Williams Index Agreement

To make deals in September, Williams turned to what he calls the Machu Picchu trade, because he discovered this signal when he and his wife went to the old Inca ruins in 2014. Williams, who focuses heavily on seasonal models that run consistently over time, noted that it is generally a good idea to sell stocks – usually with indices – on the seventh day of trading before the end of September. (This year is September 22.) The sale that day has profits in short-term trades 100% of the time over the last 22 years net. The similarities defined in section 2.1 allow us to study the Statistics of the Williams Index for each algorithm, for each label, on all subjects. The main assumption behind the principle of common agreement is the idea that each binder makes decisions independently of the others. In fact, it is more complex, because this independence is conditioned by the underlying truth and performance parameters of each binder. This term is essential for both the Williams index and STAPLE. Since truth and performance are not known in advance, independence cannot be tested and classifiers generally make very unse correct errors. Given our seven segmentation methods, one might wonder if our results are not geared towards a subgroup of them. Our main concerns are as follows. First, FSL, EMS, EMA, SPM are all EM algorithms and it is possible that they have similar behaviors and biased common agreement. Second, many algorithms, as shown in Section 3.2, are based on training data and/or an earlier space atlas.

It is also likely that techniques with the same atlas will have similar results. In summary, although no manual segmentation was used as a reference, we were able to gather interesting facts about classifications and evaluation methods. First, it appears that the calculation of a baseline segmentation with STAPLE is not necessary to evaluate segmentation techniques and that the simpler Williams Index yields very similar results. The use of MDB plots provides an overview of the likeness of all classifiers and their proximity to a reference segment. We also observed the somewhat surprising result that two input channels can be worse than one, especially if the algorithm is not properly adapted, as we think for FSL2. And while there are winners and losers in our performance evaluation, we find that most classifiers are close and that there is no possible consolidation between them. We are now turning to validating our evaluation techniques by introducing manually segmented sub-regions of the brain as a gold standard. MdS plots have been created to verify data and detect potential clusters (Figure 10). The residual diagram shows significant discrepancies between the dies (1-JC) and the 2D distances. This may be because all indicators are far apart, making mapping extremely difficult.

Unfortunately, this conclusion cannot be drawn solely on the basis of parcels, so care must be taken not to draw strong statements from these parcels. For GM and WM, the data cannot simply be categorized into clusters, but some similar trends are observable. SPM1 and SPM2 are still fairly close to each other, with KNN1, KNN2 and WAT2 also generally quite close, particularly with regard to GM segmentation. Note that the MDS 2D diagram may have different distances, as the allocation of high-dimensional space to 2D distorts distances. The techniques are therefore not totally unbalanced, but it seems that they make decisions reasonably independent, or more accurately, of poor independent rankings. We are therefore convinced that the common agreement will not strongly favour a certain subset of techniques. For CSF, however, we can see that there is an observable separation between two channels and a channel binder.
