nor traceable to a national calibration standard or accredited calibration-laboratory standard.
These software packages have yielded imputation accuracies ranging from 81% to 97% from low to moderate densities (Druet et al., 2010; Johnston et al., 2011; Ma et al., 2013; Weng et al., 2013), and from 84% to 99% from low to high densities in dairy cattle populations (Ma et al., 2013; Larmer et al., 2014; Pryce et al., 2014; He et al., 2015).
Table 1 shows the classification accuracies for ML NN and SVM with the corresponding training set sizes.
Without further assumptions about the distribution of tool error, it is difficult to compare accuracies when both the tolerance and certainty differ: for example whether [+ or -]15% NWT 95% of the time is more or less accurate than +10% NWT 80% of the time.
Melt-pressure/temperature transducers designed with a solid steel force rod have pressure ranges from 250 to 45,000 psi, accuracies of 0.5%, stem lengths from 3.5 to 18 in., and thermocouple capability.
The accuracies of these receivers range from centimeter to several meters, making it necessary to evaluate how accuracy and precision can affect individual applications.
Thus, usage of the mentioned methods of neutron beam polarization determination can give measurement accuracies of [10.sup.-3] and better.
